How To Make Banana Bread

Steps: 5

1. Preheat the oven to 350°F (175°C), and butter a 4×8-inch loaf pan.

2. In a mixing bowl, mash the ripe bananas with a fork until smooth. Stir the melted butter into the mashed bananas.

3. Mix in the baking soda and salt. Stir in the sugar, beaten egg, and vanilla extract. Mix in the flour.

4. Pour the batter into your prepared loaf pan. Bake for 1 hour to 1 hour 10 minutes (check at 50 minutes) at 350°F (175°C), or until a tester inserted into the center comes out clean.

5. Remove from oven and cool completely on a rack. Remove the banana bread from the pan. Slice and serve (A bread knife helps to make slices that aren’t crumbly).
