banana bread

Haha I haven't been quilting that much as of late but I have been cooking a lot more.

I didn't know banana bread was so easy to make.

I followed this recipe :

Janine's Best Banana Bread


* 1/4 cup butter, softened
* 1 cup white sugar
* 1 egg
* 3 ripe bananas, mashed
* 2 cups all-purpose flour
* 1 teaspoon baking soda
* 1/2 teaspoon salt


1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Lightly grease an 8x4 inch loaf pan.
2. In a large bowl, cream together butter and sugar. Beat in the egg and mashed bananas. Mix in flour and baking soda just until combined. Pour into prepared loaf pan.
3. Bake in preheated oven for 1 hour. If top begins to brown too quickly, decrease heat slightly. Center should be soft and chewy, while t
he outside, crisp and crunchy.


It was a lot better than I expected it to be. I mean when it was in the oven it already smelt really really good. I wanted to eat it before it was even ready!

Anyways here's a picture of it

It was super yummy!
