Our Family's Favorite Banana Bread Recipe

I found the original recipe on  I have altered it a little bit, but the basic recipe is a good foundation to start with. 

Our Family's Banana Banana Bread Recipe
2 cups all-purpose flour
1 teaspoon baking soda
1/4 teaspoon salt
1/2 cup butter
3/4 cup brown sugar
2 eggs, beaten
2 1/3 cups mashed overripe bananas(or as many bananas as you have in your kitchen.  We usually use 6.)
1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract for flavor
Granulated sugar to sprinkle on top of muffins
1.Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Put liners into muffin pan.

2.In a large bowl, combine flour, baking soda and salt. In a separate bowl, cream together butter and brown sugar. Stir in eggs and mashed bananas until well blended. Stir banana mixture into flour mixture; stir just to combine.  The batter will be moist. Pour batter into muffin pan.

3.Bake in preheated oven for 30 to 35 minutes.  Sprinkle granulated sugar on muffin tops after 20 minutes of cooking.  Muffins are ready when a toothpick inserted into center and comes out clean. Let muffins cool in pan for 10 minutes.

What are your family's favorite recipes?
Happy baking everyone!
