Banana Bread

Banana bread has always been a favourite of mine. 
When I was little, there were always recipes mum made, and recipes dad made - this was a dad recipe!

½ cup of margarine or butter
2/3 cup of  granulated sugar
1 egg
2 mashed bananas
1 ½ cups of all purpose flour
1 teaspoon of baking soda
¼ teaspoon of salt
*chocolate chips or walnuts (optional)


Preheat the oven to 350°F
In a heat proof bowl, melt the butter and then add the sugar.
Mix it together. Add the egg, and mix. 
 It should look like this:
Add the two mashed bananas, and mix.
Then add in the final ingredients of flour, baking soda and salt.
Grease and flour a bread pan, and then add in the mixture. 
Try to level it all out.
Bake for 45 minutes to an hour.
Whenever I make this it tends to be closer to an hour.
Stick a skewer in the middle, and if it comes off with any raw batter, you know it needs to be cooked a little long.
