Wow, I am really behind on my posting. It's a funny cycle food blogging isn't it? I get inspired by all the wonderful recipes you all post and start experimenting in the kitchen. And then I get busy with the kids and everything else going on in my life and suddenly I realize I have a stack of photos waiting to be posted on. Oh well, after a couple of years of food blogging I have come to the conclusion that I don't enjoy it if I pressure myself to be posting all the time. The recipes will still be there for when I get a good chunk of time on the computer.
Here's a lovely recipe I found last month on Lauren's Kitchen (original post here). My son loved it so much that I made it twice within a week. He wanted it for breakfast and in his lunchbox for school. It's really easy and a great way to use up those bananas you've got frozen in your freezer.
- 1 c. sugar
- 1 egg
- 1 stick butter - I had to look this up, 1 stick = 1/2 cup butter, the 2nd time I made it I substituted applesauce for the butter and it worked great.
- 3 ripe bananas (mashed)
- 1 tsp. baking soda
- 2 c. flour
- 1 tsp. vanilla
- 1 tsp. cinnamon
- 2 or 3 peeled, chopped apples
Beat sugar, eggs and butter. Add bananas and mix together. Add baking soda, vanilla, cinnamon, and flour. Mix. Fold in chopped apples. Fill greased and floured bread pans 2/3 full. Bake at 350 degrees for 1 hour - I have a slow oven so I baked this for a little bit longer, just keep checking for when the top is nice and golden and a toothpick comes out clean when you insert it in the middle of the bread.
