Three years of my life as an EU student of English Literature at the University of East Anglia,England.
I have discovered a new amazing thing: banana bread! My friends seem to know about it so I guess it’s just not a French thing. If you have too many bananas and don’t know what to do with them, or are just looking for a good filling snack/breakfast, I have what you need! This recipe is super fast and easy (and therefore perfect for students!).
3 peeled bananas, preferably very ripe
1/3 cup of melted butter
1/2 sugar (some recipes say you can use more, but 1/2 is more than enough)
1 egg, beaten
1 teaspoon vanilla extract (if you don’t have any I’m sure it’s fine)
1 teaspoon baking soda (I didn’t have any, and it still tasted and looked good)
Pinch of salt
1 and 1/2 flour
A small loaf pan (or any small container than can go in the oven)
Preheat the oven to 175°C
In a bowl, mash the bananas with a fork and stir the melted butter in the mashed bananas.
Add baking soda, salt, sugar, beaten egg and vanilla extract
Mix in the flour.
It’s ready to put in the oven! Bake for about 50 minutes but keep checking it, and see if the knife comes out clean.
