BANANA BREAD

  1. I've tried dozens of recipes and I always come back to this one. It is simple and delicious!
  2. I rarely measure when I cook, but when you bake, it's a must!
  3. 1 1/2 cups AP flour, 1 teaspoon baking soda, large pinch of sea salt.
    Sift dry ingredients together.
  4. Put 4-5 medium-sized, overripe bananas in a food processor. Add 1 Tablespoon of pure vanilla extract, 1 cup of granulated sugar and 4 Tablespoons of softened butter or coconut oil.
    I use 2 Tablespoons of each. (And sometimes I use large bananas!)
  5. Purée until completely smooth. Add 1 egg and pulse until mixed well.
  6. ~THIS IS IMPORTANT~
    Add dry ingredients to the processor and pulse ONLY UNTIL IT IS BARELY COMBINED.
  7. This ensures it stays moist and isn't overworked.
  8. You can add toasted walnuts and/or chocolate chips, at this point.
    I don't actually measure this part! Maybe, a heaping half cup..?
  9. Use rubber spatula to combine. Again, be gentle!
  10. Pour into a buttered (or sprayed) loaf pan.
    I suggest you invest in a nice, stoneware, say Pampered Chef's..
  11. Bake at 350° for 65 minutes.
    Let cool on a rack.
