This has been my go to banana bread recipe for years now. Of course, I have tweaked it to my own taste, but that is because I never know how many bananas I will have on hand. If I don't have enough bananas, I add some applesauce. I whip the holy heck outta the butter/sugar/vanilla/eggs and then fold in the remaining ingredients, including the bananas. I always double the recipe. I want to make this very important point. Your final product should be fairly sticky. Sometimes I add a cinnamon/sugar/butter topping, not always. I always check it at 45 minutes and if it's too brown on top for my liking i put some foil on it. I have to admit i use a mixture of old bananas from the freezer and ones from the counter top that are just too far gone to eat for my taste. And again, I don't use the mixer on the bananas, I mash those just a little in a different bowl, I add vanilla to the wet mixture. This last time I added chia seeds and cardamom. And the sugar/cinnamon/butter topping! You cannot go wrong with this recipe. I have made it easily a few dozen times. It's always been delicious. Enjoy! And thank you, Shelley!
