Peanut Butter & Banana Bread in 7 Dirty Dishes (w/video)

I’ve posted this bread before, but since then I’ve streamlined the recipe down to a small number of dishes.  So easy, it practically makes itself…
Watch below, and never again let me complain about being pressed for extra free time.
  • Cookware: 1 mixing spoon, 1 tsp, 1/2 cup measure, 1 knife, 1 microwave-safe bowl, 1 large mixing bowl, 1 loaf pan
  • 1.5 cups flour
  • 1 tsp cinnamon
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 1 tsp baking soda
  • 1/3 cup butter
  • 1 egg
  • 2 overripe bananas
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • 1/3 cup peanut butter (even though I used 1/2 cup in the video)
  • 1 cup sugar
  • spray lube
Preheat the oven to 350F and gird your loins.  For the dry:  Mix the flour, cinnamon, salt, and baking soda very well in a large mixing bowl.  For the wet: microwave the butter until melted; wait for it to cool to close to room temperature, then add the egg and beat until mixed well.  Add the bananas and mash/mix until the lumps are mostly gone.  Add the vanilla and the peanut butter, mixed thoroughly.  Add the sugar and mix again.  Add the wet mixture to the dry mixture, and stir AS FEW TIMES AS POSSIBLE to make the dry stuff disappear (this will change from day to day).  Add in a small handful of walnuts or chocolate chips if you want.  Spray your loaf pan with spray lube.  Add the mixture in.  Put it in the oven for anywhere between 50-60 minutes (50 will get you something soft, 60 will get you structure).  Use a knife to loosen the bread from the sides of the pan, then overturn onto a baking wrack (doh!  that’s technically an 8th dish.  Unless you don’t wash it.)

    Very cute–who came up with the idea of the traveling garlic and who named him Mr. Garlic? I think I’d like to have him help me in the kitchen! The recipe looks yummy–can’t wait to try it!
