Ingredients

2 cups unbleached all-purpose flour, plus more for dusting pan
3/4 cup sugar
3/4 tsp baking soda
1/2 tsp salt
3 very ripe, darkly speckled large bananas, mashed well
1/4 cup plain yogurt
2 large eggs, beaten lightly
6 tbl (3/4 stick) unsalted butter, melted and cooled
1 tsp vanilla


Adjust an oven rack to the lower-middle position and heat the oven to 350 degrees.


Grease the bottom and sides of a 9 by 5 inch loaf pan; dust with flour, tapping out excess.


Combine the flour, sugar, salt baking soda in a large bowl with a whisk.


Mix the mashed bananas, yogurt, eggs, butter and vanilla with a wooden spoon in a medium bowl.


Lightly fold the banana mixture into the dry ingredients with a rubber spatula until just combined and the batter looks thick and chunky.


Scrape the batter into the prepared loaf pan.


Bake until the loaf is golden brown and a toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean, about 55 minutes.


Cool in the pan for 5 minutes, then transfer to a wire rack.
