banana bread

From an email from Mom: “Here is the banana bread recipe. I must have made this every week when you and Claire were little. This was Aunt Helen’s recipe. I added the bran and wheat germ to keep you healthy!”

  • 2 eggs
  • 1 cup sugar
  • 1 stick butter, melted
  • 3 very ripe bananas mashed
  • 2 cups flour
  • 1 teas. Soda
  • 1 pinch of salt
  • Optional: 3 T. bran and 2 T. wheat germ (or use white whole wheat flour)

Beat eggs and sugar, add butter and bananas, mix well. Add flour and other dry ingredients. Pour into a greased loaf pan and bake in a slow oven, 265 degrees for about 45 minutes (In my oven, it takes 1:15 to 1:30).
