Banana Bread

The other day my husband bought 6 bananas. I didn't know and I bought another 6 the next day. Needless to say, a few of them started getting too-ripe-to-eat with in 3 days. So I decided to make Banana Bread. I cant believe that I started baking healthy things like this! Its fairly an easy bread to bake, considering you don't have to wait for it to raise. 
I am also sending this to Aipi's and Priya's Ripe Banana Event.

Banana's: 4, very ripe, mashed
Sugar: 1/2 cup (You can increase this to 3/4 cup)
Vanilla extract: 1 tsp
Egg: 1, beaten
Melted Butter: 1/3 cup
Salt: a small pinch
Baking Soda: 1 tsp
All Purpose Flour: 1 1/2 cup

Preheat the oven to 350 D F. Mash the banana's well in a big bowl and keep aside. Beat the egg and keep aside. Now, add sugar, Vanilla extract, baking soda, butter, salt and egg into the mashed bananas. Now add the flour and mix well.
Pour the batter into a greased loaf pan and bake for 1 hour. Cool completely and slice off!

Note: My current oven's starting temperature is only 350 D F. If yours is different, make sure to adjust the baking time or until a toothpick comes out clean when inserted in middle.
