Banana Bread

Source: My Mum, Andrea

This is one of my most used recipes. My Mum used to make it a lot when I was growing up. I guess there isn’t anything particular unique about this banana bread, but it is simple and delicious.

This loaf is best hot from the oven while the top is still crispy, with a little butter. Just let cool for about 10-15 minutes before slicing.

Ingredients:
1/2 cup Margarine
3/4 cup Sugar
2 Eggs
1-1 1/4 cups Mashed Banana
1 3/4 cups Flour
2 1/4 tsp Baking Powder
1/2 tsp Salt
* 1/2-1 cup chocolate chips or walnuts, optional

Directions:
1. Preheat oven to 350°F
2. Blend together Margarine and Sugar
3. Beat Eggs, add to sugar mixture
4. Add Mashed Bananas, beat ingredients together
5. Sift together dry ingredients (Flour, Baking Powder and Salt), add in parts to sugar mixture, beating after each addition
6. Add in Chocolate Chips or Walnuts, if you wish
7. Pour batter into greased loaf pan
8. Bake for 1 hour, or until the loaf pulls away from the sides of the pan
