Banana bread always sounds good to me, but I never seem to get around to making it. I have a child who loves bananas, and they usually don't last more than a day or two when we bring them home from the store. I managed to hang on to a few this time around, and when they were starting to get spotted and soft...we made banana bread! I found a super quick recipe on The Fresh Loaf, which is a site dedicated to bread baking.
10 Minute Banana Bread from The Fresh Loaf
2-3 very ripe bananas
1/2 stick butter, softened
2/3 cup sugar
1 1/3 cup all purpose flour
3/4 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
1/4 teaspoon baking powder
1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
1/2 cup chopped pecans
Preheat oven to 350. Combine bananas, butter, eggs and sugar in a small bowl. Use a fork to mash ingredients and combine well. Small chunks of banana are fine, but I mashed mine so it was pretty unrecognizable.
In a larger bowl, whisk together the remaining dry ingredients. Add your banana mixture, and stir until well combined. Pour into greased loaf pan and bake for 45-50 minutes.
Cool in pan for 10 minutes or so, then turn loaf out of pan and enjoy.
