Ahhhhh.…ripe bananas…..the best for making banana bread….
This is an old family recipe handed down from a dear friend from Bermuda.
♥ Thanks Verona!! You taught us well. ♥
In a medium mixing bowl, sift flour, salt, nutmeg and baking powder. Set aside.
In a large mixing bowl, add sugar and butter and cream until smooth.
Blend in the egg.
Gradually add the flour mixture, stirring well. Using a large fork, add bananas mashing until mixture is creamy.
Pour batter into a lightly greased loaf pan and bake at 375º for 45 minutes (or until done–pierce with a knife and if it comes out clean, it’s ready!). I always check the bread at the 30 minute mark if for nothing else than letting the aroma fill the kitchen…
can you smell it?
Oh it’s so good…..brew a cup of tea and enjoy.
