McLinky Blog Hop Favorite Recipe - Best Banana Bread


2 cups all-purpose flour
1 teaspoon baking soda
1/4 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon cinnamon
1/2 cup butter
3/4 cup brown sugar
1 teaspoon vanilla
2 eggs, beaten
2 1/3 cups mashed overripe bananas

Alterations: Add 1 cup chocolate chips for banana chocolate chip bread. For low fat version replace butter with applesauce.

Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Lightly grease a 9x5 inch loaf pan.
In a large bowl, combine flour, baking soda, cinnamon and salt. In a separate bowl, cream together butter and brown sugar. Stir in eggs, vanilla and mashed bananas until well blended. Stir banana mixture into flour mixture; stir just to moisten. Pour batter into prepared loaf pan.
Bake in preheated oven for 60 to 65 minutes, until a toothpick inserted into center of the loaf comes out clean. Let bread cool in pan for 10 minutes, then turn out onto a wire rack.
