Another aspect of my blog that I would like to share with you is some yummy recipes that I have come by. Because who doesn’t enjoy food, right? Becoming a wife brought several new responsibilities for me, one of them being meals. Meal preparation, grocery shopping, and of course the making of the meal. For awhile I was very excited about this, but in all honesty it got old a little too quickly. I have always loved to bake. Growing up, I would dedicate many Saturday mornings to my mother’s kitchen aid. Through the craziness of school and work, those times in the warmth of my mother’s kitchen provided good therapy.
I still love to bake, but I have also learned to love to cook. We have several favorites that will make an appearance later on. Today, though, I wanted to share a timeless classic….Banana Bread.
This Banana Bread recipe is one that was passed on to me from my mother from her mother and I’m sure that continues up the line. I am sure that many of you reading this may already have a good recipe for Banana Bread that you have perfected or maybe you have one that you haven’t tried. But just in case, here is one of our all time favorites. And the best part is, it’s EASY.
- 3/4 cup sugar
- 2 T butter
- 1 egg
- 2 cups of flour
- 1 tsp baking soda
- 1 tsp baking powder
- 1/ tsp salt
- 3-5 mashed bananas (it helps when they are slightly brown….or thawed, frozen bananas)
- chocolate chips (optional)
- walnuts/pecans (optional)
Mix together sugar, butter, egg, flour, baking soda, baking powder, and salt. Add bananas one at a time mixing well after each banana. Add chocolate chips and nuts (optional). Grease one bread pan or 3 small bread pans. Bake at 350 degrees for 45 minutes.
