Recipes Jo mamma never told you about: Banana Bread

Last I told you that saving your bananas would come in handy, well here's the perfect recipe to turn them into a masterpiece. It's simple but perfect, and I've been making it since University.

What you'll need:

  • 3 or 4 ripe bananas, smashed
  • 1/3 cup of melted butter
  • 13/4 cup of sugar
  • 1 egg, beaten
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • Pinch of salt
  • 1 & 1/2 cups of flour

The best part about this recipe is that you don't even need a blender. Preheat the oven to 350 F. In a mixing bowl blend the butter into the mashed bananas with a wooden spoon. Then mix in the sugar, egg, and vanilla. Sprinkle the baking soda and salt over the mixture and mix in. Add the flour last, mix. Pour the mixture into a buttered 4x8 inch loaf pan and bake for 45 mins - 1 hour (depending on the oven). Cool on a rack for 10 mins. Once cooled remove from pan and slice to serve.
