Bake, of course!
My mom handed me some old bananas and her banana bread recipe and I went at it. I love these quick bread recipes.. before I came back to the states to visit, I made apple bread... and now I just can't wait to make pumpkin bread.
I probably could have eaten half the loaf almost as soon as it came out of the oven.. but I figured I should save some for the rest of the family. ;)
The Best Banana Bread
recipe from my Mama
- 1/2 cup butter
- 1 cup sugar
- 2 eggs
- 1 cup mashed banana (I used 3 brown bananas)
- 1 1/2 cup flour
- 1/2 cup vanilla yogurt
- 1 tsp. baking soda
- 1 tsp. salt
- 1 tsp. vanilla
- Pinch of cinnamon (optional.. because I just think everything I bake in the fall has to have cinnamon)
Preheat oven to 350 F. Cream butter, sugar, and eggs. Add remaining ingredients and stir to blend (but don't over-do it). Sprinkle a little cinnamon on top and bake in a greased loaf pan for 50 minutes.
I don't think it could get any easier.. or yummier (is that a word?).
