Weekend recipes : Janine's Best Banana Bread

This is a recipe from allrecipes.com 

We baked 3 recipes this weekend.  We had a ton of bananas in the freezer, and still have enough to make some more.  We would have baked 4, but could not find our usual recipe.  It's got to be somewhere in the house.

1/4 cup butter, softened  

1 cup white sugar  
1 egg 
3 ripe bananas, mashed  
2 cups all-purpose flour  
1 teaspoon baking soda 
1/2 teaspoon salt 
  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Lightly grease an 8x4 inch loaf pan.
  2. In a large bowl, cream together butter and sugar. Beat in the egg and mashed bananas. Mix in flour, baking soda and salt just until combined. Pour into prepared loaf pan.
  3. Bake in preheated oven for 1 hour. If top begins to brown too quickly, decrease heat slightly. Center should be soft and chewy, while the outside, crisp and crunchy.


This was the least favorite of the three.  We tried one slice each and that was it.  It wasn't bad, but did not compare to the other two.
