Lately I have been running like a chicken with my head chopped off. Pretty visual, I know. So not much has been getting cranked out of my kitchen lately. That needs to change, pronto! In one of my “dash to the grocery store to pick up stuff” moments, I grabbed a bunch of bananas not realizing that there were already a bunch sitting on the kitchen counter. Oops. When life hands you bananas….oh you already know what I’m going to say. Anyway, I decided to make some Banana Bread. This recipe is incredibly easy. One bowl…that’s it. Just put all of the ingredients in, give it a good stir to incorporate and then you’re off to the races. This bread is a little more dense than recipes where you cream the butter and a lot more banana-y (is that a word) than ones that call for only 2 or 3, but it’s still a really great bread and you can’t beat the ease. I would offer a pictorial here, but…..why? The end product is far more interesting than a shot of my bowl with the ingredients. Right? Enjoy!
One Bowl Banana Bread
4 ripe bananas
1/4 cup melted butter
1/2 cup Splenda (or 3/4 cup white sugar)
1 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
1/4 teaspoon salt
- Preheat oven to 350. Butter a loaf pan and set aside.
- In a large bowl add ALL ingredients. Using a wooden spoon, beat to just combine. Pour into prepared loaf pan.
- Bake for 55-60 minutes or until a toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean. Cool for 20 minutes and then remove from the loaf pan and cool on a rack.
How’s that for easy? 1 bowl of banana bread love.
