100g butter, very soft or melted
2 eggs, beaten - optional *
3 over ripe bananas, mashed
1 tsp vanilla extract (can be substituted with 1 tsp vanilla sugar)
(1Tbps molasses, optional)
Heat the oven to 175oC.
Grease and flour a loaf tin (23cms x 13sm, approx.)
Combine dry ingredients.
Combine wet ingredients.
Add wet to dry and mix to combine. Do not over mix, as this will make the bread tough.
Bake for 35-45 minutes or un til a skewer comes out clean.
Serve warm or allow to cool.
This doesn't keep well in warm weather, so store it in the fridge.
*The bread in the picture is made with eggs. Bread made without eggs is also delicious, but will not rise as much.
