Banana Bread

Ok... I know... who doesn't have a banana bread recipe but this one is good and a little different. Moist, flavorful and yummy!

1 stick of butter
1 C sugar
2 eggs
2 tsp vanilla
1/2 tsp almond extract
1/2 tsp cardamon
2 Tbl vinegar
1 tsp lemon juice
1/2 tsp baking soda
1 1/2 tsp baking powder
1/4 tsp salt
4 ripe bananas (not too dark)
2 C flour

You can throw in 1 cup of chocolate chips or a cup of blueberries too to give it some pizazz!

Cream together butter, sugar, eggs and vanilla. Add bananas and incrementally add the dry ingredients until creamy and smooth. Well oil and flour bread pans or bunt pan. Bake 350 for ... until done.. and smells yummy 50-55 minutes. Make sure tooth pick comes out clean. Makes 2 loaves.
