Banana Bread

Everyone knows the joy of warm banana bread fresh from the oven right?  Or are you afraid of making a bread all by yourself?    Well this is going to be the easiest sweet bread recipe you will find.  There are just 8 ingredients and 4 minutes of prep work to get you a delicious loaf of bread every one in your house is going to want a piece of.

Before you get started make sure:

  1.  Make sure all the ingredients are at room temperature before starting.  (Leaving them on the counter for about an hour will do it.)
  2. The bananas should be over ripe.  The peels should be black but there should not be any fur or grossness.
