Banana Bread Step 1

Let's make some bread! This easy recipe is one of my favorites. It is called a quick bread, but technically it's made like a cake. This makes the texture more smooth and velvety, with a very small crumb.

Banana Bread requires 1/2 cup butter, 1/2 cup sugar, 1/4 cup brown sugar, 1 egg, 1/2 teaspoon cinnamon, 2 teaspoons baking powder, 1/2 teaspoon baking soda, 1/4 teaspoon salt, 2 cups flour, 2 ripe bananas, and 1 tablespoon buttermilk. For the topping you'll need 2 tablespoons sugar and another 1/2 teaspoon cinnamon. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F.
