You're Right, You're Right...

Yeah yeah, so I haven't delivered as promised yesterday. Will you except my apologies?!

So, today I got home from work and decided to make some banana bread (background: I've been trying to raid our refrigerator and freezer to find items that have been hiding and we haven't been using. Well I hit the jackpot and found 12 [YES 12!] perfectly blackened bananas that I keep contributing to. I decided to take inventory and diminish a little.).

Sooooo... I went to a site that I just recently discovered. It is called Simply Recipes, and it is wonderful. She has great recipes, and a really good archive to look up recipes from!
Tada! This is a recipe that is so simple and so moist. I will definitely be coming back to this one!

Banana Bread Recipe
Taken from Simply Recipes

Ingredient List
3 or 4 ripe bananas, smashed
1/3 cup melted butter
1 cup sugar (3/4 c was plenty for me!)
1 egg, beaten
1 teaspoon vanilla
1 teaspoon baking soda
Pinch of salt
1 1/2 cups of all-purpose flour

1. Preheat oven to 350°F. 2. With a wooden spoon, mix butter into the bananas in large mixing bowl. Mix in the sugar, egg, and vanilla. Sprinkle with the baking soda and salt. Stir. Add the flour last. Mix. 3. Pour into a bread pan (4x8 inches) and bake for 1 hour. Cool on rack. Remove from pan and slice and serve. Fool proof in my opinion!


  1. Erika ~ if you like to cut - sugar 1/2 unsweetened applesauce and 1/2 sugar work well also. Hugs V

  2. Good idea! I have done that before and completely forgot this time.

  3. can I use fresh bananas or do they have to be ripened.......hahahaha
    Looks very very good, wish I could have some
