Simple banana bread recipe that requires only one bowl and no mixer needed!

"Mmmmmm! Outstanding! We had 2 bunches of way overripe bananas that we put to perfect use in this recipe! I coated the pans with shortening and brown sugar and sprinkled a bit on the top of each loaf, along with slivered almonds. What a fantastic dessert bread! Perfect, straightforward recipe. I'll certainly make this again. My whole fam loved it!

Just a note: 1 cup of banana is approximately 10 oz or 284g. But I like using a little more banana than what is called for.

Halved quantities of all ingredients. Added half a cup of plain yogurt. Fluffiest banana bread I've ever made.

My family loves this. It's a great way to use up bananas that are starting to brown
