Banana Bread Directions:
Step 1: Preheat Oven
Preheat your oven to 350 F.
Step 2: Grease a Loaf Pan
Grease your loaf pans with butter, oil or cooking spray – whatever your preference.
Step 3: Mash Bananas
In a large mixing bowl, mash the bananas with a fork until mushy.
Step 4: Melt Butter or Margarine
Melt the unsalted butter or margarine in a small saucepan.
Step 5: Combine Wet Ingredients and Sugar
Add butter, sugar, eggs and vanilla to the bowl with the mashed bananas
Mix until well combined.
Step 6: Mix Dry Ingredients
In a medium mixing bowl, combine the dry ingredients including flour, baking soda and salt.
Step 7: Combine Ingredients
Add the dry ingredients to the wet. Stir until well combined.
Step 8: Get Ready to Bake
Divide batter into loaf pans and place in 350 F oven for about 50 minutes to 1 hour. Check if the loaf is done by inserting a toothpick in the center. If it comes out clean, it’s done.
Allow the banana bread to cool completely, slice and serve. If you don’t need 2 loaves, you can freeze one. Just wrap it tightly in saran wrap, place into a air-tight container and save it for when you need it.
