Nana’s Banana Bread

Though I’m not a fan of bananas or banana bread, my husband loves his Nana’s banana bread recipe. This summer, when we had some bananas that were ripe enough, we baked a loaf. It wasn’t gluten free, so I didn’t try it, but my husband, Cara, and her husband all approved.It’s a really easy recipe, just throw the ingredients together and bake!

Bread Ingredients:

1 stick butter, softened

1 cup sugar

2 eggs

2-3 ripe bananas

1 1/4 cup flour

1 tsp baking soda

1 tsp vanilla

Streusel Topping:

2 Tbsp butter

4 Tbsp brown sugar

2 Tbsp. flour

1 tsp cinnamon

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. In your mixing bowl, soften the butter and cream it together with the sugar. Mix in lightly beaten eggs. In a separate bowl, mash bananas with a fork.

Once they’re a gross mushy mess, add them to your mixture. Mix in flour, baking soda, and vanilla until well-blended. Pour into a greased loaf pan. Chop together the streusel ingredients and sprinkle on top. Bake for 1 hour, checking at 50 minutes. The bread’s done when a toothpick comes out clean.
