Every time there is a party or any type of gathering, I’m asked to bring a loaf of my homemade banana bread. It’s always the first to go and I’m always jotting down the recipe afterwards for friends. It’s simple, quick and delicious!
- ¼ cup butter, softened
- 1 cup white sugar
- 1 egg
- , mashed
- 2 cups all-purpose flour
- 1 teaspoon baking soda
- ½ teaspoon salt
Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Lightly grease an 8×4 inch loaf pan.
In a large bowl, cream together butter and sugar. Beat in the egg and mashed bananas. Mix in flour, baking soda and salt just until combined. Pour into prepared loaf pan.
Bake in preheated oven for 1 hour. If top begins to brown too quickly, decrease heat slightly. Center should be soft and chewy, while the outside, crisp and crunchy.
