Simple Banana Bread


Question of the day: pitch the two sad looking bananas or stir a few ingredients together and end up with banana bread. The problem was that I was short on time, and my normal creaming of softened butter and sugar together and sifting the flour wasn’t going to happen.
So a shortened, one bowl, wooden spoon version of banana bread was created. And it turned out great!

Very Simple Banana Bread

2 C flour
1 tsp baking soda
1/2 tsp salt
1/2 C canola oil
1 C sugar
2 eggs
2 very ripe mashed bananas
1/3 C milk
1/2 C chopped walnuts

Mix the sugar and oil together with a wooden spoon. Add the mashed bananas and eggs. Mix well. Add the milk. Keep mixing. Add the flour, baking soda and salt. Stir it all together until everything is combined. Fold in the nuts and put the mixture into a well greased 5 x 9 inch pan. Bake at 350 for about 55 minutes. Let it cool in the pan for about ten minutes before you turn it out on a wire rack to cool. Breads of this type are moist and keep really well. They also freeze well.
