Banana Bread

Funny story about this recipe: When my husband and I were dating, we both had mentioned that we had the best banana bread recipe. I was convinced mine had to be better because it really was that good. Well after we got married, I decided I’d test out my recipe on him to see what he thought. Turns out it was the exact same recipe as his! Hahaha. I guess we both really did have the best banana bread recipe ever 🙂

Banana Bread

¾  c butter

1 ½ c sugar

1 ½ c mashed bananas (3)

2 eggs

1 tsp vanilla

2 c flour (I usually use half white and half whole wheat flour)

1 tsp baking soda

¾ tsp salt

Combine dry ingredients. Add the rest of the ingredients. Bake at 300 degrees. 1 hour and 10 minutes for a large loaf, 30-35 minutes for mini loaves.

Our favorite way to bake it? In 9-inch cake rounds. It cooks more evenly this way!  I put the timer on for 35 minutes but after that I just watch it until a toothpick comes out nearly clean. (You want a little moisture but not gooey)
