Mixing healthy shit into meals (especially dishes we can serve for drunk brunches) is like, something we can all get behind. The good news is that even though those bananas you bought at the store def turned black like, 2 days ago, you can salvage them with a little help from banana bread.
We’ve outlined a recipe that doesn’t include thaaaaat much butter and doesn’t make use of a mixer, since some of us hate baking and are all about #36 not doing work. Now you can partake in breakfast drinking with the added knowledge that you’re getting your daily serving of fruit in the form of mimosas and banana bread.
Betchy Banana Bread:
- 2-3 very ripe bananas, peeled (they need to be black, squishy, and gross)
- 1/3 cup melted unsalted butter
- 1 cup sugar (I usually do ½ cup brown sugar and ½ white sugar)
- 1 large egg, beaten
- 1 tsp baking soda
- 1 tsp cinnamon
- 2 tsp Kahlua or other coffee liquor (seriously though)
- Pinch of salt
- 1 ½ cups all-purpose flour
Preheat the oven to 350°F (175°C) and grease a 4×8-inch loaf pan. In a large mixing bowl, smash the peeled bananas until they’re smooth. Stir in the melted butter then the remaining ingredients until you're left with a decent looking batter that isn't lumpy and shit – it’ll still look kind of gross, obviously. Pour into the loaf pan and bake for 50-70 minutes or until a toothpick inserted into the center of the bread comes out clean. Remove from oven and cool on a rack.
You can also add nuts or like, chocolate into this shit. Impress a pro with how domestic you are, show up your non-culinary besties, or just gift it to your frenemies and watch it go straight to their asses.
