Moist** and delicious banana bread

What you need:

1 & 3/4 cups flour
1 cup granulated sugar
1 tsp baking powder
1/2 tsp baking soda
1/2 tsp salt
1/2 tsp cinnamon
3 large, very ripe bananas
1 tsp vanilla extract
2 eggs
1/2 cup butter or shortening

What to do:

Preheat oven to 375 degrees and grease 9x5x3 bread pan.

Combine flour, sugar, baking powder, baking soda, salt and cinnamon in a large bowl. Set aside.

Heat butter in microwave until thoroughly melted and let cool until room temperature, but do not let it solidify again.

Peel and mash bananas in a separate bowl. Add vanilla extract to bananas. Then add the two eggs and mix until eggs are fully beaten.

Slowly beat in butter to the banana mixture. Again, make sure the butter is cooled so that it doesn't cook the egg in the mixture.

Combine dry and liquid ingredients and beat no more than 15 seconds. The mixture will be visibly lumpy which is how it's supposed to be. Don't over-mix the batter or the end product will be too hard. Once combined, gently pour into baking pan and put in oven immediately as the baking powder will be activated by the wet ingredients!

Bake 50 minutes or until you can stick a toothpick into the center of the loaf and it comes out clean.

Once the pan is cool enough to touch, carefully invert the pan. The loaf should drop right out, so make sure you support it with your other hand. Let the loaf cool at room temperature on a wire rack and enjoy!
