Banana Bread

What do you make with left over Banana's? Then I got this very simple recipe from Simple Recipe's. And right now I am off to make another one. I pray for my banana's to go brown and mushy soon. I did not use a mixer to blend the banana's. I just mashed the banana's with a fork.

Banana : 2-3 (Ripe and almost brown)
Melted Butter :1/3 cup
Granulated Sugar : 3/4 cup (Can reduce it to 1/2 cup or increase to one cup according to your desire of sweetness)
Instant Coffee Powder/ Expresso : 1 tbsp
Whisked Egg : 1
Vanilla Extract : 1 tsp
Baking Soda : 1 tsp
Salt: a pinch
All Purpose Flour : 1.5 cups

Garnishing :
Sliced Almonds : 1 tbsp (You can mix a little with the batter too)
Choco Chips : 1 tbsp (You can mix a little with the batter too)

Procedure :
1. Preheat the oven to 350 degree Fahrenheit.
2. In a bowl mash the banana's , mix with melted butter, sugar, egg, vanilla extract, baking soda, Coffee Powder and salt.
3. Mix in All Purpose Flour with it and pour it in your bread loaf pan.
4. Garnish with the sliced almonds and choco chips.
5. Bake for around 30-35 minutes. Insert a toothpick and check if it comes out clean. Mine took 40 minutes to bake. Please make sure to insert your toothpick in the center as the sides get baked soon.
