Banana Bread

One of my favorite things is Banana Bread and I don’t get to make it very often. But I noticed some really ripe banana on my counter and I thought it might be a good time to make some.

So I Googled — Banana Bread and it come up with 1,490,000 results. So I picked this one from the Food Network to try out. I’m pretty sure that I have all of the ingredients for the recipe.

Banana Bread

  • Prep Time: 2 hr 0 min
  • Inactive Prep Time: 0 min
  • Cook Time: 1 hr 10 min
  • Level: Easy
  • Serves: 1 loaf
1 cup granulated sugar
8 tablespoons (1 stick) unsalted butter, room temperature
2 large eggs
3 ripe bananas
1 tablespoon milk
1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
2 cups all-purpose flour
1 teaspoon baking powder
1 teaspoon baking soda
1 teaspoon salt

Preheat the oven to 325 degrees F. Butter a 9 x 5 x 3 inch loaf pan.Cream the sugar and butter in a large mixing bowl until light and fluffy. Add the eggs one at a time, beating well after each addition.

In a small bowl, mash the bananas with a fork. Mix in the milk and cinnamon. In another bowl, mix together the flour, baking powder, baking soda and salt.

Add the banana mixture to the creamed mixture and stir until combined. Add dry ingredients, mixing just until flour disappears.

Pour batter into prepared pan and bake 1 hour to 1 hour 10 minutes, until a toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean. Set aside to cool on a rack for 15 minutes. Remove bread from pan, invert onto rack and cool completely before slicing.

Spread slices with honey or serve with ice cream.

I have never had it with ice cream before, might have to buy a pint just to try it out! 🙂
