2 cups all-purpose flour 1 teaspoon baking soda 1/4 teaspoon salt 1/2 cup butter 3/4 cup brown sugar 2 eggs, beaten 2 1/3 cups mashed overripe bananas 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. Pour batter into prepared loaf pan. 3.
Bake in preheated oven for 60 to 65 minutes, until a toothpick inserted into center of the loaf comes out clean. Let bread cool in pan for 10 minutes, then turn out onto a wire rack.
If you have been purchasing 'banannas' you should know that they ripen very fast due to the extra 'n' chromosone in the name. Make a smoothy in the blender with one of these goo sticks. Add a little milk, vanilla ice cream... Or cookies or bananannana nut bread. Or as I do, throw them in the garbage and next time remember to buy them greener and half as many.
Banana fritters are lovely, but very fattening I might add. Make some batter, roll the bananas in the batter and deep fry for a couple of minutes. Lovely with vanilla ice cream. You can do the same with old apples.
Time for the compost pile IMO. I'm an Atheist and a gardener, my wife is Jewish and a marathon runner so it's a battle sometimes to see who'll eat them. The bugs or her.
Peel and put in the freezer. Then just pop one or two in the blender with some OJ and whatever other fruit you got around for a nice cold smoothie.
Or use in baking like MrsJones said.
You gotta eat'm fast. My wife made a banana shake this morning for my son and I.
