When life gives you Bananas……

Walking into the kitchen this morning I noticed the bananas on the counter were getting to the over-ripe point. When this happens the best thing to do is make banana bread. This is a recipe I have used forever, tweaking an old recipe that my mom used I came up with this one and have stuck with it. Always comes out great.


1 cup Sugar

1 stick unsalted Butter

2 Large Eggs

3 Ripe Bananas

1 Tablespoon Milk

1 teaspoon Cinnamon

2 Cups A. P. Flour

1 teaspoon Baking Powder

1 teaspoon Baking Soda

1 teaspoon Salt

Pre-heat your oven to 325 degrees F, grease a 9”x5”x3” loaf pan. In one bowl cream the butter and sugar together, then add the eggs one at a time, until well incorporated. In another bowl mash the bananas along with the milk and the cinnamon. In another bowl combine the dry ingredients and mix together well. Add the banana mixture into the butter sugar and egg mixture and mix well. Now add the dry ingredients and mix just until the flour is not visible. Pour this into your loaf pan and level it out by tapping it on the counter a couple times. Place into your pre-heated oven and bake for about an hour. Remove from oven let cool in pan for about 15 minutes and then remove from the pan and place on a rack to finish cooling. Slice it off and eat it as is or top with butter, cream cheese, or whatever your preference. It goes pretty good with ice cream as well.
