There’s one sweet thing I bake regularly, and that’s banana bread. Solely because we’re bad at eating fruit, and bananas always get too brown. Thankfully they survive well in the freezer.
And as soon as I have 3, BAM.
Banana bread time!!
Banana Bread Recipe:
- 3 large, super ripe bananas. I don’t wanna see any yellow on you! (you can use slightly less ripe bananas if you can’t wait. I’ll only judge you slightly.)
- 1 large egg
- 1/2 cup melted butter, cooled. (oil works fine, too)
- 2/3 cup granulated sugar
- 1 tsp vanilla extract (I used vanilla bean paste, being that it still- is all I have.)
- 1 tsp cinnamon
- 1 1/4 cup flour
- 1 tsp baking powder
- 1 tsp baking soda
- Pinch of Salt
- 1/3 cup plus 2 tbsp finely chopped walnuts (or raisins, or chocolate chips, or gumballs for all I care.)
In another bowl combine all dry ingredients, except for walnuts, and mix. Fold into wet mixture until it is thoroughly combined, but do not over mix. Mix in 1/3 cup chopped walnuts.
Grease and flour a 9x5x3 or whatever sized loaf pan or pie plate, or muffin cups. (I’m all about culinary liberties)
