Quick and easy banana bread recipe

Recipe Background

One of my favorite quick bread recipes is this easy banana bread recipe. It's a great way to use up over-ripe bananas and makes a great snack or breakfast. If you use a stand mixer, you can save your self some time by placing the bananas in the mixing bowl first and letting the mixing paddle mix the bananas for you.

Banana Bread Recipe

Yield: 1 loaf

1 1/2 cups flour
1 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 beaten egg
1 cup granulated sugar
4 Tablespoons melted butter
3 ripe bananas, mashed
1 cup chopped walnuts

Preheat the oven to 325'F. Grease a loaf pan and set it aside. Combine the flour, baking soda, and salt in a medium bowl and set aside as well. Using an electric or stand mixer, mix the egg, sugar and melted butter together. Add the mashed bananas and mix. Add the flour mixture and mix until just combined (don't over mix). Stir in the nuts. Pour batter into the greased loaf pan. Bake at 325'F for approximately 60 minutes or until an inserted toothpick comes out clean. You can also bake the batter in mini muffin tins. These should be filled 2/3 full of batter and baked approximately 20-25 minutes to yield about 45 mini muffins.
