Due to some noise issues in our home today I am a little late sharing this week’s recipe.
We are having our shower redone and work started today.
I tell you, the banging, hammering, ripping gets old fast.
Little One is a bit sensitive to loud noises and does not like this one bit.
She started crying at one point and I had to take her to our neighbors house for a bit and then the pool to escape the noise.
But here I am, ready with my recipe of the week… Banana Bread.
I had a few old bananas laying around last week and was about to throw them out when on a whim I decided to find a recipe to use them up.
The one I found is quick, simple and just delicious.
3 or 4 ripe bananas (I only used two and it was fine.)
1/3 cup melted butter
1 cup sugar (I reduced to 3/4 cup.)
1 egg, beaten
1 teaspoon vanilla
1 teaspoon baking soda
pinch of salt
1 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
about a 1/4 cup chopped almonds (my addition)
Preheat oven to 350°.
Mash bananas in a bowl, mix in the melted butter with a wooden spoon.
Mix in the sugar, beaten egg and vanilla.
Sprinkle baking soda and salt on top of mixture, mix in.
Add the flour, mix well.
I also added a 1/4 cup chopped almonds. But that’s up to individual taste.
Pour into a buttered/greased 4×8 loaf pan.
Bake for one hour.
Cool on rack.
Remove from pan, slice and serve.
(It tastes really good still warm with a bit of buttery spread.)
