I seem to have extra bananas lately. For some reason they aren’t getting eaten as fast as they used to. This recipe is easy (they way I like it).
- 1/2 cup butter
- 1 cup sugar
- 2 eggs
- 4 large ripe bananas smashed
- 1 tsp vanilla
- 1 tsp baking soda
- 1 tsp baking powder
- 2 cups flower
- dash salt
- 1/2 bag of mini chocolate chips (or any chopped chocolate)
- nuts of your choice (optional)
Preheat oven to 350F. Cream butter and sugar, add eggs and beat. Add bananas and vanilla, beat. Stir dry ingredients together in another bowl and then gently mix into banana mixture. Blend in chocolate, and then fold in nuts, if desired (my family does NOT desire).
Bake at 350F for 50-55 minutes for large loaf, check center is fairly dry with toothpick, knife, etc. If not, add a couple minutes at a time until cooked through. Be careful not to overcook.
Makes one large loaf pan or 4 small loaf pans (fill to half full in pan).
Enjoy with butter!!!
