1 tsp Vanilla Extract
1 tsp Baking Soda
a pinch of salt
1/2 banana, sliced for decoration
some raisins or chocolate chips for decoration

2. Melt butter in a sauce pan or using microwave. Pour butter into mashed banana and fold using a spatula.

3. Add sugar,salt and baking soda, keep stirring using a spatula, add beaten egg. Continue stirring. Add all purpose flour and stir until smooth.
