Banana Bread

Banana Bread
If you are like me, you hate it when you spend $$$$ on food and it goes to waste.
Fruit, if not eaten within a few days will spoil.
Here is a way to save and eat that fruit.

Banana bread.
Yes, I know, not low on carbs. But for me, I never had to worry much about my waistline.
Plus, my daughter and I both have that sugar tooth.

1 cup of sugar, you can substitute with 1/2 cup of Splenda.

1/2 cup of butter

1 tsp. of baking soda

3 tbsp. of hot water
3 overly ripe mashed bananas

1tsp. of salt
2 cups of flour

Dissolve the baking soda in the water. It forms a slurry.
Mix all the ingredients with the slurry until all
the ingredients are fully incorporated.
Place in a baking pan or aluminum foil pan.
Preheat an oven to 350 degrees.
Cook for 1 hour or until golden brown.
You can check to see if if is fully cooked
by placing a tooth pick in the center of the bread.
If the tooth pick comes out easy and clean,
the bread is done.

For added measure, try mixing in  a 1/4 cup of
chopped walnuts to the bread mixture and sprinkling a tsp. of
sugar on top of the bread before baking.

Like my daughter always says to me after watching the "Regular Show"
on the Cartoon Network:
"Give me some SUGAR"

Here you are Kierann,
Love Daddy.

P.S. Eat your bread.
