I’m still itching to share my Grilled Tuna Melt Recipe, and I’m hoping that’ll be next weeks’ post, but for now, I’ll share one that’s purely comfort food.
Banana loaf! (Or, as we call it in our house, banana bread!)
I’ve had two medium bananas sitting in my freezer since the end of July; I figured now was the time to use them up. It’s cold and rainy here these days, and it filled a small portion of a long and boring day at home with the twins yesterday.
This recipe came from a recipe book that was given to us on our wedding day. It’s pretty tasty! The recipe called for chopped walnuts (optional, of course), but I substituted them for chocolate chips. I’m not a fan of walnuts.
1 3/4 C flour
2 tsp baking powder
1/4 tsp baking soda
1/2 tsp salt
1/3 C butter (I used margarine)
2/3 C white sugar
2 eggs, beaten
1 C banana, mashed
1/2 C chopped walnuts, optional
Sift together flour, baking powder, soda and salt in bowl. Cream together butter, sugar, then add eggs in a separate bowl. Add mashed banana and flour mixture to creamed butter mixture. Stir in walnuts, if desired. Pour into greased Loaf pan. Leave stand in pan for 20 minutes, then bake at 350°F for 50 minutes.
How do you like to spend cold and rainy days at your home?
