crazy easy banana bread
Let it snow, let it snow, let it snoooooowwwwwww! We just had the first snow of the season in Chicago and I love it! People think I’m nuts but I love the cold too – it must be my Michigander roots. I think I’ll throw on Elf and start decorating the house today. It’s never too early for twinkly lights, right? 😀
Alrighty, let’s get to this yummy recipe. As much as I keep telling y’all that I’m not a baker, I feel like I just might finally be getting the hang of it. I had some over-ripe bananers so thought I’d give banana bread a go. I found this pretty simple recipe over at Genius Kitchen and loved how quick and easy it was to make – and also how tasty it turned out! I think next time I’ll throw in some chocolate chips and walnuts to take it up a notch. Maybe I’ll get real wild and add some coconut…okay, I’m already talking myself into making this again soon!
1/2 cup butter, softened
1 cup sugar
2 beaten eggs
4 smushed bananas
1 1/2 cups flour
1 tsp baking soda
1/2 tsp salt
1/2 tsp vanilla
Preheat the oven to 350 degrees. Then cream together the butter and sugar in a mixer, add the eggs and crushed bananas and mix until well combined. In a separate bowl, mix together the flour, baking soda and salt, then add to the banana mixture with the vanilla and mix until just combined. Pour this into a greased and floured loaf pan and bake for 55-60 minutes. Remove from the loaf pan and let cool for a bit before cutting into. Then eat up!

I just made this same thing a few weeks ago and I was like wow, I never remembered how super quick and easy making banana bread was!! I mean it’s like no time at all and it’s one of my favorites! This sure looks good girl. And YAY snow!
Double YAY! Do you have any secret ingredients for your banana bread? Do tell! 😀
Only exactly what you were planning on tossing in next time 😉 …walnuts and choco chips!!! I can’t make it without those anymore haha
I love ❤️ banana bread! What I like to do is sprinkle the top with a little sugar before baking. It creates a sweet crust on the top. 😋
Oooh good tip, thanks!
