this bread is bananas....B-A-N-A-N-A-S

So I really don't feel like writing today. Don't know why. Mayhaps because I've been insanely tired, despite getting 8 hours of sleep. I dunno, it's quite the mystery.

But anyways, NINETEEN DAYS TILL EASTER! You know what that means, right? DESSERT-TIME! YES YES YES. Only a tad bit excited, as you can see.

A few weeks ago, Raluca made this delicious banana bread, and she had forgotten the butter. So now this banana bread recipe is baked sans butter, just because it came out so great without it. Personally, I think the bread tastes great without butter, but you might think otherwise. It is a lot healthier, though, and has an airier texture. However, I did manage to mess up the recipe a second time and accidentally added three eggs instead of two. Whoops. :)

This bread is delicious right on its own, but especially delicious with peanut butter or spray butter. Or real butter, if you're feelin' crazy.

Raluca Banana Bread

1 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
1 tsp. baking soda
1/2 tsp. salt
1 cup white sugar
3 eggs, lightly beaten
4 large, ripe bananas

Preheat oven to 400 degrees. Spray a loaf pan with non-stick cooking spray. In medium bowl, cream eggs and sugar. Set aside.

In large bowl, combine flour, baking soda, salt, and sugar. Create a well in the middle of the bowl, and pour in creamed eggs and sugar and mashed bananas. Mix until just combined.

Pour batter into loaf pan. Bake for 1 hour, or until toothpick comes out clean. Cool. Devour.

So simple to make, yet sounds delish. I'm trying it today!

A great way to get that butter in there, but not use butter is by adding 2 tbs of creamy peanut butter! Also, you don't even need sugar, just add extra bananas.
