Homemade Banana Bread in 10 Easy Steps
https://i.imgur.com/IYg07ku.png

I **love** banana bread but never actually tried making it myself.  There is a first time for everything, so here we go.

I looked up a recipe for Banana Bread and went with [this one](https://www.simplyrecipes.com/recipes/banana_bread/) that looked easy to make and ingredients I had on hand.

**SPOILER: It is really freaking good and really easy.**

## Recipe
https://i.imgur.com/2DAxQ0n.jpg

* 2 Bananas
* 1/3 cup melted butter
* 1 teaspoon baking soda
* pinch of salt
* 3/4 cup of sugar
* 1 large egg
* 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
* 1 1/2 cups flour

### Prep

Preheat oven to 350Β° and select two over ripened bananas.

### Step 1 - Mash bananas
https://i.imgur.com/M93FTA5.png

I could have waited another day or two for the bananas to ripen even more.  It would have resulted in a more naturally sweet end result.  This recipe has a lot of sugar so the sweetness of the bananas isn't critical.

Peel the bananas and put them in a large bowl.

Mash them up until you have the consistency you see here.  You don't need a mixer and you don't have to mash them too much, it will develop as you add the rest of the ingredients.

### Step 2 - Add 1/3 cup of butter
https://i.imgur.com/dqsQ6oK.png

You will need to melt the butter in a microwave or pan before adding it.  I prefer to always under heat my butter as it results in a better final product.

This is a good consistency where you can finish the process during the mixing phase.

Mix in the butter so it looks something like this.

### Step 3 - Add 1 teaspoon baking soda & vanilla extract

https://i.imgur.com/aRFDmnu.jpg

This step is pretty easy and not much to it.  Add in the baking soda and vanilla and mix.

### Step 4 - Add 3/4 cup of sugar

https://i.imgur.com/WHxtRiU.jpg

You can add more or less sugar based on your taste.  I found 3/4 cup was perfect, riper bananas you might be able to try less added sugar.

### Step 5 - Add egg

https://i.imgur.com/QdOAAB1.jpg

You are not baking until you cracked some eggs.

https://i.imgur.com/ZhBxyVm.jpg

I wouldn't suggest overmixing, but mix it up until you have a nice smooth consistency.  I still had some minor lumps from the bananas but at this point, they are very smooth.

### Step 6 - Add 1 1/2 cup of flour

https://i.imgur.com/prdnG2l.jpg

We are now at the end of our ingredients list. 

https://i.imgur.com/i3Oy76p.jpg

https://i.imgur.com/OCvady9.jpg

https://i.imgur.com/J8IwQnB.jpg

Give everything a good mix until you have the consistency you see here.  I did all the mixing with a fork and was rather gentle.  I found folding motions helped mix the ingredients well.

### Step 7 - Prepare bread pan

https://i.imgur.com/RhfT5Hj.jpg

I first coat the pan liberally with butter.

https://i.imgur.com/wVuwlH2.jpg

I then add some flour and shake it around until it looks like this.

https://i.imgur.com/TZKJKWp.png

### Step 8 - Pour in mix to pan

https://i.imgur.com/4zWp1QR.png

Just pour what we have into the pan, and use a spatula to ensure you get everything.  You really don't want to miss a drop.

### Step 9 - Bake for 50 minutes

https://i.imgur.com/jyhX1ly.jpg

After around 50 minutes you should be able to poke it with a toothpick and remove it cleanly.  If there is any mix on the toothpick you need to cook it a little longer.

### Step 10 - Enjoy!

https://i.imgur.com/fHMK0fV.png

This is by far the best part.  

https://i.imgur.com/EzQGIzP.png

Feel free to throw some more butter on it, and enjoy it warm.

**PRO TIP: Don't tell anyone you made banana bread or they will eat it.**

Oh no... It's a disease, this banana hoarding! Half our freezer is taken up by blackened bananas... The other half with frozen rhubarb. And we never get to the game part.

Ah OK. Seen that post. That's like a year ago, and just about the time I was finding my footing around here. Man you have a lot of shades. Difficult to slot you some place. Which, by the way, is good! 😊 😊

Woow. I haven't ever eat a banana bread. It looks delicious. Nice shots
But I have a question. Why it's called bread instead of cake?
