BANANA BANANA BREAD
Theres so much banana in this bread it needed to be said twice! This is a yummy recipe with loads of banana and cinnamon, its just mmm mmm good! throw some butter on there and your in banana heaven!
Lets get started:
Cast & Crew:
all-purpose flour, baking soda , salt, butter, brown sugar, cinnamon, vanilla, eggs, overripe bananas (these could have prob. been aged a little more for extra sweetness but I couldn’t wait any longer 😉
grease pans. I always use Baker’s Joy, as I always say, Its God’s gift to baking! I also prefer to use mini loaf pans as well as mini cupcake pans. I prefer small servings as opposed to one big loaf. But that’s just me 🙂 It’s also easier when you are giving them as a gift or taking them to the office
in a bowl, start with 2 cups of all purpose flour
add 1 tsp baking soda
and 1/4 tsp salt, mix together
In a seperate mixing bowl, start with 1/2 cup butter (one stick softened)
Add 1 cup brown sugar
Now mix in 1 tsp cinnamon and 1 tsp vanilla, and then turn the mixer off
slice up 5-6 bananas in a cup or bowl,
and mash them up, this will give you aprox 2 1/3 – 2 1/2 cups of mashed banana, give or take. the more the merrier in my eyes 🙂 if you have less banana it will still work, but it won’t be as sweet, and it will be slightly less banana-y , but it will still come out as banana bread 😉
go back to the creamed sugar and beat in 2 eggs
now beat in your mashed bananas until well blended, turn off the mixer, you are now done with the mixer.
it will look like this
now add in your flour mixture AND……
HAND STIR mixture together just enough to moisten, do not over mix
and it will look like this!
Spoon into greased pans
Bake at 350 , aprox 18 min for mini’s and one hour for large loafs
cool on wire racks and wallah ! Warm yummy Banana Banana Bread!
