Best Banana Bread

IMG_1332I hate bananas. Hate as in I can barely peel them for my kids. I hate the smell of them. Just the thought of them makes me gag… but I LOVE LOVE LOVE this banana bread and my kids purposely leave three bananas on the stand to ripen until I make this bread!

The Batter

  • 3 Ripe Bananas
  • 3/4 C. Sugar
  • 1 C. Vegetable Oil
  • 1 Egg
  • 1 1/2 C. All-Purpose Flour
  • 1 1/2 Tsp. Baking Powder
  • 1/4 Tsp. Baking Soda
  • 1/2 Tsp. Cinnamon

In a large bowl mash the bananas with a fork. Add the sugar, oil, and egg. In a separate bowl mix the flour, baking powder, baking soda, and cinnamon. Add the dry ingredients to the wet ingredients and stir until combined.

Grease a medium bread pan and add the batter. Bake at 350 degrees for 55 minutes.

You can add 1/2 C. Chocolate Chips if you choose and its super yummy, but my favorite is the basic banana bread. No nuts, no chocolate, just pure banana bread goodness! I swear this is why bananas were made!
