Today’s banana bread recipe once again comes from our guest baker Rose. All this baking is not out of the ordinary for her, she’s been baking at least twice a week for a couple of years. This is the very first thing each of my girls made as they started off their baking careers. The great thing about it is that it’s so simple there’s no real way of messing up so it’ a great starter recipe. We’ve actually burned this bread a few times, and it still tasted pretty great.
Another thing I like about it is that the we always seem to have the ingredients on hand, and there’s hardly a need to go out and buy anything else.
2 ripe bananas (mashed)
1/3 cup of melted butter
1 cup of sugar
1 egg (beaten)
1 teaspoon of vanilla extract
1 teaspoon of baking soda
A pinch of salt
1 1/2 cups of flour
1/2 cup of milk
- Preheat oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit.
2. In a large bowl combine baking soda, salt and flour.
3. In a separate bowl mix butter and sugar. Once it’s well combined, add milk, mashed bananas and the egg. Mix until it’s completely blended.
4. Slowly add the dry ingredients into the banana mixture and combine lightly. There’s no need to overmix.
5. Pour the batter into a lightly greased bread pan and bake for 1 hour, or until a toothpick inserted in the middle of the loaf comes out clean.
6. Let bread cool in the pan for at least 10 minutes before removing it and serving.
7. We often have a slice for breakfast, it’s also great with coffee, or a cold cup of milk. Enjoy!
