why i heart rotten bananas

in our house every time a banana goes rotten it is sent straight to the freezer. then, every few months when they start taking over i give in and make heaps of banana bread. YUM. its one of my favorite things. i usually hate banana flavored anything, but i heart banana bread.

here is the recipe i use:

Banana Bread

makes two loaves

  • 2 cups flour
  • 1 tsp baking soda
  • 1 tsp baking powder
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 2 eggs
  • 1 cup sugar
  • 4 very ripe bananas
  • 1 tsp vanilla
  • 1/2 cup vegetable oil
  • 1 tsp cinnamon
In a medium bowl combine flour, baking soda, baking powder and salt. In a large bowl cream together eggs & sugar. Stir in mashed bananas, vanilla, oil, and cinnamon. Stir in flour mixture a third at a time until just combined.
Divide into 2 - 9x5 loaf pans. Bake at 350 for approximately an hour (watch this closely - mine always take closer to 45 minutes)


P.S. did i tell you we are moving to columbia, missouri in January?? and that i got an INTERVIEW at the nursing school?? kind of exciting/nerve racking. i was on the phone all day yesterday with mortgage brokers to see if our broke-asses can buy a house.

Congrats on the interview! It is a total bummer that as soon as we are moving back to town you guys are headed the other direction across the country!! I know it's for the best but darn it!

I just threw out 22 brown banananananas that had been in my freezer with the hopes of banananananana bread. I should have shipped them to you. Eric
