Banana Bread

On Monday while waiting for the ADT guy to install our security system, I decided to bake banana bread. I have to be in a certain mood to bake and I suppose I was in it. Also, the three almost completely black bananas in the fruit bowl depressed me. So, I opened up the kitchen window to let the wonderful fall air in and got busy. The smell of baking banana bread was wonderful. And the bread was good too.

Banana Bread

3 or 4 ripe bananas, smashed
1/3 cup melted butter
3/4 cup white sugar
1/4 cup brown sugar
1 egg, beaten
1 and 1/2 teaspoon vanilla
1 teaspoon baking soda
Pinch of salt
1 1/2 cups of all-purpose flour

Preheat the 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 sprayed 4x8 inch loaf pan. Bake for 1 hour. Cool on a rack. Remove from pan and slice to serve.
