Because we had some extra old bananas lying around (thank you Cody), I decided to whip up some of my grandmother, Nonnie's, famous banana bread. Well, at least famous to everyone in Wichita Falls, Texas.
Hope you try it out someday. Stone and I had it for dinner and breakfast if that tells you anything about this delicious loaf.
3 bananas, mashed
1 tsp. baking soda
1 1/2 c. sugar
2 sticks butter
1 tbsp. vanilla
2 c. flour
1 c. chopped nuts (optional)
Set Oven to 325 degrees.
first mash the bananas and mix in baking soda. let stand.
cream sugar and butter (yes, lots of sugar and a TON of butter, how could this not taste good?) together and beat in eggs, one at a time.
next, add the vanilla and mix in the bananas, blending all the ingredients together.
last comes the flour. (Nonnie's recipe calls for "sifted" flour, if "sifting" is something you do then have at it, i just don't)
after the flour is completely mixed in well, pour the mixture into a greased and floured loaf pan leaving a little room on top the bread to grow in the oven.
depending on size of pan, the batter can make 2 loaves.
Bake for 1 hour-ish.
