Hello Sugar Lovers!
Wow that’s one long title….So I cannot believe that I have never made banana bread on this channel. I would also like to state for the record that I am absolutely one of those people who can only spell banana if Gwen Stefani is helping me.
This is a great bread to make especially now because we are all stuck in the house so we do not need to be wasting any food.
I have a feeling I got this recipe from my grandma but I can’t be sure because it has been in my recipe book for forever.
Lets get started!
- 3 or 4 ripe bananas
- 1/3 cup melted butter
- 1 cup sugar
- 1 egg
- 1 tsp vanilla
- 1 tsp baking soda
- pinch of salt
- 1 1/2 cups of all purpose flour
- 1-2 cups chocolate chips (optimal)
When I pulled my recipe book out I noticed that I had quite a lot of stains on it. You know a recipe is good and well loved if you have missed the bowl with some ingredients due to your excitement…..Either that or I’m just a slob……Ok so first thing we are going to do is preheat the oven to 350 degrees. While that is heating mash up the bananas.
After you have mashed the bananas up into a goopy mixture your going to add in the melted butter and mix together. Now I have to use the stove for everyone so I melted my butter on the stove but you can use a microwave if you have one. There are times that having a microwave would be easier. Surprisingly though once you get rid of it and it isn’t there for convenience you get used to using the stove or oven. Give it a shot!
Your then going to mix in sugar, egg and vanilla. Look at that yummy goop…it gets better I promise.
Sprinkle the baking soda and salt over the mixture and combine. Then your going to add the flour. I have given up on trying to not get flour over my entire existence when I’m baking. Just embrace the mess people.
So I went a little off my recipe and added in some chocolate chips because…why the heck not. Add them into the batter and then some on top. I am a believer that chocolate chips make everything better. Make sure you grease not only the bottom of the pan but the sides as well. Pour all that yummy mixture in and pop it into the oven of one hour.
Once your done make sure you let it cool so that it is easy to pop out. When it has cooled you can tip it upside down and gently wiggle it so it doesn’t break. If it isn’t coming out you can use a knife to slide along the edges and then tip it over again.
Then your done! You know how there are a few things that you cook that your really good at for some reason? This is mine, I’m not sure why but I ain’t gonna argue. Its funny though my mom cannot make banana bread to save her life and I’m the opposite. She is also an amazing cook…she did not pass this trait on…thanks a lot mom.
It just goes to show you how unique everyone’s talents really are!
