This recipe is my stand-by. It so good, and it always comes out so well. It's just your basic banana bread recipe, but it tastes so homey and just makes you happy. Does anyone else equate tastes and smells to places and feelings? I'm sure we all do it. For me, this is what home should smell like. I made this loaf for a friend.
3 or 4 ripe bananas, mashed
1/3 cup melted butter
1 cup sugar
1 tsp vanilla
1 egg, beaten
1 1/2 cups self-rising flour (I never have self rising, you can just use 1 1/2 tsp baking powder and 1/2 teaspoon salt for every cup to make self rising)
Mix butter into mashed bananas, add sugar, egg and vanilla. Add flour last. Mix well.
Pour in greased loaf pan. Bake at 350 for about 45 minutes.
It's best with whole wheat, but I didn't have any ground. White works well too.
