I love to experiment with baking by adding fruits, chocolates, and nuts to different muffin, bread, and cookie recipes. However, sometimes I just want to bake simple recipes really focusing on the main ingredient. I had four ripe bananas to use up so I went in search of some banana recipes. I found this banana banana bread on Allrecipes.comand decided to give it a try. I adapted it a bit by adding vanilla, cinnamon, and nutmeg but otherwise followed the recipe. The banana flavor was amazing in this loaf of bread – it was moist and absolutely delicious! Sometimes, simple is best.Banana Banana Bread: Adapted recipe by For the Love of Cooking.net Original recipe by Shelley on Allrecipes.com

In a large bowl, beat together the butter and sugar until creamy. Add the eggs, bananas, and vanilla then continue beating until well combined.
In a separate bowl, combine the flour, baking soda, cinnamon, salt, and fresh nutmeg together, mix well.
Add the flour mixture into the banana mixture and stir until just combined. Pour the batter into the prepared loaf pan.
