Everyone loves comfort food recipes like spaghetti, fried chicken, and one of my all-time favorites, homemade banana bread.
We have been cooking a lot at home recently, and since my husband knows how much I love to bake, he has been asking for banana bread. I had to keep saying no to his request due to our bananas being fresh from the store and not ripe enough yet. Well, some time has passed, and now we only have two bananas left, luckily they are ripe. I figured I should probably make it sooner rather than later as I love to put things off, ha.
If you have a little free time, grab a few ripe bananas and make a couple of loaves. What’s great about banana bread is it’s enjoyable with a cup of coffee, tea, or any time of the day.
How to make banana bread:
- 1 1/2 cups of overripe bananas, mashed
- 1 large egg, beaten
- 1 1/2 cups of all-purpose flour
- 1 cup sugar
- 1 tsp baking soda
- 1 pinch salt
- 1 tablespoon vanilla extract
- 1/3 cup butter, melted
- Preheat the oven to 350 degrees and grease a loaf pan with butter or a non-stick cooking spray.
- Peel 2 bananas and mash them into a large mixing bowl.
- Mix in the melted butter, sugar, vanilla and egg,
- Then mix in the flour, baking soda, and salt.
- Pour into the loaf pan and bake for 55-60 minutes.
