Banana bread (muffins)

Had some bananas going bad on the counter today so I decided to make banana bread.  I wanted then to be easily portable for breakfast so I made muffins
instead of the regular loaf. 

3 ripe bananas
1 cup white sugar
1 egg
1/4 cup melted butter
2 cups flour
1/2 tsp salt
1 tsp baking powder

Possibly the best thing that came out of my relationship with my ex was my Kitchen Aid mixer.  I use it for everything and it's amazing.  But we mixed this for my entire childhood with a masher and a wooden spoon so you don't need to be fancy. 

Peel the bananas and put them in a bowl (mixer with whisk attachment) mash them up or whisk on low speed until they are smooth.  ( Sorry I forgot to take pics of this step I'll add them in next time)

Add the sugar and mix until integrated.  Add the egg (whisk first if doing by hand) and then the melted butter.  Then add the dry ingredients.  Don't over mix.

Line a muffin tin with papers (or grease and flour, if using a loaf pan or don't have papers).  Fill pan.  Bake at 350 for 25 minutes (loaf bakes for 50 min) poke with a toothpick when it comes out
mostly clean your good.  This bread is super light in color and extremely dense.

Cool on counter with rack under, I just use the burner from the gas stove to give them a little lift.  Pop them out of the muffin tin and enjoy.  I usually will just put them in a gallon size Ziploc bag.  You can also freeze them if you don't think you'll get through a dozen muffins right away.
