Here is the scrumptious banana bread I made Saturday. The recipe is as follows:
1 cup granulated sugar
8 TBSP. (1 stick) butter/maragarine, room temperature
2 large eggs
3 ripe bananas
1 TBSP. milk
1 tsp. ground cinnamon
2 cups all-purpose flour
1 tsp. baking powder
1 tsp. baking soda
1 tsp. salt ( I did not add this)
Preheat oven to 325 degrees F. Butter a 9x5x3 inch loaf ban.
Cream the sugar & butter in a large mixing bowl until light & fluffy. Add the eggs one at a time, beating well after each addition.
In a small bowl, mash the bananas with a fork. Mix in the milk & cinnamon. In another bowl, mix together the flour, baking powder, baking soda & salt.
Add the banana mixture to the creamed mixture & stir until combined. Add dry ingredients, mixing just until flour disappears.
Pour batter into prepared pan & bake 1 hour to 1 hour 10 minutes, until a toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean. Set aside to cool on a rack for 15 minutes. Remove bread from pan, invert onto rack & cool completely before slicing.
Spread with honey or serve with ice cream.
