Banana Bread

Bananas are a usual at my place first few days we try to consume them with upma when they are just of the right ripeness then as days pass by they start turning color and then nobody wants them any more not even me. So usually these ripe and slightly blackened bananas get transformed into the banana bread I am sure who ever invented this recipe did it out of desperation to use up the too ripe bananas what ever be the case it turns out great. This recipe is based on the food network website very easy and simple to make , and a great snack too.

what u need :

  • 1 cup granulated sugar
  • 1 tablespoons (1 stick) unsalted butter at room temperature
  • 2 large eggs
  • 3 ripe bananas
  • 1 tablespoon milk
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla
  • 2cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1 teaspoon salt
Preheat the oven to 325 degrees F. Butter a 9 x 5 x 3 inch loaf pan.
Cream the sugar and butter in a large mixing bowl until light and fluffy. Add the eggs one at a time, beating well after each addition.In a small bowl, mash the bananas with a fork. Mix in the milk and cinnamon. In another bowl, mix together the flour, baking powder, baking soda and salt.Add the banana mixture to the creamed mixture and stir until combined. Add dry ingredients, mixing just until flour disappears.
Pour batter into prepared pan and bake 1 hour to 1 hour 10 minutes, until a toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean. Set aside to cool on a rack for 15 minutes. Remove bread from pan, invert onto rack and cool completely before slicing.
