I double this recipe, and pour into a 9 x 13 pan instead..
* 3 or 4 ripe bananas, smashed
* 1/3 cup melted butter
* 1 cup sugar (can easily reduce to 3/4 cup)
* 1 egg, beaten
* 1 teaspoon vanilla
* 1 teaspoon baking soda
* Pinch of salt
* 1 1/2 cups of all-purpose flour
and a handful of Craisins!!
Preheat the oven to 350°F (175°C). With a wooden spoon, mix butter into the mashed bananas in a large mixing bowl. Mix in the sugar, egg, and vanilla. Sprinkle the baking soda and salt over the mixture and put the mixer in. Add the flour last, mix at high speed until it's velvety. Add a handful of Craisins and hand-stir them in. Pour mixture into a buttered loaf pan. Bake until golden. Cool on a rack. Remove from pan and slice to serve. We like cream cheese on ours!! :)
