I don't know about you but I seem to buy
too many bananas and I don't eat them fast
enough and then they start to get a few brown spots and then I don't really want to eat them.

So the only thing left to do is make banana
bread!!!!! I make this probably once a month
and send it off with my husband to his office
and he claims it is devoured within minutes.
Many of his co-workers have asked for this recipe.

Super simple and delicious. If you like nuts
in your banana bread..simply add to the
mixture after if is fully combined.


2 cups bananas mashed with a fork
3 eggs
1 cup canola oil
1 tsp vanilla
2 cups flour
1 cup granulated sugar
1 tsp baking soda
1/4 tsp salt

Combine the first four ingredients in a mixing bowl. In a separate bowl combine last four ingredients. You know the rule in baking is always to have a bowl for wet ingredients and one for dry. Using a mixer, combine dry ingredients into wet ingredients. Mix until combined, but bananas can still be a bit chunky.

Pour into greased 9 x 5 loaf pan. Cook at 350 degrees for 50 minutes. If you prefer muffins, grease a muffin tin and fill with mixture and cook at 350 for about 25 minutes. Always check for doneness by using a toothpick or fork. Place the toothpick or fork in the deepest part of the loaf and if it comes out clean then it is done. Cool on a rack. My favorite way to enjoy this bread is to slather a slice with cream cheese....yummy.
