Banana Bread

If you have some bananas that look like this in the larder then you need to make this banana bread!

If you have a few bananas sitting around the kitchen that you have been meaning to use but have gone past the yellow stage and are soft and brown then why not use them to make this beautiful banana bread instead of wasting them and throwing them out!

3 or 4 ripe bananas, smashed
1/3 cup melted butter
1 cup sugar
1 egg, beaten
1 teaspoon vanilla
1 teaspoon baking soda
Pinch of salt
1 1/2 cup of flour

Now the best thing about this is that it is so simple! All you do is mash the bananas up with the melted butter until a smooth paste, then simply add all the other ingredients into a large mixing bowl and using a wooden spoon bring it together until smooth.

When mixed and poyred into the tin it should look like this!

You need to pre heat the oven to 350/180. Pour the mix into a greased oaf tin and bake for one hour. If you are not sure if it's cooked insert a cocktail stick into the middle of the loaf and remove, if it is clean when it comes out it's cooked. Remove from the oven and place on a wire cooling rack for 20 minutes!! Thats it, sloce it and enjoy it!! So so easy!

If all goes well you should be looking at something like this now
