FaceBook Friday: Banana Bread



I have been watching these bananas for a week now, with strict orders, "Do not eat my bananas!!"

I also had pictures to accommodate the desired ripeness, but that one streak of blond hair that I have decided to kick in today.....and I am using humor with that statement. I do not want to offend anyone.

Anyway, I was taking pictures of my banana extravaganza today, and I decided to delete the photos that I didn't want on my camera.

Oh yeah, I pushed the wrong button, and just like that, all my photos were gone.

Who invented the delete button anyway???





I finally found someone to participate in my FaceBook Friday idea.

I turned to my faithful FaceBook fans and asked if anyone would be interested in having a recipe posted to my blog. The only thing is, I have to make it, taste it, photograph it, and give my opinions, but when it comes to food, my opinions are always good.

The fan that chose to participate wants to remain anonymous.

I don't know why, because this banana bread is the BOMB!! I would want to have full credit for something this good.

Well anyway, I made this, tasted it, and photographed it (with a little minor mishap concerning deleted photos).





My taste test results....This is the most amazing banana bread I have ever had.

This recipe came to me as a TNT recipe that has been in the person's family for at least two generations (that I know of), could be longer.

A couple things that I did differently is: I added chopped walnuts and a buttermilk glaze.

Sinful!!




As you can tell, I did not have any problem (taste testing) eating the whole piece....

This is magnificent!!

Banana Bread

1/2 c. Crisco
1 c. sugar
2 eggs
3/4 c. mashed bananas (I used 2 and 1/2 bananas)
1 1/4 c. flour
3/4 tsp. baking soda
1/2 tsp. salt

There were no preparation directions with this recipe, so I just combined as I thought it should be. Mix dry ingredients together. Blend Crisco, sugar, eggs, and banana, and mix in dry ingredients. Pour batter into a 9x9x2 greased pan. Bake at 350 degrees F. for 30 to 35 minutes. Mine was closer to 35.

I wanted to keep my additions separate since this recipe belongs to someone else.

Thank you very much Ms. Anonymous.

This is what I did:

I mixed 1/2 cup chopped walnuts to the batter.

The buttermilk glaze is applied after the cake is cooled.

Buttermilk Glaze:

1/3 c. buttermilk
1/4 c. sugar
2 TBS butter
2 tsp. cornstarch
1/8 tsp. baking soda

Place all ingredients in a saucepan. Bring to boil stirring constantly until thick. Remove from heat and drizzle on cake.

I sprinkled the cake with a few additional walnuts.

Good Luck~Happy Eating~Enjoy
