I've been writting blogs about how much i adore bananas, and was so so sad i finally had like 10 bananas, but they were all going bad. Alas, i made these wonderous muffins to save my bananas!
Banana Bread Recipe
* 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
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.
I made mine in a muffin pan instead of a bread pan, and added cranberries and walnuts and they were scrumptious. I highly recommend these, they were so tasty, and they stayed fresh for a whole week. (if you wait a whole week to eat them)
