Banana Bread for the Holidays... Revisited

Sorry kids. I can't send a loaf of Banana bread to each and every one of you, so I'll share the basic recipe with you. It's extremely easy.

1 cup sugar (brown sugar is okay)
1 stick of butter
2 large eggs
3 ripe bananas
1 tablespoon milk
1 teaspoon cinnamon
2 cups all purpose flour
1 teaspoon baking powder
1 teaspoon baking soda
1 teaspoon salt

Preheat the oven to 350 degrees. Butter a loaf pan (I prefer glass pans)

Cream the sugar and butter in a large mixing bowl until fluffy. Add the eggs, beating well.

In smaller bowl, mash the bananas. Mix in the milk and cinnamon (can add nutmeg, also). Add this to the creamed mixture above until combined.

Add the baking powder, baking soda and salt to the two cups of flour. Mix this into the rest of the ingredients until the flour is disappeared.

Pour batter into prepared pan and bake 1 hour, using the toothpick test to determine if it is done. Set aside to cool for 15 minutes. Remove bread from pan, and cool completly before slicing.

You can adjust this recipe to taste, by adding vanilla extract (not much!!), walnuts and or macadamia nuts, Amaretto, or all of the above.

I have.
