Banana Bread

| Cooking and Baking

We go through a lot of bananas in this house.  Sometimes it seems like I have two little monkeys living here.  (Perhaps I do.)  Needless to say, bananas don’t stick around for very long.  But every once in a while, I have a few that end up like this!

Yay!  . . . . Time to make banana bread!

I love banana bread! This is my favorite recipe.

1 1/3 cups AP flour
2 tsp. baking powder
1/2 tsp. baking soda
1/3 cup unsalted butter, room temp.
3/4 cup granulated sugar
2 large eggs
3 ripe bananas, mashed

Whisk together all the dry ingredients (except the sugar) and set aside.

In a separate bowl, beat butter, eggs and sugar until fluffy.

Stir in the mashed bananas.  I like to mash mine with a pastry cutter, until it’s almost soupy.  This gives an amazing banana flavor throughout the bread.

Add flour mixture to the wet ingredients.  Put into a greased bread pan and bake for 50 minutes at 350 degrees F.

    Yummy! I’ll have to hide some bananas in the cupboard if I want them to make it into bread!
