Banana bread has always been a favourite of mine.
When I was little, there were always recipes mum made, and recipes dad made – this was a dad recipe!
½ cup of margarine or
2/3 cup of granulated sugar
2 mashed bananas
1 ½ cups of all purpose flour
1 teaspoon of baking soda
¼ teaspoon of salt
*chocolate chips or walnuts (optional)
Preheat the oven to 350°F
In a heat proof bowl, melt the butter and then add the sugar.
Mix it together. Add the egg, and mix.
It should look like this:
Add the two mashed bananas, and mix.
Then add in the final ingredients of flour, baking soda and salt.
Grease and flour a bread pan, and then add in the mixture.
Try to level it all out.
Bake for 45 minutes to an hour.
Whenever I make this it tends to be closer to an hour.
Stick a skewer in the middle, and if it comes off with any raw batter, you know it needs to be cooked a little long.
