my friend brianna's mother's banana bread from the 1960's.... or something like that

I've never been a banana-bread fan. I've never even thought of making it before. Maybe it's because I grew up with a mother who despises bananas, or maybe it's because I have unpleasant childhood memories of banana-flavoured penicillin.... well whatever it is, it's all changed now...

You see, my dear friend Brianna's husband LOVES banana bread. Or maybe he just loves her banana bread. She does make delicious banana bread. I know this because the other day while I was visiting I got to try a slice. And much to my surprise I loved it too! In fact, I had two : )

So here is the ridiculously simple recipe for the scrumptious banana bread.... from my friend Brianna's mother, who apparently got the recipe from a 1960's local women's fundraiser cookbook.

Recipe after the jump...

Brianna's Banana Bread

1/2 cup of soft butter
1 cup of sugar
2 eggs
4 tbsp of milk
1 tsp of baking powder
1 tsp of baking soda
1/4 tsp of salt
1 3/4 cup of flour
2 ripe bananas (mashed)
1 tsp vanilla

Cream the butter, sugar and eggs. Add milk, followed by the dry ingredients. In a separate bowl combine mashed bananas and vanilla. Mix the banana mixture into the bread mixture and voila you're done! Grease a bread pan and bake at 350 for 1 hour or until a toothpick comes out clean.
