I had three pitiful bananas on my table this morning. They were black and limp and I decided it was time to do something with them. (As we all know, black bananas are the best for banana bread!)
my recipe is from this post
3 or 4 ripe bananas, chopped or smashed
1/3 cup melted butter
1/2 cup sugar (I reduced this from 1 cup to 1/2 cup)
1 teaspoon vanilla
1 teaspoon baking soda
Pinch of salt
1 1/2 cups of all-purpose flour
1. Heat oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit. (When I made this recipe I waited to turn the oven on until the end because I didn’t know how long the recipe would take to prepare. It was so quick to prepare that I suggest turning on the oven NOW.)
2. Mix butter with banana. Add sugar, egg, and vanilla. Sprinkle baking soda and salt over batter and mix in. Add flour; mix.
3. Pour into a greased loaf pan. (I used olive oil; butter would also be fine.)
4. Bake for 1 hour. Remove from pan; cool on wire rack.
