Banana Bread good and simple

Don’t you love banana bread? And a simple delicious recipe makes it that much more tasty! I made this for my sister recuperating from her second knee replacement surgery so she can have a slice with a slather of cream cheese smeared on it for her breakfast or snack or whenever she has a hankering! This recipe is easily adaptive to flavors you would like to add for your tastes! Let us know what you put in your banana bread and inspire us all!

Banana Bread
1/2 cup butter softened
1 cup sugar
2 eggs. Lightly beaten
4 ripe bananas, mushed
1 1/2 cups plain flour
1 tsp baking soda
1/2 tsp salt (I use kosher)
1/2 tsp vanilla

Cream butter and sugar until blended. Add eggs and crushed bananas and combine. In a separate bowl blend the flour, baking soda and salt, stirring to combine and add to the banana mixture; add vanilla and combine. Pour in a greased and floured loaf pan. Bake at 350 degrees for one hour.
This recipe keeps well in the refrigerator.

Try adding chopped walnuts or pecans, a pinch of cinnamon, or some flaked coconut or a combination of any of these! Even a bit of crushed pineapple would be good but I would drain it.
Happy baking!
