Because I love to cook, people assume I enjoy other domestic pursuits as well. This is far from the truth. I am not into crafts, scrapbooking or sewing. I am incapable of arranging flowers, making greeting cards, or even decorating my house. My walls are bare because I have no idea how to place photos or pictures in artsy arrangements. I rationalize by calling my style of décor “minimalistic”. But really I am simply “clueless”. However, in cooking, minimal ingredients can result in incredible taste and ease. My three ingredient banana bread is a perfect example of a minimalistic masterpiece!
I can mix this up and have sweet, warm, moist banana bread in less than an hour- including baking time! And all the flavors are there. No one will ever guess that you weren’t measuring, sifting, and mixing all day. For some crunchy texture, add some nuts. I love adding glazed walnuts for even more sweetness.
A great tip for ease in serving and clean-up is to line your pans with wax paper. You don’t have to use spray or grease for your pans and the loaves lift right out. Peel the paper off and you have a perfect finish!
Mix all ingredients for at least two minutes. Pour into waxpaper lined loaf pans (about 2/3 full). Bake at 350 for about 45 minutes. Cool on wire racks. Makes 2 medium sized loaves.
