My favorite banana bread!

Looking for a delicious breakfast? This quick and easy recipe has quickly become a favorite in my house! My 3 year old often requests it for breakfast. And I love making it for him. With all common ingredients found around the house I can make this pretty much any time. I feel good giving it to him too! Much better than a doughnut :)

  • 3 or 4 ripe bananas, smashed
  • 1/3 cup melted butter
  • 1 cup sugar (can easily reduce to 3/4 cup)
  • 1 egg, beaten
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • Pinch of salt
  • 1 1/2 cups of all-purpose flour

No need for a mixer for this recipe. Preheat the oven to 350°F (175°C). With a wooden spoon, mix butter into the mashed bananas in a large mixing bowl. 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 mixture into a buttered 4x8 inch loaf pan. Bake for 1 hour. Cool on a rack. Remove from pan and slice to serve.

[I usually bake it for about 45 minutes and it turns out perfect!]
