The Best Banana Bread Ever

I am a HUGE fan of banana bread.

Huge.

So is my husband, so much that we can barely wait until it cools enough to cut it when it comes out of the oven (often it ends up a bit crumpled as a result, but I don’t even care).  Its all steamy and warm, with the butter getting all melty.

Yum.

Last night I decided to whip up a quick loaf so I busted out my trusty recipe.  Weird thing though, I use a family members recipe and theirs turns out so different from mine and I really don’t change anything (other than adding a teaspoon of vanilla).  Theirs has a soft outside and super tender inside, while mine has a lovely crusty outside and a super tender inside.  Have you noticed that your recipe turns out different from the original even when following it exactly?

Anyways, I digress.

Please enjoy this amazing recipe and I hope it turns out wonderfully for you.

 Banana Bread

1/4 Cup Butter, 1 Cup Sugar, 1 Egg, 2-3 Mashed Bananas

1 1/2 Cups Flour, 1 Tsp Baking Soda, 1/4 Tsp Salt, 1 Tsp Vanilla

Cream butter and sugar, then add mashed bananas.  Add beaten egg and vanilla and mix well.  Add dry ingredients (I usually whisk them together in a separate bowl and then add to the liquids).  Add any nuts or chocolate if you are into that.  Pour into a greased loaf pan (I spray mine with Pam Coconut Oil and it always comes out easy) and bake at 350 until a toothpick comes out clean from the middle (usually for me about 50 minutes, but check on it periodically – the original recipe called for 30 minutes – which is super strange because my oven usually runs warm!).  Remove from oven and let cool (if you can) then enjoy!
