When Roommates Let Their Bananas Die...

... I make banana bread!

It's inevitable.

I hate watching bananas go to waste. Especially when they are at their full banana bread status potential. ESPECIALLY when I can make it in just one bowl!

Banana Bread
by Elise on Simply Recipes


3 or 4 ripe bananas, smashed
1/3 cup melted butter
1 cup sugar (easily reduce to 3/4 cup)
1 egg, beaten
1 tsp vanilla
1 tsp baking soda
1 pinch of salt
1 1/2 cups all purpose flour

Preheat oven to 350 F.

With a wooden spoon, mix butter into the mashed bananas in a large mixing bowl. Mix in the sugar, egg, and vanilla.Sprinkle the baking soda and salt over the mixture and mix in. Add the flour last, mix. Pour mixture into a buttered 4x8 loaf pan. Bake for 1 hour. Coll on a rack. Remove from pan and slice to serve.

Mine turned out looking kinda like a muffin. This is because it is easier for me (lazy college student) to grab and eat. Slicing takes way too much effort, I dirty a knife, and end up making a mess of crumbs on the counter.
