Here you go, suckers.
- 3-4 very ripe bananas, peeled
- 1/3 c melted butter
- 1 c sugar
- 1 egg, lightly beaten
- 1 tsp vanilla extract
- 1 tsp baking soda
- pinch salt
- 1 1/2 c flour
Mash up the bananas in a large bowl with a fork.
(When I was in Belize I rode a horse named Banana. This was Banana:
Clearly not the same thing.)
Stir in the melted butter.
Stir in the sugar.
Stir in the egg, lightly beaten.
Stir in the vanilla.
Stir in the baking soda (and fine, the pinch of salt, too).
Stir in the flour...
...Until just combined.
Pour into a loaf pan sprayed with cooking spray.
And bake for one to one-and-a-half hours, until a toothpick inserted in the middle of the loaf comes out clean.
Let it cool for a while on a wire rack and then slice into perfectly even slices.
Or just cram it into your gaping maw by the fistful. Whatever floats your boat, suckers.
