Mom's Banana Bread

I am the queen of buying bananas, with great plans of trying to eat healthier, and five days later we have fruit flies and my bananas are brown.  Oh well!  It gives me a great excuse to make my Mom's banana bread.  She's been making this bread for years and it was one of the first recipes I ever called her to get.

Mom's Banana Bread
1 1/2 cup mashed bananas (~3 bananas)
(I put them in my KitchenAid mixer so I don't have to do it by hand. Lazy, I know.)
1/2 cup melted butter
1 egg (beaten)
1 cup brown sugar
1 tsp vanilla
1 tsp baking soda
1 tsp baking powder
1 Tbs water
1 1/2 cups flour
1/2 tsp cinnamon

Optional: 1 cup of blueberries

Bake at 350 degrees on the middle rack for approximately 90 minutes.  I set the timer for 60 minutes and then use the knife test. Just pull them out when the knife comes out clean. Let cook and wrap in foil to keep the bread moist.

There aren't any photos because every time I though of taking one I decided to eat the bread instead.  Shoot.

So I will leave you with this... Any guesses where this photo was taken?
