Banana Bread Great Grandma Hale
2 ripe bananas
1 stick butter
1/2 cup sugar
2 cups flour
1 tsp baking powder
1 heaping tsp baking soda
This is seriously simple folks. First, preheat your oven to 350 degrees. Grab a large bowl (or your handy mixer) and add the bananas, butter, sugar and eggs. Beat until well mixed. Then add the flour, baking powder & baking soda. Beat again for a few minutes. Butter & flour two small bread pans and pour the batter evenly into them. Bake for 25-35 minutes depending on your oven. They're done when they spring back a bit when touched.
Here's the secret... take them straight out of the pans and wrap them up in plastic wrap. It keeps the bread nice and moist! You should also spread each slice with some butter... it's goooood.
Well we couldn't run poor Grandma's Banana Bread into the ground could we? (Not that it's really possible to do that.) But being me, I decided to change it up a bit...
Banana Nut Muffins
1 cup chopped pecans (YUM!)
1 tsp cinnamon
Pour batter into 24 muffins cups and bake at 350 for 20 minutes. Enjoy!
