our favorite banana bread

I've probably posted this recipe before, but after baking my third loaf this week, I thought it was worthy of a repost. It is sweet and soft and just exactly what a banana bread should be.

Banana Bread
makes one loaf

2 1/2 cups flour, or 11.9 oz
3/4 to 1 cup sugar, depending on how ripe your bananas are
3 1/2 teaspoons baking powder
1 teaspoon salt
3 tablespoons melted butter
3/4 cup milk
1 egg
2-3 ripe bananas

Preheat your oven to 350 degrees and grease your pan. Sift flour, baking powder, and salt; set aside. Mash the bananas, then mix in the sugar, milk, and egg. Add dry ingredients and mix until combined. Bake for 45-50 minutes, or until a toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean.

One loaf doesn't last a day at our house. It is one of our favorite after school treats.

  7. Is the melted butter for greasing the pan or do you add to the batter?
