You don’t need a mixer at all; you just mash the bananas, add some sugar and an egg, stir in the flour and other dry ingredients, pour it in a pan and bake for an hour and you’re done!

Elise calls for 1/3 cup melted butter to go in this bread, but we substituted oil, cutting out even that step. This turned out perfect, with a tender, moist crumb. In fact, it was rather more perfect than the much more complicated banana bread we usually make. We also added a handful of chocolate chips for a special treat.

Highly recommended recipe – we enjoyed the bread all week; it stayed moist and tender for five days!
