We forgot to pack up some bananas the last time we were here at the Rock House, so when we got back they were pretty overripe (not rotten or covered in fruitflies thankfully) and perfect for making some homemade banana bread. Here’s the recipe I used, though I wish I had some pecans or walnuts or something to add to it. Next time. Meanwhile…
- 3 ripe mashed bananas
- 1 cup white sugar (I use a Splenda/Sugar for baking mix)
- 1 egg
- 1/4 cup melted butter
- 1 1/2 cups flour
- 1 teaspoon baking soda
- 1 teaspoon salt
- Preheat oven to 325 degrees F. Grease a 9×5-inch loaf pan.
- Combine bananas, sugar, egg, and butter together in a bowl. Mix flour and baking soda together in a separate bowl; stir into banana mixture until batter is mixed then stir in salt . Pour batter into the prepared loaf pan.
- Bake about 1 hour or until a toothpick inserted in the center of the bread comes out clean.
Not really optional:
Serve warm with homemade vanilla ice cream.
