Banana Bread

Shortly after we moved to West Jordan (Jan 07) we had some bananas that were on the verge of going bad so hubby wanted banana bread. Well being the 'non-homemaker' that I was/am I had never made it (to my recollection anyways) so I searched online and found a recipe for 'Easy Banana Bread' it is so simple! Rob absolutely loves it! He says it's the best he's ever had!

1 Cup Sugar
8 Tablespoons Butter/Margarine
3 Bananas
Cream Sugar/Butter, Mash Bananas and add to the mixture
***The thing that Rob LOVES about my nanner bread is that I don't completely mash the Bananas but I leave some chunks....he loves that!
2 Eggs Beat and add to the mixture
Then slowly add
1 & 1/4 cup flour
1 t Baking Soda
1/2 t salt
You can also add Walnuts but Rob and I prefer it plain.
Set oven to 350 for 30-45 Min (I have found that mine usually need about 1 hour on 350) so just keep that in mind, do the toothpick trick to test for doneness.

To make it less calories for us dieters, use Splenda instead of Sugar, also use low fat or fat free butter or margarine, although make sure it says for baking or you'll end up with really gooey 'heavy' bread! I'll post pictures later of my masterpiece I made today!
