Why I Love This Recipe

Banana Bread recipes are all basically the same with a few differences. I really LOVE this recipe that I've adapted to make a wonderful treat and use for those over ripe bananas sitting on the counter.

Ingredients You'll Need

3 to 4 ripe bananas, mashed up
1/3 cup butter, melted
3/4 to 1 cup sugar
1 egg, beaten
1 tsp. vanilla extract
1 tsp. baking soda
Pinch of salt
1 1/2 cups all-purpose flour

Optional topping:
3 Tbsp. butter
5 Tbsp. dark brown sugar
2 Tbsp. milk
1/2 cup chopped pecans


Preheat your oven to 350 degrees F. Grease a 4 x 8-inch loaf pan.

Using a wooden spoon, mix the butter into the mashed bananas in a large mixing bowl.

Mix in the sugar, egg and vanilla.

Sprinkle the baking soda and salt over the mixture and mix in well.

Add the flour last; mix. Pour this mixture into prepared loaf pan.

Bake 1 hour in preheated oven. Cool on wire rack. Remove from pan, slice and serve.

Optional topping: Melt the butter in a saucepan. Add the milk and sugar. Cook about 5 minutes until it reaches the consistency of syrup.

Add chopped pecans. Remove from heat. Spread over the bread in the pan. Place under broiler for about a minute or two, watching carefully as not to burn the top. Cool before serving.
