Use Your New Kitchen – Easy Banana Bread
This week we add to our Use Your New Kitchen series with this easy to make Banana Bread. This recipe is a family favorite and has a special ingredient that makes it extra tasty and unique.
1/2 cup unsalted butter
melted and cooled slightly
2/3 cup light brown sugar, lightly packed
(make sure it is fresh and soft)
2 large eggs
2 scant cups mashed very ripe bananas
about 3-4 bananas
2 teaspoons pure vanilla extract
1 3/4 cups all purpose flour
1 teaspoon baking soda
1/4 teaspoon salt
1/4 – 1/3 cup brown sugar (or more, if desired)
1. Preheat oven to 350°F.
2. In a large bowl, whisk melted butter and 2⁄3 cup brown sugar until well combined, about 1 minute. Add eggs, mashed banana and vanilla, whisking until combined.
3. In a separate bowl, combine the flour, baking soda and salt. Add dry ingredients to the wet
ingredients, using a rubber spatula, lightly stir the batter until no streaks of flour remain. Be careful not to over mix.
4. Grease a 9×9 square baking pan and add the batter to the pan. Smooth into an even layer.
Sprinkle the top of the batter with 1⁄4 cup (or more) brown sugar.
Bake for 20-25 minutes, rotating once during the bake time.
The bread is done when a toothpick inserted into the
center comes out clean. Place on a wire rack to cool.
