Yes. In any case, here we are! Everyone loves Banana Bread.
Best Banana Bread
1 Cup Sugar
½ Cup Vegetable Oil
1½ tsp Vanilla Extract
1 Cup mashed ripe Banana
2 Cup All-Purpose Flour
1 tsp Baking Soda
½ tsp Baking Powder
Preheat oven to 350°F. Grease a 9in x 5in loaf pan. In a large bowl, combine sugar, eggs and oil. Mix well. Add vanilla extract. Mix in bananas. In a seperate bowl, combine flour, baking powder, baking soda and salt. Add a third at a time to the wet batter, mixing well after each addition. The batter will be very thick. Pour into the greased loaf pan and bake for 50 - 60 minutes or until a toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean. Remove from the pan and cool on a wire rack.
This is really awesome with a cup of Chocolate Chips thrown in. I've even made it more of a tropical loaf by adding a cup of coconut!
The original recipe only called for a ½ tsp of Vanilla...to which I said HA! Not to mention having magickal properties or comforting and security, vanilla is just plain awesome.
