Banana Bread

22 Jul

A slice of banana bread.

  • four ripe bananas, peeled, sliced and mashed in a large mixing bowl.  TIP: use a potato masher to mash the bananas; if you don’t have a masher, a fork is fine, too.
  • 1/3 cup unsalted melted butter, cooled
  • 1 large egg, beaten
  • 1 tsp vanilla
  • 1 cup sugar (a bit less if the bananas are super ripe)
  • 1 tsp baking soda
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 1 tsp cinnamon
  • 1.5 cups of flour

Four bananas. These should be ripened some more before using to make banana bread.

Using a potato masher to mash the bananas.

Into the banana bowl, add in the butter, egg, vanilla and sugar.  In a separate bowl, mix the baking soda, salt, cinnamon and flour. Gradually add the dry ingredients into the wet ingredients.  The batter will be thick and have a caramel-like colour.

Pour the batter into a buttered 5 by 6 inch baking dish.  Bake for 45 minutes in a pre-heated 350° oven.  Cool before serving.
