The Banana Bread

It's baking season! Banana bread combines two things I love the most - using up food that needs to be eaten, and the smell of something freshly baked. If you've got a few bananas that are overly ripe, use this easy recipe.

Preheat oven to 170C. Mash three overly ripe bananas until smooth. Then add a cup of sugar, a fourth of a cup of melted butter, a dash of vanilla essence, a sprinkle of cinnamon powder and an egg. Combine, and then add 1.5 cup self rising flour. If nut allergies aren't an issue add a cup of broken walnuts. Combine till just mixed. Grease a small loaf pan (or a big loaf pan if you want cake-ish slices like I got) and pour the batter in and bake for an hour or until a toothpick comes out clean or with a few crumbs. I like mine the tiniest bit undercooked :)

Cut slices and serve warm with a dab of butter.
