Banana Bread Recipe

Hi guys! Thanks for visiting our banana bread recipe site. We have to admit straight from the start, we are not the most experienced cooks or bakers out there, and we like our recipes to be simple. So simple that anyone can use them. And to be honest banana bread is one of the most simple and delicious thing you can make at home. It's so easy we made an ass kickin' banana bread the first time we tried it. Now we collected a few banana bread recipes with different twists so everyone can find something for his taste.

But enough introduction, we think it is time for us to present you with first simple banana bread recipe. We want to get you started as soon as possible :)!

Alright, For This Banana Bread Recipe You Will Need:

- 4-5 mashed bananas (use ripe ones)
- 2 cups all purpose flour
- 1 cup sugar (or less if you can't see your toes)
- 2 large eggs
- 1/2 cup shortening or vegetable oil
- 1 teaspoon baking powder
- 1/2 teaspoon salt
- 1 teaspoon vanilla

So nothing really special and hard to get, you see :)? First thing you need to do when you try to bake things is - turn on your oven and set it to 350 F (180C). Oh, you will also need a loaf pan or some similar dish to bake your banana bread and now it is also a good time to grease it, so your banana bread doesn't stick.

Now let's get started. We need a large bowl and then we start mixing some things in the bowl. First we add sugar, shortening (or oil), and eggs and then we start mixing so the sugar melts. Then we add mashed bananas and mix some more. When it looks good (don't worry, we are sure it does) it is time to add all the dry ingredients - flour, salt, vanilla, and baking powder and mix some more. You should get a nice and very thick banana bread batter.

That's it! What, nothing else you ask? We said we liked our recipes to be short and simple. Well there is one more thing actually - we must tell you for how long you should bake your banana bread. This recipe and most of other banana bread recipes will tell you to bake your banana bread for around one hour. And one hour it is :).

You can check if it's done already by sticking a toothpick or a knife or something (not your fingers) in you banana bread and if it comes out clean (not all sticky and dirty with batter), you are finished.

We hope you enjoyed this banana bread recipe, if you did (or if you didn't :) ) there are plenty of others on this site.
