Super Delicious Banana Bread

This last Sunday I spent almost the whole day baking. Great for my heart, bad for my thighs. But I digest... err... digress.

Anyhoo, one of the treats I made was this amazingly delicious banana bread. I just don't think there's anything better than warm bread right out of the oven, smothered in butter. Mmmm... my mouth is watering just thinking about it. Enjoy!

Super Delicious Banana Bread 
(taken from The Food Network website)

- 1 cup granulated sugar
- 8 tablespoons (1 stick) unsalted butter, room temperature
- 3 ripe bananas
- 2 large eggs
- 1 tablespoon milk
- 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
- 2 cups all-purpose flour
- 1 teaspoon baking powder
- 1 teaspoon baking soda
- 1 teaspoon salt

Preheat the oven to 325 degrees F. Butter a 9 x 5 x 3 inch loaf pan.

Cream the sugar and butter in a large mixing bowl until light and fluffy. Add the eggs one at a time, beating well after each addition.

In a small bowl, mash the bananas with a fork. Mix in the milk and cinnamon. In another bowl, mix together the flour, baking powder, baking soda and salt.

Add the banana mixture to the creamed mixture and stir until combined. Add dry ingredients, mixing just until flour disappears.

Pour batter into prepared pan and bake 1 hour to 1 hour 10 minutes, until a toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean. Set aside to cool on a rack for 15 minutes. Remove bread from pan, invert onto rack and cool completely before slicing.
