Stand Up Comedy & Easy Banana Bread [RECIPE]
Good Morning Friends!
I love beginning my day with a laugh. I used to tune into the news first thing in the morning. But I found that it made me anxious, depressed, and overall pessimistic. So I began to tune into the news less, and find ways to brighten my mornings more! Now, I love stand up comedy. In fact, Mr. Noob Chef and I love comedy so much that one of our favorite dates was going to see comedian Jo Koy live at our local theater when he came through on tour. He was hilarious! Now, I listen to random comedians while I wake up over my morning cup of tea and giggle first thing in the morning. It lifts my mood. I have jokes to share with the family, and it makes me feel fantastic. Here are a few comedians that I’ve been listening to lately:
And now, let’s jump into today’s recipe. 🙂
My daughter came up to me the other day with two blackened bananas in her hand and asked, “Mama, can we make banana bread with these?”. So, we did! This recipe is so simple that you don’t need to really follow the “toss the dry ingredients in first” step. No. Just grab a stand mixer, toss everything in. Whip the you-know-what out of it for 2 minutes and pour into a quick bread pan. Bake for 1 hour and you’re set. Waking up this morning to breakfast tea, a slice of banana bread, and stand up comedy was the perfect way to kick off the weekend. I hope you all have a beautiful Friday and a lovely weekend. Enjoy this recipe, and as always, keep on cooking! ❤
Easy Banana Bread
- 3 ripe bananas, mashed
- 1 cup white sugar
- 1 egg
- 1/4 cup melted butter
- 1 1/2 cup all-purpose flour
- 1 teaspoon baking soda
- 1 teaspoon salt
- Preheat oven to 325 degrees F (165 degrees C). Grease a 9×5-inch loaf pan.
- Combine bananas, sugar, egg, and butter together in a bowl. Mix flour and baking soda together in a separate bowl; stir into banana mixture until batter is just mixed. Stir salt into batter. Pour batter into the prepared loaf pan.
