Day 45: Banana Bread

Day 45.

I had some bananas that were turning, so I figured it was time to make banana bread!

Here's what you'll need.

2 cups flour
1/2 tsp baking powder
1 tsp baking soda
1 tbsp. + 2 tsp. milk
1 egg
1/2 cup softened butter
1 cup sugar
3 overripe bananas

Preheat your oven to 350*

If you saw my post on banana muffins, you'll know that this is the best way to mash bananas. If you didn't see that one, know now that this is the best way to mash bananas.

Photobucket
Mix flour, baking powder and baking soda together in a bowl. Set aside.

Photobucket
Cream together butter and sugar.

Photobucket
In yet another bowl, mix the milk and egg together with the bananas.

Photobucket
Dump the banana mixture into the flour mixture.

Photobucket
Put it all in the mixing bowl and mix well.

Photobucket
Spray the insides of 2 loaf pans with nonstick spray. You can use just one pan if you want, but it'll be HUGE.

Photobucket
Divide the batter evenly between the two pans.

Photobucket
I like to sprinkle on a bit of cinnamon sugar too.

Bake at 350* for about 30 minutes, or until nicely browned.

Yum! I think a slice of this with a bit of butter will be my breakfast!

YUM!!! If I weren't so tired I'd make this right NOW! But my kids are off school tomorrow so I think this is now on our agenda! Thanks!

That is what I need to make right now! The bananas are just the right shade of ripe!
