Banana Bread

The weather is turning cooler here and it’s truly beginning to feel a little more like fall.  My cooking is reflecting that too.  We’ve had soup and chili in the past week and I’ve been making more of the hearty comfort foods.  It had been awhile since I made banana bread and there were bananas that needed to be used so today was the day.

I pulled out my old stand by recipe.  It’s a very no frills recipe.


Mix together:
4 smashed bananas
1/3 cup vegetable oil
3/4 cup sugar
1 teaspoon baking SODA
1 teaspoon vanilla
1 1/2 cup flour

Put in a greased bread pan and bake at 350 for 50-55 minutes.  I doubled this recipe to make two loaves.

That’s about as no frills as a recipe can get but I really love it.  In fact I ended up just having it and watermelon for lunch.

Over lunch Hubby and I were talking.  I commented at how good this banana bread is even though the recipe is so basic.  Both of us agree…we don’t like fancy foods with lots of ingredients.  We like our pork chops just as plain pork chops with a little seasoning.  We don’t care for them baked up in a casserole type dish.  Plain hearty food is our preference…I am so glad he likse to eat the way that I do and I like to cook in that style too.
