Banana Bread

Since muffins and breads are the theme for the Sweet Thursday event I'm hosting this week, I decided to post my banana bread recipe so I'd have something to add to my round-up.

I just love banana bread and banana muffins for breakfast or as a snack. Usually I make banana muffins from a mix, because hubby doesn't like banana flavored stuff, and I don't like to spend a lot of time on something that's just for me. But I've been wanting to make homemade banana bread for a while, so I searched around and finally picked out a recipe to try. And it actually didn't take a lot of time to make. It was very good too!

Recipe for Banana Bread

2 cups all-purpose flour
1 teaspoon baking soda
1/4 teaspoon salt
1/2 cup butter
3/4 cup brown sugar
2 eggs, beaten
2 1/3 cups mashed overripe bananas

Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Lightly grease a 9x5 inch loaf pan.
In a large bowl, combine flour, baking soda and salt. In a separate bowl, cream together butter and brown sugar. Stir in eggs and mashed bananas until well blended. Stir banana mixture into flour mixture; stir just to moisten. Pour batter into prepared loaf pan.
Bake in preheated oven for 60 to 65 minutes, or until toothpick comes out clean. Let bread cool in pan for 10 minutes, then remove from pan.
