Preparation Time :
Prep Time: 10 minutes
Inactive Prep: 1 hour
3 ripe bananas
1 tablespoon milk plus 2 teaspoons more
1 teaspoon cinnamon
8 tablespoons (1 stick) unsalted butter, room temperature
1 cup granulated sugar
2 cups all-purpose flour
1 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon baking powder
1 teaspoon baking soda
1 teaspoon vanilla
1/2 chopped walnuts (optional)
Preheat the oven to 325 degrees F.
In a small bowl, mash the 3 bananas with a fork. Add the 1 tablespoon milk and cinnamon. Mix together and keep aside.
In a separate mixing bowl, cream the sugar and butter until light and fluffy. Mix with a blender and add the eggs one at a time so it can be well blended.
In another bowl mix together the flour, salt, baking powder and baking soda.
Add the banana mixture to the butter, sugar and eggs mixture and stir until combined. Add the dry ingredients blending until the flour disappears.
After batter has been mixed, add 1 teaspoon of vanilla and the 2 teaspoons of milk. Now blend again. After the batter has been well mixed, add the chopped walnuts. Remember to fold and mix, not blend.
Spray a loaf baking pan with non-stick cooking spray and add a pinch of flour so the bread will not stick to the pan. Pour the batter into the pan and bake for 1 hour until toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean.
Set aside to cool for 5-10 minutes. Cut the bread into slices and serve warm with ice cream or whipped cream.
