Banana Bread

Banana bread is easy and quick to make, and it makes a great breakfast or a snack. I could really go for some banana bread now, I wish I had some left.

  • 3 or 4 ripe bananas, smashed
  • 1/3 cup melted butter
  • 3/4 cup sugar
  • 1 egg, beaten
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • Pinch of salt
  • 1 1/2 cups of all-purpose flour
  • 3/4 cup crushed walnuts

Preheat the oven to 350F (175C). Mix all the ingredients together and pour into a greased loaf pan. Bake for 1 hour. Test with a toothpick to see if the loaf is done. If the dough sticks to the toothpick, let it cook a while longer.
