It’s quick, it’s easy and, with only 9 ingredients, you really can’t mess it up.

Ohhh- this delight is best served warm with a pat of butter on top.

Vanilla Banana Bread

  • 1 cup of sugar
  • 1 stick of softened butter
  • 2 eggs
  • 4 mashed bananas (very ripe)
  • 2 cups of flour
  • 1 teaspoon of baking soda
  • 1 tablespoon of vanilla
  1. Cream butter, sugar, and vanilla.
  2. Add eggs and mashed bananas.
  3. Mix in remaining ingredients.
  4. Pour in a 9×13 grated pan and bake at 325 degrees for 30-40 minutes.

This recipe works best with really ripe bananas, so when I’m planning to make this recipe, I’ll buy a few extra bananas on my grocery store run the week before to give them time to go soft.

Best served with a pat of butter on top.
