Sometimes, every once in a while, you hit the jack pot. Yeah, the sweet discovery of a great find! The rush. The excitement. The sweaty palms. You KNOW what I am talking about. Once you put your “treasure” in your shopping cart…………that special spring in your step. I came across these beauties…………………
40 of them………..just waiting for ME to pay $2.00 and take them home!!!!!!!!!!! Be still my heart! Yes, you read that correctly, I struck gold. I found two bags of 20 each and each bag was only $1.00. WOOT WOOT!!!!
I rolled up my sleeves, put on my adorable April Cornell apron and magically turned those beauties into these beauties: The recipe is a snap and turns out wonderful. Take 3 large bananas, mashed. 3/4 cup brown sugar, 1 stick of butter (or earth balance). Mix together. Add: 2 cups of flour, 1 teaspoon baking soda and 1 teaspoon salt. Here you can add chopped up walnuts if that is to your liking. Place that into two loaf pans. Bake at 350* for 45 to 50 minutes. Done and done. Come up with great people in your life that you want to share with. Who among us doesn’t enjoy a freshly baked loaf of goodness?
Grab a napkin, cut into one of these beauties for you and your family, Say GRACE, and for the love of pure banana goodness, Dig In.
