What do you do with overripe bananas?
Some of you may throw them out, but my wife makes the best banana bread I've ever tasted. You have a great breakfast or afternoon snack topped with a bit of butter or cream cheese.
Add a little ice cream and banana bread a la mode for dessert.
It couldn't be easier. Usually, at least one of the girls volunteers to help. Best of all, we can pack a slice or two for the girls to take to school for snack time.
Banana Bread Recipe
- Start by preheating you oven to 350° F.
- In the above order, combine the ingredients in a mixing bowl (I use a Cuisinart). Mix by hand (or by Cuisinart) until it forms a thoroughly blended batter.
- Transfer the batter into a greased loaf or bread pan.
- Bake until done, usually about one hour. An excellent way to tell if the bread is done is to stick it with a toothpick. If nothing sticks to the toothpick, it is done.
