Blender Banana Bread
1/2 cup vegetable oil
1 cup mashed bananas--about 3
1/2 tsp. salt
1 tsp. baking soda
1-1/4 cup flour
3/4 cup sugar--or less
1/2 cup chopped nuts--optional
In blender or food processor, mix first five ingredients; blend well. In mixing bowl, combine flour and sugar. Add ingredients from blender with 40 gentle hand strokes until just blended. Add nuts if desired. (Nuts can be added to blender instead for less obvious taste if desired.) Pour batter into one large loaf pan or two smaller pans that has been sprayed with Pam. Bake at 350 for 40-45 minutes. Test doneness by inserting toothpick into the middle.
