     Ultimate Banana Bread

Category   Desserts - Breads
Sub Category   None
Servings   8

Ingredients
1 3/4 cups all purpose flour
1 tsp baking soda
1/2 tsp salt
5 large very ripe bananas, peeled
8 Tbsp unsalted butter, melted and cooled slightly
2 large eggs
3/4 cup packed light brown sugar
1 tsp vanilla extract
1/2 cup walnuts, toasted and chopped coarse (optional)
 
2 teaspoons granulated sugar

Instructions
Adjust oven rack to middle position and heat oven to 350 degrees. Spray 8 1/2 by 4 1/2-inch loaf pan (or 9 x 5) with nonstick cooking spray. Whisk flour, baking soda, and salt together in large bowl.
Place bananas in large microwave-safe bowl; cover loosely. Microwave on high power until bananas are soft and have released liquid, about 5 minutes. Transfer bananas to fine-mesh strainer placed over medium bowl and allow to drain, stirring occasionally, 15 minutes (you should have 1/2 to 3/4 cup liquid). Transfer liquid to medium saucepan and cook over medium-high heat until reduced to 1/4 cup. Remove pan from heat, stir reduced liquid into bananas, and mash with potato masher until fairly smooth. Whisk in butter, eggs, brown sugar, and vanilla.
Pour banana mixture into flour mixture and stir until just combined with some streaks of flour remaining. Gently fold in walnuts, if using. Scrape batter into prepared pan. Sprinkle granulated sugar evenly over loaf.
Bake until toothpick inserted in center of loaf comes out clean, 55 to 75 minutes. (Check at 50 minutes if using a 9 x 5 pan). Cool bread in pan on wire rack 15 minutes, and then remove loaf from pan and continue to cool on wire rack. Serve warm or at room temperature.
