Banana Bread

Nobody likes wasted bananas, so do this instead of throwing away your spoiled bananas. This is a basic banana bread recipe with a couple of my personal tweaks that really take it over the top. If you have bananas going bad, freeze them until you save four of them to make this.

Time: 1 hr

Yield: 1 loaf

Ingredients

  •  1 stick butter (softened if possible)
  •  ½ cup white sugar
  •  ½ cup brown sugar
  •  2 eggs
  •  4 old or VERY ripe bananas (You can get away with 3, but trust me you want 4.)
  •  1 ½ cup flour
  •  1 teaspoon baking powder or soda
  •  Dash of salt
  •  Dash of vanilla (Optional, but recommended)
  •  Dash of cinnamon (Optional, but recommended)
