Baking: Banana Bread



I love the smell of baking in the morning,
especially something as delicious as
BANANA BREAD!

The whole house begins to fill with the sweet aroma
and you can't wait to have a taste :}

We go through A LOT of bananas at our house,
but every once in a while they get a little more ripe then we like,
so the next step is to make some banana bread!

I use a recipe that my Step-mom gave me
and a few touches of my own ;}

Ingredients:

1/2 c. softened butter (not melted)
1 c. sugar
3 very ripe bananas
2 eggs well beaten
1 1/4 c. flour
1/2 tsp. salt
1 tsp. baking soda
1/2 c. plain oats or oatmeal
1/2 c. nuts (I use chopped walnuts)
1/2 c. chocolate chips (my special ingredient)

Preheat the oven to 350 degrees.

In a large bowl, mix butter, sugar, eggs & bananas with a hand mixer until soft (will be a little lumpy because of the bananas).

In a seperate bowl, sift flour, salt, and baking soda. Add oatmeal to dry ingredients. Mix into wet ingredients a little at a time until completely mixed. Add nuts and chocolate chips.

Pour into a greased loaf pan. Bake for 50-55 min.

Delicious! Can also be doubled :)


Enjoy,

    I have had 2 bananas ready for so bread baking but lacking the nuts. My girls said to just put our choc chips in it. I love all your pictures and can smell it already. I just hate all the work of baking and the food is gone faster than I can clean up ;)
