Spring has me baking up a storm! Today I had some bananas that I let get a little bit too ripe, so I decided to mix them up into a nice banana bread. For this particular bread, I used some great McCormick products to spice it up. I love using a teaspoon of Vanilla Extract to enhance the flavor and I also used some Nutmeg in this recipe. Of course, I can’t go without a crunchy topping, so I made a crumble topping using white sugar, brown sugar and ground cinnamon.
- 3 Ripe Bananas
- 1 c Sugar
- 1 Egg
- 1/3 c Melted Butter
- 1 tsp McCormick Pure Vanilla Extract
- 1 tsp McCormick Ground Nutmeg
- 1 tsp Baking Soda
- 1 1/2 c Flour
Step 1: Preheat oven to 350 degrees and grease bread pan. I used my mini loaf stoneware, so I ended up with 4 mini-loaves of bread.
Step 2: In a medium sized bowl, peel the bananas and mash the fruit with a fork.
Step 3: Add each of the main ingredients into the bowl one at a time and continue to mix thoroughly with your fork. The nice thing about this recipe is that no mixer is needed!
Step 4: Pour mix into the bread pan.
Step 5: Mix together the crumble topping and add to the top.
Step 6; Bake for approximately 1 hour. Check the center with a toothpick to test and make sure it is finished cooking. Since I used the mini loaf pan, my cook-time decreased by approximately 15 minutes.
