Banana Bread

An important part of getting work done around the house is having a good breakfast that doesn’t take a lot of time. Our staple has become banana bread. We always keep bananas on hand for snacks for the two-year-old of the manor. A side effect seems to be that we often have over-ripe fruit to use. The perfect solution is banana bread.

The recipe I use has been in the family for awhile–we received it as a wedding gift from my grandmother. We love eating it with a little peanut butter, which adds protein and helps it stick to our ribs.

Banana Bread

1/2 c. butter or shortening
1 c. sugar
2 eggs
6 T. milk
1 tsp. baking soda
2 mashed bananas (1 3/4 c.)
1 3/4 c. flour
Chocolate chips (optional)

Mix well, pour into three greased mini loaf pans and bake at 325 degrees for 45 minutes or until toothpick in center comes out clean.

Banana Bread

Wedding gifts are sometimes as simple as a recipe….

The recipe looks nice, especially the chocolate chips. Have you tried it with walnuts?

Hmmm… walnuts– good suggestion, Buildings Guy. I’ve never tried that, but it sounds yummy! Actually, I don’t often add the chocolate chips, either. Maybe it’s because I was raised on cheerios instead of cocoa puffs, but chocolate for breakfast is an indulgence I allow myself only rarely.
