If there was one skill that I had to identify,
something that I have completely mastered
(besides real estate of course 🙂 )
that I am absolutely 100% confident in,
it would have to be the careful nurturing
of the exquisitely slightly mushy dark brown banana.
My friends from far and wide are always astonished at my skill when admiring our family’s fruit bowl. I would not feel right going any further, however, if I didn’t acknowledge my Mom with a big “shout out” and “thank you” for consistently demonstrating her specialized technique throughout my childhood of buying more bananas than we could eat then patiently ignoring the few remaining fruits until they were almost unrecognizable. So, “Thank You Mom!!” because now I too am an expert which means I am almost always prepared to make this delicious and super easy one-bowl banana bread recipe… hope you enjoy!
Super Easy Banana Bread
1 1/4 cups flour
3/4 cup sugar (can be reduced to 1/2 cup)
3/4 tsp. baking powder
3/4 tsp. baking soda
1/2 tsp. salt
1/3 cup chopped walnuts (optional)
1/2 cup mashed ripe bananas
(I like mine really brown :), 1-2 bananas)
1/2 cup buttermilk
(can be made with 2 tsp vinegar and 1/2 cup milk)
1/3 cup vegetable oil
(can replace all or half with applesauce)
1/2 cup chocolate chips
(I guess those are optional but who wouldn’t add chocolate chips??)
Preheat over to 350 degrees. Add dry ingredients to a bowl and give a quick mix to combine. Then add banana, buttermilk, oil, and egg and mix thoroughly. Add in chocolate chips and/or walnuts if desired. Pour into greased and floured bread pan. Bake for approximately 45 minutes. I typically double the recipe and bake in a bundt pan for approximately an hour (until springs back to touch and tooth pick comes out clean).
Let cool and enjoy!!!
