Banana Bread

Not often do we have bananas long enough to turn brown but on occasion that happens. So I came across a quick, easy, tasty banana bread recipe that I thought I'd share and save for my archives for future retrieval. I try to cook as much as I can from scratch. That in itself is a work in progress. So as you can imagine that is a whole lot of experimenting with recipes and a whole lot of recipes that never impress me enough to save. Last night by request of Maine Man I made apple muffins and tonight it was 4 layer bars as requested by the kids. They were both ok but not good enough to share or save. Get the point! I only post good stuff here ;)

1/2 cup butter
1 cup sugar
2 eggs, beaten
4 bananas, finely crushed
1 1/2 cups flour
1 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon vanilla
1 Cream together butter and sugar.
2 Add eggs and crushed bananas.
3 Combine well.
4 Sift together flour, soda and salt. Add to creamed mixture. Add vanilla.
5 Pour into greased and floured loaf pan.
6 Bake at 350 degrees for 60 minutes.
7 Keeps well, refrigerated.

P.S. I did not refrigerate and I topped it with walnuts.

For whatever reason I was unable to reference site where this recipe came form so her it is:

Did you know you can freeze bananas? They are REALLY mushy when you thaw them, but it's great if you're going to lose some but don't have enough for bread (or have WAY too many).

I've been leaving them in the peel but I'm planning on peeling, freezing on a cookie sheet and then tossing in a freezer bag in the future to prevent having to deal with peeling mush.

Your bread looks delicious. :-)

Country Girl,

That banana bread looks delicious, with the nuts topping. Next time I'll have to try the nuts topping.

I have a great recipe for apple cinnamon muffins. I'll be posting the recipe soon. I'll let you know when I post it.
