Recipe Roundup: Easy Banana Bread

Who doesn’t love the smell of their house while banana bread is baking? Who doesn’t enjoy baking when you have a toddler pulling on your pant legs and wanting to be picked up where you suddenly have no extra hands to do anything?

This recipe is easy to make, has only a few everyday ingredients, and is a recipe that your toddler can help with, every step of the way (and will try to eat the whole thing after it’s done )

Banana Bread

4 large, ripe bananas
1 cup sugar
1 teaspoon vanilla
2 cups flour (you can substitute 1 cup of whole wheat flour if you’d like)
1/2 cup melted butter or margarine
2 eggs
1 1/2 teaspoon baking powder
1/2 teaspoon salt

Mix in order given and put into a large loaf pan. Bake at 350′ for 50 minutes.

I typically just use a wire whisk and a bowl to mix this in. It works great, and you can give your little one their own whisk to help along.
