Sometimes you have to go back to the classics, and that’s just what this banana bread does. Say you bought some bananas for $.19 at Trader Joe’s last weekend and didn’t have a chance to eat them, but don’t want to waste them, (ahem, yes, I’m speaking from experience) then this is perfect recipe to use them up.
- 1/2 cup sugar
- 1 1/5 cups of flour
- 1 tsp baking soda
- Dash of salt
- 3 bananas, mashed
- 1/3 cup butter, softened
- 1 medium egg
- 1/2 cup roughly chopped walnuts
Preheat your oven to 350 and grease a bread pan. In a mixer, whisk together the sugar, flour, baking soda and salt. Add in the bananas, butter, and egg. Continue to whisk until fully combined into a batter. Fold in the walnuts, and pour in to the bread pan.
Bake for 1 hour and 10 minutes. A toothpick should come out clean when inserted in the middle. Let cool for a couple of minutes before digging in.
Happy Eating, XO.
