Banana Bread

I found this yummy recipe at I had put some bananas in the freezer several months ago and knew that I needed to use them ASAP. On sunday I was bored and needed something to do so I ended up baking.
My husband loves banana bread but as long as there are no nuts. He gave these muffins two thumbs and asked me to make them again.

Banana Bread...(I made muffins)

1. preheat oven to 350

2. In one bowl combine the following
1/2 stick butter softened but not melted
2 eggs
2/3 very ripe banana- I squished mine all up so they were very watery and not a lot of chunks
2/3 cup sugar

If you have not already mashed your bananas go ahead and mash them while mixing the there ingredients

In another bowl combing the following
1 1/3 cup floue
3/4 tsp salt
1.2 tsp baking soda
1/4 tsp baking powder
1/2 tsp cinnamon

combine the wet ingredients into the dry ingredients. Mix well

Pour into either a loaf pan and bake about 50 minutes or
Pour into muffin pans and bake roughly 20 minutes check after 15.

Next time i make it I will be able to eat it since I will make it on a loading day fro my HCG diet.
