I started this blog so my daughters could find all of our family favourite recipes in one place. It has actually grown into more than just the family favourites but also other recipes we've tried out in our kitchen. I don't like to fill up the post with alot of chatter. Sometimes there's a little story to tell, but usually I like to get right to the point. So this is for them, but hope you find some recipes that you like as well. I'll be sharing a lot of recipes, and along the way you'll find some crafty things and maybe some helpful hints too!

Black Banana Bread

Do you have any of these hanging around?



Did you know that you can throw them right into the freezer for later use?  Just thaw, cut the peel opened and squeeze out the defrosted banana for baking or use frozen in a smoothie. 

Or you could bake a banana loaf right now! 

For 1 loaf:

2 bananas
3/4 cup sugar
2 tsp baking soda
2/3 cup buttermilk
2 eggs
1 3/4 cups flour
2/3 tsp salt
1/3 cup oil

OR

For 2 loaves:

4 bananas
1 1/2 cups sugar
4 tsps baking soda 
1 1/3 cups buttermilk
4 eggs
3 1/2 cups flour
1 tsp salt
2/3 cup oil

OR  

For 3 loaves:

6 bananas
2 1/4 cups sugar
2 tbsps baking soda
2 cups buttermilk
6 eggs
5 1/4 cups flour
2 tsp salt
1 cup oil

Method:

Mash ripe bananas to a purée, then mix together with sugar. Beat in eggs, 1 at a time.  Sift flour, baking soda and salt.(Sifting will affect the consistency of your finished loaf).
Add flour mixture to banana mixture.  Beat 4-5 minutes.  Mix in buttermilk, then oil.  If you don't have buttermilk on hand, just add a squirt or 2 of lemon juice or vinegar to milk.  
Pour into greased 9" X 5" loaf pans.



Bake in a 275F oven for 2 1/4 - 2 1/2 hours. (Yes that is 275F)



Cool in pan on rack for 5-10 minutes. 



Warm, with butter.......
