The Best Banana Bread. EVER

This week has been a bit crazy in our household so the idea of having a glass of wine and baking alone in the kitchen sounded very appealing last night. I had bananas that needed to be used up so I decided on banana bread. Added bonus:  yummy breakfast this morning! Did I mention it is virtually impossible to mess this up? Super easy recipe to follow. Easy ingredients and easy directions. Give it a try!

The ingredients:

Three over-ripe bananas
1 1/2 cups all purpose flour
1 cup white sugar
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 egg
1/4 cup butter
1 or 2 handfuls of chocolate chips, walnuts, cranberries...whatever YOU want (I used choc chips this time)

Preheat the oven to 325

Mash bananas

Add flour, sugar, baking soda, salt and the egg
Melt the butter

Add the butter to the mixture and stir until blended
Mix in the choc chips, walnuts, etc

Pour into greased loaf pan
Bake for 70 minutes

ENJOY your delicious bread 
I told you it was easy!

PS. This baking/cooking thing and taking pictures at the same time of every. single. step is HARD. I inevitably forget to take a picture or two. Thank goodness I'm not a food blogger...I'd be no good :)
