Make Banana Bread in Your Apartment

With oversized pantries, large cabinets, and spacious refrigerators, the kitchens of each PepperTree apartment home is well-appointed and a great place to cook some baked treats. One popular baked good that has truly stood the test of time is banana bread. This popular dish is not only delicious, it’s also an excellent way to use bananas that are starting to turn brown, in fact many people recommend using slightly overripe bananas for this dish.

Here are the steps to making banana bread in your PepperTree apartment home:

  • Ingredients

    • 2 cups all-purpose flour

    • 1 teaspoon baking soda

    • ¼ teaspoon salt

    • ½ cup butter

    • ¾ cup brown sugar

    • 2 eggs, beaten

    • 2 - 3 mashed, overripe bananas

  • Directions

    • Preheat oven to 350 degrees

    • Lightly grease a 9x5 inch loaf pan

    • Combine flour, baking soda, and salt in a large bowl

    • Cream together butter and brown sugar in a separate bowl, then add eggs and mashed bananas

    • Stir banana mixture into flour mixture, and stir just enough to moisten

    • Pour batter into loaf pan

    • Bake for approximately one hour, or until a toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean

    • Let bread cool in the pan for 10 minutes, then transfer to a wire rack or plate

If you’d like, you can also add walnuts to the banana mixture for some extra crunch. Following these steps, it’s easy to make banana bread in your PepperTree apartment by The Villages, FL.
