Banana Bread

  I woke up this morning ,looked around my kitchen and decided it was a banana bread kind of morning. So I gathered up my ingredients and this is what I came out with. It’s got a little different taste than regular banana bread because I added molasses to the recipe.

Bake it in a preheated oven at 375 degrees for about an hour or till a toothpick will come out clean when inserted. When the bread is baked set it aside till warm then remove from pan and sprinkle with powdered sugar. Slice it and sprinkle the front and back with the powdered sugar and let cool. The sugar will melt into the bread and makes the crust a little sweeter and shiny. This picture was taken before it melted so you could see better what I meant by sprinkling the front and back sides of the slices. To store your bread place in container with a cover.
