easiest banana bread ever

this banana bread turned out so delicious and was super easy. the recipe was shared with me so i will pay it forward and share it with the internet. i doubled the recipe and added a few more bananas that we had laying around going black. 

preheat the oven to 375 and grease the pan. 

dry ingredients: ( i like to mix all the dry ingredients together before adding any of the liquids to cut down on mixing time. i think i read somewhere that the less you mix the batter the fluffier it will be)
3/4 cup of sugar
1/2 tsp salt
1 tsp baking soda
1 tsp baking powder
1 1/2 cup of all purpose flour

wet ingredients:
3 bananas mashed
1 egg
1/3 cup of cooking oil

mix it all together, pour it in a greased pan. check after 25 minutes by sticking a knife into the middle to see if it comes out clean. as soon as it does, your good to take it out of the oven. (doubled i think it baked for 50-60 minutes) once the batter is added to the pan* i sprinkled lots of brown sugar on the top and some of the crushed pecans. delicious. 

i also added pecans to this batter but in the past i have made it with walnuts, chocolate chips and even with peanut butter added in instead of cooking oil. you can add vanilla extract, nutmeg or all spice if your looking for more flavour. 
if you want to make banana muffins just pour the batter into muffin tins and bake for about 20 minutes.

* choose a pan that looks like it is too big for the batter because it will double in size (at least) while it cooks. 

make a tea. eat and enjoy.
