Banana nut bread...
1/2 cup butter (or 1/2 cup of mashed banana) See notes below...Health-conscious
1 tsp vanilla
1 tsp of baking soda disolved in 4 Tbsp of milk
2 cups flour
3 bananas (smashed)
1/2 cup of nuts (optional)
To start with add baking soda to milk set a side and smash up your ripe bananas. Cream butter and sugar, add eggs and vanilla. Add the flour, soda mixed with milk and bananas....mix well and last add the nuts of your choice. Walnuts and pecans work great as well as taste great in this bread. This recipe makes three small loaves or one large one. The baking time for the small loaves in arounf 45-50 minutes, I find when I do a large loave it takes longer to get the center completely done. Around 60-65 minutes. To keep bread from getting to dry or brown the last 15 mintues I cover the loaf with a sheet of tin foil.Bake at 350 degrees...
1 cup powdered sugar
3 tbsp. liquid (milk - water - fruit juice, etc.) I use milk
1/4 cup of dried banana chips grounded (I use small coffee grinder)
Mix all the ingredients and spread on warm bread......
