Farm(ish) girl Amy is here to assure you that you can make banana bread using the mashings of only one banana. And the awesome thing about it? You can mix all the ingredients for this bread up only using one bowl.
How awesome is that? One banana and less dishes?
Sign. me. up.
Let’s get started.
Ingredients for “One Banana” Banana Bread
1 ripe banana, (mashed up in the mixing bowl you’re going to use)
1 egg (with enough milk to make 1 cup)
1 stick of butter, softened
1 tsp vanilla
1 1/2 cups flour
1 cup sugar
1 tsp baking soda
How to Make “One Banana” Banana Bread
The awesome thing about this? Take all those ingredients and put them in a large bowl.
That’s right. All of them. All together.
Mix it all up until all the lumps are gone.
(And yes, those might be lumps of butter in my batter. My butter wasn’t completely softened. Let this be a lesson to you all.)
Pour the batter into a greased loaf pan. The batter should fill the pan about 2/3 full.
Bake at 350 for 45 minutes.
And then? Then, you guys, you have a beautiful loaf of banana bread.
Don’t even to convince me that you don’t want to eat that. Because I won’t believe you.
But I am gonna tell you secret. This is a pro tip here: this bread is really great right out of the oven, but tastes even better the second day.
So if you can hold off—and I know it’s hard—know that it’s going to be even more glorious when you wake up tomorrow.
And there you have it—banana bread you can make with that one. lone. banana. Y’all, this is so simple, you could even use this recipe when you’re teaching your kiddos to cook.
You’re welcome. And enjoy!
