This is a recipe I first made in 1973 when I was a newly wed. It came from a wedding gift, Better Homes and Gardens New Cook Book. This is still my favorite cook book.
Much like banana bread but better. I have even put a light layer of simple powdered sugar frosting on top to dress it up but, it does not need it.
BANANA COFFEE BREAD
1 stick butter
1 cup sugar
3/4 c mashed ripe banana - I use three bananas which might be a bit more than 3/4 c but makes it very moist.
1 1/4 C flour
3/4 t baking soda
1/2 t salt
Cream together butter and sugar.
Mix in eggs til light and fluffy.
Stir in banana
Mix together dry ingredients and then fold into creamed mixture and blend thoroughly.
Bake 350 for 30-35 min in a greased 9" x 9" pan.
