House Works: Banana Bread Recipe

Sometimes you just want to bake something in the oven that the entire family will enjoy. Banana bread is a great option. And it's a good way to get rid of all those ripe bananas on the counter. In House Works, we are getting a recipe for banana bread from a special guest.

Preheat oven to 350

1 ¾ cups flour

1 ¼ tsp baking powder

½ tsp baking soda

1/3 cup butter

2/3 cup sugar

2 beaten eggs

1 cup smooshed bananas (approximately 3-4 bananas - the softer and smooshier the better)

Optional additions:

½ semi sweet mini chocolate chips

½- 1 cup of pecans or walnuts

Smoosh together butter, sugar and bananas. Add eggs. Mix well.

In a separate bowl, mix together flour, baking soda and baking powder.

Ad this to the banana mixture and stir thoroughly.

Pour into a 5X9 greased and floured loaf pan.

Bake 50-60 minutes, until a small skewer comes out clean.

Slice, serve and enjoy.
