It's my first time to try linking to Rocks in my Dryer for "Works for me Wednesday, so wish me luck!!   Here is my best tip:  when making banana bread, mix it up in the food processor!  It only uses one bowl, which makes it simple, and the clean-up is a breeze!  Here is my favorite recipe.  It works every time!
1/4 C. butter
3/4 C. sugar
3 large bananas
1/2 C. broken pecan pieces
1 egg
2 tablespoons lemon juice
1  1/2 cups flour, mixed with 1 teaspoon baking powder, 1'4 teaspoon salt, and 3/4 teaspoon 
baking soda
In food processor, mix butter and sugar until creamed.  With machine running, add egg, then lemon juice, then slip in one banana at a time.  Let it process until well-mixed.  Turn off machine.  Add dry ingredients.  Turn on machine, and let mix until smooth.  With machine running, add pecans until well mixed.  Pour into greased loaf pan and bake in a 350 degree oven for 45-60 minutes (or until a toothpick inserted comes out clean.)  ENJOY!
