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

My dear friend Brianna (of the famous Monday Sunday Kitchen)  makes the absolute best banana bread. I feel like I've tried a million banana bread recipes over the years, and there are some great ones out there, some significantly healthier ones too, but ultimately I just always end up coming back to this one. It's classic. It's perfect. It's what banana bread was always meant to be.

And thankfully Brianna was gracious enough to share her recipe with me.

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.

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.
