Transcript:How to Make Homemade Banana BreadHi, I'm Gretchen Siegchrist for About.com Food, and I'm going to show you how to make banana bread. This is a delicious way to use up old, overripe bananas.
Banana Bread IngredientsFor this recipe, you need:
- 1 cup sugar
- 1/4 cup vegetable oil
- 1 egg
- 1 1/2 cups bananas
- 1 1/2 cups flour
- 1 teaspoon salt
- 1 teaspoon baking soda
Begin by preheating the over to 350 degrees and greasing the bread pan. Now, we will mash the bananas, using either a fork or a potato masher.
Mix Banana Bread IngredientsIn a large bowl, mix together the bananas, the sugar, the egg and the oil. In a separate bowl, mix together the flour, the baking soda, and the salt. Now, gradually add the dry ingredients to the wet ones, stirring as you go.
Bake the Banana BreadFill the bread pan approximately 1/3 full and put it in the oven. Let the banana bread bake for about an hour, until it starts to turn dark brown. You should be able to stick in a knife and have it come out clean. Let it cool in the pan before removing and slicing.
