Bananas about Banana Bread!

Oh dear sweet baking blog, I know it's been many-a-week since I've posted. You must think me bananas! But I've been rubbing elbows with the flour and the sugar. I swear, I'm still friendly with the fruits and nuts.

So right...back to the blogging thing...

Banana bread was the first baked good I ever made my long-haired long-term boyfriend. And he has been sweet on my baking ever since. So occasionally I have to go back to a classic. So for all the pretty ladies out there who want to drive their boyfriend bananas, it's time to start baking something in the oven. (I'm talking about bread here, people, not babies).

Banana Bread
(makes one loaf)

1 cup sugar
1/2 cup butter
2 eggs2 cups flour
1 teaspoon baking soda
3 ripe bananas

1) Preheat oven at 325 degrees.
2) Mix together sugar, butter, eggs, flour, soda, and bananas.
3) Pour banana bread batter into a greased and floured pan.
4) Bake at 325 degrees for 1 hour and 15 minutes.

Did you say you wanted nuts in your banana bread? Gross. I like my banana bread pure! (But I suppose if you're nutty could add some.)


  1. Banana bread was the first thing I ever made my boyfriend...almost a year later he still asks me to make it for him. :-D

  2. I'm going to have to make this! I love that you don't put nuts in yours. My grandmother does and hubby is allergic. : p
