Banana Bread!

Since the bananas in my fruit bowl began to look like this:


I decided it was time to make one of my favorite breakfast treats – BANANA BREAD!SONY DSC

I can’t even remember the last time I made a loaf, so I was really excited to make a double batch with all of our on the edge of too ripe bananas (I guess that is what happens when I work until 9:30 or 11:30 every night in a given week…food at home doesn’t get eaten)

The recipe is self-explanatory.

Cream the butter (I use margarine) and sugar.


Add eggs and mix thoroughly.

Add in dry ingredients and milk (soured with lemon juice)SONY DSC


Finally mix in the bananas (I had to mash the bananas before mixing them into the batter because they weren’t quite ripe enough).


I bake mine at 325 for about an hour and 10-20 minutes.  I’ve found that cooking it at 325 instead of 350 does take a little longer, but bakes the middle crease better than it otherwise might.

Why did the banana go out with the prune? Because he couldn't find a date.
