When Allrecipes member, Shelly,
submitted this recipe for Banana Bread, she commented, “Why compromise
the banana flavor? This banana bread is moist and delicious, with loads
of banana flavor! Friends and family love my recipe,
and say it’s by far the best! It’s wonderfully toasted,
Enjoy!” Let’s start by preheating the
oven to 350 degrees. Lightly grease a 9 by 5 inch
loaf pan with softened butter, or vegetable oil spray. Next, in a large bowl, combine
2 cups all purpose flour, with a teaspoon of baking soda, and a quarter teaspoon of salt. Now, in a separate bowl, cream
together half a cup of butter, that’s been softening at room
temperature, with 3 quarters of a cup of
brown sugar. Then beat 2 eggs, and add those to the mixture. And now, mash 4 to 5 over ripe
bananas. In the end you’re looking for
2 and a third cups banana. So use what you need. Blend it all together well. Now we can stir the banana
mixture into the flour mixture. Mix it just to moisten, you don’t
want to over work the flour. And pour the batter into the
prepared loaf pan. Place the filled pan in a preheated
oven for 60 to 65 minutes. Until a toothpick inserted in the
center of the loaf comes out clean. Let the bread cool in the pan
for ten minutes, and then turn it out onto
a wire rack. This banana bread is so good that
they named it twice: Banana Banana Bread!
