3/4 cup plus 2 Tbs sugar
1 beaten egg
1 tsp good vanilla
Pinch of salt
1 1/2 cups flour
1/2 cup chopped walnuts (optional)
Preheat oven to 350
In mixing bowl, melt butter. Add bananas and smash them in.
Add sugar, egg, vanilla and molasses. Mix with wooden spoon.
Mix in flour. If using nuts, fold in after flour is incorporated.
And here's where the magic happens. Sprinkle the top with kosher salt. I didn't use quite a whole tablespoon. You don't want a solid layer of salt-just a good sprinkling.
Bake at 350 for 1 hour. Check after 50 minutes to see if you need the full hour.
I also made mini loafs. These cooked in about 35 minutes. I might increase the recipe by half next time so they are a little bigger.
It is a perfect combination of sweet and salty. Moist and tender. Give it a shot and let me know what you think!
Y'all come back soon!
