Banana Bread

I made banana yesterday and it turned out FABULOUS! I used the good 'ol fashioned recipe from the red and white checkered Better Homes and Gardens Cook Book with only a few minor substitutions.

Banana Bread
2 loafs (small loaf pans)

2 cups flour (I used 1 c. whole wheat flour and 1 c. white flour with about 1 T. of Wheat Germ)
1 1/2 tsp baking powder
1/2 tsp baking soda
1/4 tsp. ground cinnamon
1/8 tsp. ground nutmeg (I used fresh nutmeg and used a zester to grind it)
2 beaten eggs
1 1/2 C. mashed bananas - 5 Med. (I used 3 BIG ones and it was plenty)
1 C. sugar
1/2 C. Cooking oil

1. Grease the pans and set aside. Combine flour, baking powder, baking soda, cinnamon, nutmeg and 1/4 tsp salt. Make a well in center and set aside.

2. In a Med. bowl combine eggs, banans, sugar, and oil. Add egg mixtured all at once to the flour mixture. Stir just until moistened (batter will be lumpy).

3. Bake in a 350 degree oven for 45 minutes (or until inserted toothpick comes out clean).

Mmm..mmm...mmm. It is SO good. Maddox LOVES it, too! So, double score on that one. Now, I'm going to go eat a piece with a cup of Spicy Chocolate Mint tea.

Good to see you all domesticated-like. Just kidding. Even though I don't like banana bread, I appreciate the little things you do!
