baking banana bread

I am picky when it comes to eating bananas. They have to be just ripe enough but with no brown spots. My husband David is not so picky. He will gobble them up way longer then I will. The problem with this is not having old bananas for baking bread with. This last week though I bought  A LOT of bananas, hoping to have three get nice an brown.  It worked, and here is the result.

Easy Banana Bread:

1/2 c shortening

1 c sugar

1 1/2 c flour. (I use 1 cup white flour and 1/2 cup oat flour)

1 tsp baking soda

1 tsp salt

3 mashed over ripe bananas

Arora helps mash the bananas

Preheat oven to 325. Grease 1 loaf pan. Cream sugar and shortening, then add dry ingredients. Then add in the bananas. Pour into pan. I put chopped walnuts on top of 1/2. Then bake for 50-55 minutes.

The bread only lasted a day and a half, but Arora keeps asking for  “buh-nanana bread” So cute. Maybe the bananas in the fruit bowl will last long enough to be made into bread this coming week too.

  1. She looks so focussed in the pic where she’s cooking and the pic of her eating is so cute. Another thing we do if it doesn’t look like we’ll finish bananas is to break them into chunks and freeze them for smoothies.

  2. I love the photo of Arora mashing bananas. Funny, I don’t remember that about David eating bananas after they turn over-ripe. Thanks for posting an easy/yummy recipe!
