My Banana Bread Recipe

Hey all! Tonight I decided to NOT let my TEN very ripe bananas go to waste and I actually made 4 batches of banana bread. Now, I don't ever want to brag, but I really don't know of anyone who doesn't like my banana bread. ;) I am always getting compliments on it.

The recipe is really simple and so, so good! :)

The Ingredients:

1 cup of sugar
1/3 cup of margarine/butter; softened
2 eggs
1&1/2 cups mashed ripe bananas (3-4 medium)
1/3 cup of water
1&2/3 cups of all-purpose flour
1 teaspoon of baking soda
1/2 teaspoon of salt
1/4 teaspoon of baking powder
****Now as a special note I also add vanilla and cinnamon, but I don't measure them.****
- heat oven to 350*
- grease bottom of loaf pan(s)
- mix sugar and margarine/butter in a 2&1/2 quart bowl
- stir in eggs until blended
- add bananas and water
- stir in remaining ingredients
- pour into pan
- bake for 60-75 minutes (cooking times may vary depending what kind of loaf pan you use. a good rule of thumb is to bake until a toothpick that is inserted into the middle of the loaf comes out clean.

Thanks for reading and I hope you enjoy! :)
