My kids are fickle when it comes to food. Are yours? Last week, the baby loved bananas. Couldn't get enough of them. Ate a dozen in a week. This week he hates them. He won't even look at them.
So I made banana bread with those bananas just lying around getting brown. I'd actually say it's more of a cake; I mean, it has a cup of sugar and a stick of butter in it! It's a Paula Deen recipe, you see, so just know it's not good for you. Eat a little, not a lot. But this is my go to recipe for banana bread since you don't have to drag out your mixer.
1/2 cup (1 stick) butter, at room temperature
1 cup sugar
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1-1/2 cups all-purpose flour
1 teaspoon baking soda
1 teaspoon baking powder
3 ripe bananas, mashed
Preheat the oven to 350. Grease a 9x5 loaf pan. In a mixing bowl, combine the butter and sugar; mix well. Add the salt, eggs, vanilla, flour, baking soda, baking powder and bananas. Mix well. Pour the batter into the prepared pan and bake for 50 minutes.
