Tasty Tuesday: Delicious Banana Bread!

Stephanie is very into baking lately, and asks me every day what we're going to make. I love the time that she and I get to spend together in the kitchen, and I have to say that she's a very good helper! She pours things into the bowl and mixes everything together for me. She is always proud of our final product and tells me that she is my star chef. 

One of our favorite baked goods is banana bread, and after trying many different recipes I finally found the perfect one. The original recipe came from SimplyRecipes.com and can be found here: Simply Recipes Banana Bread

I modified it very little because it was almost perfect the way it was. I've made it twice now, and the first time it came out a little overdone, so I shortened the baking time by 5 minutes. I added walnuts the first time, which was delicious as well. (My husband likes chocolate chips in his banana bread so I'll be adding those next time.)

Here is the recipe. Enjoy!

Banana Bread

3 or 4 ripe bananas, smashed (I used 3 each time and let Stephanie mash them with a potato masher. It was her favorite part of the whole process.)
1/3 C melted butter
1 C sugar 
1 egg, beaten
1 teas vanilla
1 teas baking soda
pinch of salt
1 1/2 C all-purpose flour

1) Preheat oven to 350 
2) With a wooden spoon, mix butter into the mashed bananas, in a large mixing bowl
3) Mix in sugar, egg and vanilla
4) Sprinkle in the baking soda and salt. Mix.
5) Pour mixture into a buttered 4/8 inch loaf pan. (I used cooking spray instead of butter)
6) Bake for 1 hour (As I stated above, I took it out 5 minutes sooner.)
7) Cool on a rack, then remove from pan. Slice to serve. (We ate this yesterday while it was still warm from the oven. SO delicious!)
