Ingredients

  • 1 3/4 cup flour
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 1/4 tsp baking soda
  • 2 tsp baking powder
  • 1/2 cup butter
  • 3 or 4 very ripe mashed bananas
  • 1 cup sugar
  • 2 eggs beaten
  • 1 tsp vanilla

Instructions

  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
  • Combine flour, baking powder, soda, and salt and sift together.
  • In a separate, slightly larger bowl cream the butter until light and fluffy. Add sugar to butter until well blended. 
  • Beat eggs in a small bowl or cup and add to sugar-butter mixture. Mix until well blended.
  • Mash the ripened bananas and then fold into the egg and sugar mixture and mix with a fork or whisk until well blended. You don't want to over mix this part. 

  • Fold flour mixture into the banana mixture in four separate portions and mix well  after each addition.
  • Once blended well you can turn the ingredients into a well-greased loaf pan ( 8" x 4" x 2.5")
  • Bake for about 50 minutes or until it is golden brown. You should be able to insert a fork or toothpick and it remains dry. Enjoy!
