College apps have been the only thing on my mind right now! All my extra time that hasn’t been devoted to homework is for college stuff. So I ran in to a predicament where I need to ask teachers for letter of recommendation; to pursued my teachers to write a stellar essay, because lets be honest here, I wasn’t all that memorable, I made them some banana bread. Even though it’s technically a part of their job to write letters of rec, I still wanted to be nice and thank them for all the extra time they are willing to sacrifice for me 🙂
The process of making this gorgeous bread was painful for me because there wasn’t enough for me to get any, not even a small sliver! The buttery smell wafting through the house was just plain torture!
I did end up asking and presented them each with a beautiful baked loaf of banana bread which I think they enjoyed! Especially since I even had a teacher email me an hour later saying she couldn’t stop eating it because it was so good!
This weekend I was craving some of this delicious banana bread so I baked up the recipe again and made a blog post out of it. I’m always making banana bread and not following a recipe so I get pretty mixed results, but I mean still eat them all, so anyways this recipe was definitely better than my most to which I decided to save. Although waiting for the bunch of bananas to ripen was hard this week, I persevered and was able to have perfect bananas.
Because I really think all of you need to make this super easy recipe, you should make sure to double if your going to be will to share, or not…
So get out some rotting bananas that your about to toss and lets bake up some bread!
Bribery Banana Bread
- 1 & 1/2 Cups Flour
- 1 Teaspoon Baking Powder
- 1 Teaspoon Baking Soda
- 1 Egg
- Pinch of Sea Salt
- Pinch of Cinnamon
- 1/4 Cup Sugar
- 1/2 Cup Brown Sugar
- 1/2 Cup Softened Butter
- 3 Bananas
- 1 Teaspoon Vanilla
- 1/2 Cup Nuts, Rasins or Chocolate Chips Optional
- 1 Tablespoon Raw Cane Sugar Optional
First you'll want to get out a large bowl for all the ingredients. Then add you bananas into a bowl to mash; you will know if they are ripe enough if they are super soft.
Second, add in all the wet ingredients to the banana mix and mix. The butter may stay a bit chunky which is ok.
To finish the batter, pour all dry ingredients into the mix. This should start to turn to a lighter color as the butter mixes in; the batter will also be quite thick.
If desired you may add in nuts, raisins or chocolate chips. Gently fold into the batter.
Fill your pans or muffin tins and top with raw cane sugar to add a delicious crunch!
Finally, put your breads into the oven and bake at 350F for 30 minutes or till a toothpick comes out clean.
