Scrumdilicious Banana Bread
So I had some ripe (overly so) bananas in my fridge (here in Turkey it's the only way I can keep them for longer than a day or two it seems) and I wanted to make some banana bread. I haven't had a lot of luck with cakes and breads here and generally just get pissed off about the whole thing. But... I thought, why not give it one more try. So here is the recipe that I found online:
4 ripe, mashed bananas 1/3 cup melted butter 3/4 cup sugar 1 egg 1 tsp vanilla 1 tsp baking soda dash of salt 1 1/2 cups flour
I threw in a crushed up bar of dark chocolate just for fun and a little extra flour because it seemed a little too moist when I was mixing it and that always turns into cake/bread gone to trash here.
