Super Simple Banana Bread

Banana bread is an amazing treat, but it requires over-ripe bananas to get that delicious taste. If you don't want to wait for your bananas to ripen naturally, you can speed up the process by popping the banas into an oven preheated to 300 degrees for about 40 minutes.

Once you have your ripe bananas, use a fork to mash 2-3 in a bowl with 1/3 cup of melted butter. Then, mix in a teaspoon of baking soda, a pinch of salt, a beaten egg, a cup of sugar, a teaspoon of vanilla extract, and 1 1/2 cups of flour. Pour the batter into a pan and bake at 350 degrees for an hour.

Once you remove the lace, you'll reveal beautiful cupcakes that appear professionally decorated. If you have a big enough piece of lace, this works great on cakes as well as long as you're willing to forgo frosting.
Spreadable Butter
Spreadable Butter
Hard butter is never helpful. Either you want softened butter for a recipe, or to easily spread it onto toast. The key to getting perfectly soft butter is to microwave it at power level 2 for 8-10 seconds. If you are using a full stick then flip is over and do another 5 seconds.
