Simple Banana Bread
Have some bananas that have gone black and squishy? Make banana bread!
That's what we did last week when we had two bananas that just did not look appealing anymore.
We only had two bananas so we halved this recipe, but here is the full one:
1/2 cup butter
1 cup sugar
2 eggs, beaten
1 1/2 cups flour
1 tsp baking soda
1/2 tsp salt
1/2 tsp vanilla
Preheat the oven to 350 F (175 C)
Cream the butter and sugar together. Add the eggs, vanilla, and bananas. Use a spoon or fork to crush the bananas into the batter.
Sift together the flour, baking soda and salt. Add the the mixture and combine well.
Pour into a greased and floured bread pan.
Bake for 60 minutes (ours took 45 minutes because using half of the recipe made the bread thinner)
Enjoy plain or with butter or honey. Tasty as leftovers either as is or toasted.

Have even more old bananas? We also recommend making our Amazing Banana Crunch Muffins.
