As requested: Banana Bread

Why am I looking at this boring blog post you ask? Well I got the answer!

 
 
I got a request to do a post on Banana bread, so here it is!


    "Banana bread is a type of quick bread that contains mashed ripe bananas. Banana bread is often a moist, sweet, cake-like bread which typically uses baking soda as the leavening agent instead of yeast; however, there are some banana bread recipes that are traditional-style yeast breads.
   Banana breads can also be made from frozen bananas. Wrapped in clingfilm, still in their skins, bananas will keep in the freezer for up to six months to be used for breads, cakes, etc" (Wikipedia)
   There is even a Vietnamese version of this, called  Bánh chuối. Just take a second to analyze and process how delicious that must be. You got it right! It's better than the best thing you have EVER tasted!

Bla bla bla, I know all that stuff. BORING! I'm going to teach you how to  make this divine piece of food!





That's right! And here's the recipe!

Ingredients

    * 3 or 4 ripe bananas, smashed
    * 1/3 cup melted butter
    * 1 cup sugar (can easily reduce to 3/4 cup)
    * 1 egg, beaten
    * 1 teaspoon vanilla
    * 1 teaspoon baking soda
    * Pinch of salt
    * 1 1/2 cups of all-purpose flour

Method

   No need for a mixer for this recipe. Preheat the oven to 350°F (175°C). With a wooden spoon, mix butter into the mashed bananas in a large mixing bowl. Mix in the sugar, egg, and vanilla. Sprinkle the baking soda and salt over the mixture and mix in. Add the flour last, mix. Pour mixture into a buttered 4x8 inch loaf pan. Bake for 1 hour. Cool on a rack. Remove from pan and slice to serve.

Good luck making/eating/worshiping this awesome bread!
