How To Make Banana Bread
Mama's gonna show you how to make banana bread that is moist, delicious and full of flavor!
This is a good way to use up those bananas that are turning brown. If you don't have enough to make bread with, just stick those over ripe bananas in the freezer just like they are...no need to peel them and then when you have enough, just thaw and make your bread.
Here's what you are going to need:
2 cups self-rising flour
4 overripe bananas
1 cup sugar
3/4 cup (1 1/2 sticks) butter, melted and cooled
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1/2 cup pecans, finely chopped
Here's what you need to do:
Heat oven to 350 degrees F. Spray a 9 by 5 inch loaf pan with PAM cooking spray.
Mash 2 bananas with a fork and set aside.
Put the other two bananas along with the sugar into a large mixing bowl.
Using a mixer with a wire whip attachment, whip the two other bananas together with the sugar until it makes a light and fluffy banana cream. This will take several minutes.
Add the melted butter, eggs and vanilla extract. Beat well.
Using a rubber spatula, mix in the flour just until incorporated.
Fold in the nuts and the two mashed bananas.
Pour the batter into the greased loaf pan.
Bake for 1 hour and 15 minutes or a toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean. Let cool for 10 minutes before removing from the pan. Finish cooling on a wire rack.
