A Simple and Authentic Banana Bread made with very ripe bananas and with a touch of ginger, nutmeg and cinnamon.
- 2-3 very ripe bananas peeled
- 1/3 cup melted butter
- 1 cup of sugar can easily use 3/4 cup, or drop it down to 1/2 cup if you want it less sweet
- 1 egg beaten
- 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
- 1 teaspoon baking soda
- Pinch of salt
- 1 1/2 cups of all-purpose flour
- 1 teaspoon freshly ground nutmeg
- 1 teaspoon ground ginger
- Dash of ground cinnamon
Preheat the oven to 350°F (175°C), and butter a 4x8-inch loaf pan.
In a mixing bowl, mash the ripe bananas with a fork until smooth. Stir the melted butter into the mashed bananas.
Mix in the baking soda, salt, nutmeg, ginger and cinnamon. Stir in the sugar, beaten egg, and vanilla extract. Mix in the flour.
Pour the batter into your prepared loaf pan. Bake for 1 hour to 1 hour 10 minutes (check at 50 minutes) at 350°F (175°C), or until a tester inserted into the center comes out clean.
Remove from oven and cool completely on a rack. Remove the banana bread from the pan. Slice and serve. (A bread knife helps to make slices that aren't crumbly).
Notes: Egg must be at room temperature.
