Ingredients: 2 to 3 very ripe bananas, peeled 1/3 cup melted butter 1 teaspoon baking soda Pinch of salt 1/2 cup sugar (and 1/4 cup more if you like it really sweet) 1 large egg, beaten 1 teaspoon vanilla extract 1 1/2 cups of all-purpose flour Directions: 1) Preheat the oven to 350°F and butter a 4x8-inch loaf pan. 2) In a mixing bowl, mash the ripe bananas with a fork until completely smooth. Stir the melted butter into the mashed bananas. 3) Mix in the baking soda and salt. 4) Stir in the sugar, beaten egg, and vanilla extract. 5) Mix in the flour. Do not over mix the flour batter. 6) Pour the batter into your prepared loaf pan. Bake for 55 minutes to 1 hour at 350°F (test with toothpick if you prefer) 7) Remove from oven and let cool in the pan for a few minutes. Best to remove the banana bread from the pan and let cool completely before serving -- I can usually never wait :-). Slice with bread knife and enjoy!
