My mother passed along a fantastic banana bread recipe to me and I would love to share it with you today. Here goes:
Two large, overripe bananas (with lots of brown spots on the skin)
1 stick of margarine or butter, softened
2 cups of flour
1/2 cup chopped pecans (if desired)
1/2 cup of sugar
I teaspoon of baking soda
Preheat your oven to 350 degrees
Mash the bananas and set them aside. Cream the butter and add sugar. Beat in the egg. Add the bananas. Add the baking soda and add the flour a little at a time as you mix these ingredients. Mix the ingredients until the flour disappears.
Pour the mixture into a greased and floured loaf pan. Bake 50 minutes.
I hope you enjoy it!
