Banana Bread

  I know there are a billion banana bread recipes out there, but of all the ones I've tried and eaten from others, this is the best one I've had.

It might have something to do with the flour to sugar ratio. Possibly the amount of bananas. I don't really know. What I DO know is that with this recipe in your arsenal, you will be able to woo and influence people of your choice.

Do I jest?


taken from: Remedies for the "I Don't Cook" Syndrome

1 C sugar
1/2 C butter

cream together (yes, like you are making cookies)

2 eggs

beat well.

add 2 C flour
1 tsp baking soda
1/2 tsp. salt


then add

3 mashed bananas
1 tsp vanilla (or more)
1/2 C chopped nuts (optional - but why would you opt not?)

mix until combined and put into one loaf pan or 4 mini's.

bake one hour at 350. The crust will be very dark. That is because of the amount of sugar.

Take this to people you don't know and they will become your friends.
