Simple Banana Bread Recipe

Here is a very simple Banana Bread Recipe to brighten your day. The weather has been a little gloomy lately. Grey skies, a little rain here and there. The leaves are appearing on all the trees, the grass is as green as could be, but we're all wondering when the warm weather is coming. I've been spending most of my time inside in big winter sweaters, wrapped up in blankets. When is the cold going to end? I had a serious craving for something baked straight out of the oven, and there were a few bananas around that were too brown to eat now. So I thought I'd make some warm and tasty banana bread!

This recipe is so easy to make. It only took about five minutes to prepare and an hour to cook. Simple as that. No fuss.  
*3 bananas 
*1 1/2 cups flour
*1 cup sugar
*1/3 cup butter (melt in microwave)
*1 egg
*1 tsp vanilla
*1 tsp baking soda
* pinch of salt
Okay, this is super simple! First preheat your oven to 350 degrees F. Get out a mixing bowl and mash your bananas in it until fairly smooth. Next add your melted butter and mix. Then mix in your sugar, egg, and vanilla extract. After that you can add your salt and baking soda and mix. If you're feeling adventurous add a bit of cinnamon in there too! Lastly, add your flour. Once that is all mixed together, pour your mixture into a loaf pan. Bake for exactly one hour and it comes out perfect! 
You could actually use this recipe to make muffins or even bake it in a cake pan and ice it for a really nice cake! Let your banana bread cool for a while. Then put it onto a platter and slice it up. My loaf pan has a pretty design on the bottom of it, so I flip my banana bread upside down when I take it out so the design shows. How cute! It should still be hot enough that it tastes fresh and delicious. You won't want to stop eating it! 
You can eat it plain or add some butter or margarine. I love mine with a hot cup of tea.


Happy banana bread-making!
