Do you have some of those yucky brown bananas lying around. So do I … or so DID I. Once they start to turn a little brown and spotty the kids won’t touch them and I actually just keep them around until they turn really brown and gross looking. It is only when they are brown and gross that their potential to make really fantastic banana bread is unlocked.
I like a little chew to my banana bread. So many recipes are like heavy and sometimes greasy cake and some people prefer that, but I like it to be a little more like bread. This recipe is also super, dooper quick to whip up. Plus, I have a thing for butter and this recipe has butter instead of oil. Again, score, score, score, for this banana bread recipe.
Unfortunately, this banana bread doesn’t last very long and we have to restart the waiting game for the yucky brown bananas again. The worst possible scenario is when you only have one brown yucky banana, because it isn’t enough to make banana bread and it is still an eyesore in the kitchen. (These work great for smoothies, I know, but it is still a disappointment that there is no banana bread in the equation.)
