Easy Banana Bread

| banana, bread and pretzels, recipes

I’ve had 5 super duper ripe bananas sitting on my counter for the last week just waiting for me to have time to use them in bread.  It’s finally Saturday and I have a few minutes to whip up a batch.

I wanted an easy recipe, one that didn’t require a mixer to cream butter and sugar, and one that would really bring out the banana flavor in the bread.  Sometimes banana bread tastes more like cinnamon and spices than it does banana.  I think I really got what I wanted from this recipe!

This bread is super duper dense.  If you like a really moist bread, you’ll like this!!

Enjoy!

Sorry for the crappy camera phone pictures… I was being lazy this morning.  haha
