I actually found this recipe last Fall over at all recipes - when I actually decide to cook - that is my go to site. I could just link you up to the actual recipe and call it good - but don't you love pictures to go with the directions? Yeah - me too!
So here ya go:
2 cups all-purpose flour
3/4 cup brown sugar
1 teaspoon baking soda
2 eggs, beaten
1/4 teaspoon salt
2 1/3 cups mashed overripe bananas (or as many as you want)
1/2 cup of buttah!!
*for a bit more flavor I added some cinnamon (a pinch?), and vanilla (umm to taste?) and of course you could add nuts - that would be really yummy!
And although I love me some bananas - they were entirely too ugly to photograph - the dry ingredients were much better - LOL!
1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C) Lightly grease a 9x5 inch loaf pan
2. In a large bowl, combine flour, baking soda and salt. In a separate bowl, cream together butter and brown sugar. Stir in eggs and mashed bananas until well blended. Stir banana mixture into flour mixture; stir just to moisten. Pout batter into prepared pan.
3. Bake in preheated over for 60-65 (mine took less)minutes/or until a toothpick inserted into the center of the loaf comes out clean. Let bread cook in pan for 10 minutes, then turn out onto a wire rack (or just leave it in the pan like me - heee)
As you can see -- I couldn't wait and had to take a slice for myself right away! I hope you like it and give it a try!
And a real quick tip for those of you that haven't visited the pumpkin patch yet. Being a scrapbooker I have always tried to dress my daughter accordingly. I used to do the orange because we were at the patch, etc. But then I was blog hopping and I happened upon a blog that had photos from their patch trip. They were beautiful - and what really struck me was that they were not wearing orange! So since then I have made an effort to get clothes that pop and "go" rather than "match"
Enjoy and have a great week!
