[ mmm... banana bread! ]

I'M SURE everyone encounters this at some point - lonely bananas sitting there on the counter acquiring beauty spots but no one wants to go near them? Today was that day in our house and so it's time for my delectable banana bread recipe! The great thing about this recipe is that it's super easy and it uses basic ingredients which you are sure to have on hand. This recipe always turns out (even when i've had to adjust for Irish ovens and ingredients!). enjoy!


lisa's almost famous banana bread

1/2 cup butter or margarine
2 eggs
2 cups flour
1 cup sugar
3 mashed bananas
1/2 tsp. baking soda
1 1/2 tsp. baking powder
1 tsp. vanilla
salt sprinkle 

1. Heat oven to 325-350 F. Combine mashed bananas and eggs in a large bowl. In a smaller bowl, cream together butter and sugar and add to banana mixture. Add vanilla. Add in dry ingredients and beat with mixer on low. Pour into a greased and floured loaf pan. Bake for 50 min. to 1 hour. Check for doneness with a toothpick - it's ready when it comes out clean. Eat!
