Banana is my favorite fruit. This easy banana bread recipe is what I find to be the best way to enjoy my favorite fruit. This is mom’s tried and tested recipe that she has over the years brushed up over and over again to suit our tastes. A simple and easy way to a great tasting tea time snack.
  All purpose flour 1 1⁄4 Cup (20 tbs)
  Sugar 1 Cup (16 tbs)
  Ripe bananas 3
  Melted butter 1⁄3 Cup (5.33 tbs)
  Egg 1
  Baking soda 1 Teaspoon
  Vanilla extract 4 Drop
  Powdered cinnamon 1 Pinch

Take a big mixing bowl and add in the bananas. Mash them well. Now add in the butter and sugar and beat well. Add the egg. Beat. Now add in the vanilla extract, cinnamon powder and baking soda. Mix well. Slowly fold in the all-purpose flour little by little. Pour the mixture into a pre-greased tin and bake in a pre-heated oven (at 350 degrees) for 45 minutes to an hour or till done. When pricked with a fork it must come clean and you know that your easy banana bread is done perfectly. You could even add to it a handful of chocolate chips. Bananas and chocolates make a wonderful combination.
