Easier Banana Bread

This recipe is less work, less ingredients, and just as delicious. Courtesy of Heidi Bakes*. Topped with Streusel*.

1) Preheat oven to 350.
2) Butter or spray one bread loaf pan. Try putting a rectangle of baking parchment on the bottom of the sprayed pan, and spraying the parchment. Makes the bread slide out easier after it's baked.
3) Combine ingredients in the following order:
  • 5 or 6 over-ripe bananas, smashed
  • 2/3 cup melted butter
  • 1 1/2 cups granulated sugar
  • 2 eggs
  • 2 tsp vanilla
  • 2 tsp baking soda
  • dash of salt
  • 3 cups cups flour
4) Pour into loaf pan.
5) Add streusel if it fits your fancy.
6) Bake for an hour. This bread rises a lot, so be sure it has plenty of room to rise in the oven. Mine got a little caught in the rack above it.
7) Put in an airtight container or bag. Freeze if you won't eat it within 3 days.
