Banana Bread

When you live in the dorms you can collect bananas easy from the dining room. It doesn't take long for them to ripen and brown. And because you are always looking for an excuse to take a study break, why not make banana bread?!!

This is mom's recipe: easy and delicious :)

beat together:
1/2 c butter, softened
1/2 c sugar

add (and beat together):
1/4 cup water

add (and beat together):
1-2 eggs (in proportion to number of bananas used, 3-4)
3-4 ripe bananas, mashed
1 t vanilla

in separate bowl (or same, if you're like me :)):
2 c flour
1/2 t salt
1 t baking soda
1/2 t cinnamon
(mix in chopped nuts or chocolate chips as desired)

mix it all together and pour into a greased bread pan. bake at 350 for 45-60 minutes. ENJOY!
