Hotel Hana Maui Banana Bread ~
While I can’t go to Maui right now due to the pandemic, I can make banana bread from one of the preeminent hotels there: the Hana-Maui Resort. It seems almost cliche to bake banana bread during the pandemic – at least it did at the beginning. But now I’m gonna bake it if I want to because a good one is DeathbedFood.
Here’s the recipe below:
In a large bowl, cream together 1 stick (1/2 cup) unsalted butter, softened, and 1 cup sugar until the mixture if light and fluffy. Add 2 large eggs, 1 at a time. Add 3 very ripe bananas. Into a bowl sift together 2 cups all-purpose flour and 1 teaspoon baking soda. Add the mixture to the banana mixture. Combine the batter well.
Pour the batter into a buttered loaf pan, 8 x 4 x 2.5 inches and bake it in a 350 degree oven for 1 hour or until a cake tester inserted into the center comes out clean.
Let the bread cool on a rack for 20 minutes, then turn it out of the pan onto the rack, and let it cool completely before slicing it.
Tweet me @DeathbedFood if you make it and tell me how you liked it!
