Who doesn’t love banana bread? It requires very little effort and it tastes amazing.

We made some the other day with the following recipe.


  • 2-3 ripe bananas, peeled
  • 1/3 cup melted butter
  • 1 tsp baking soda
  • Pinch of salt
  • 1/2 cup sugar
  • 1 large egg, beaten
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • 1 1/2 cups all-purpose flour


  1. Preheat oven to 350ยบ F
  2. Butter a 4×8 loaf pan
  3. In mixing bowl, mash the ripe bananas with a fork until smooth. Stir the melted butter in.
  4. Mix in the baking soda and salt. Stir in sugar, beaten egg, and vanilla extract. Mix in the flour.
  5. Pour the batter into loaf pan. Bake for 50 minutes, or until a tester comes out clean.
  6. Remove from oven and let cool before removing from pan.
