This is a very simple banana bread recipe, but so good. You can add nuts or chocolate chips for extra texture and flavor.
Preheat your oven to 350 F.
Grease your loaf pans with butter, oil or cooking spray – whatever your preference.
In a large mixing bowl, mash the bananas with a fork until mushy.
Melt the unsalted butter or margarine in a small saucepan.
Add butter, sugar, eggs and vanilla to the bowl with the mashed bananas. Mix until well combined.
In a medium mixing bowl, combine the dry ingredients including flour, baking soda and salt.
Add the dry ingredients to the wet. Stir until well combined.
Divide batter into loaf pans and place in 350 F oven for about 50 minutes to 1 hour. Check if the loaf is done by inserting a toothpick in the center. If it comes out clean, it’s done. Allow to cool completely, slice and serve. If you don’t need 2 loaves, you can freeze one. Just wrap it tightly in saran wrap, place into a air-tight container and save it for when you need it.
