So you start with some VERY ripe bananas, the browner the better because they are much sweeter at this point. The bananas in the picture below are not near ripe enough, but they sure are pretty.
I started making this tonight and found I didn't have two eggs so I replaced one egg with a mix of 1 Tbsp ground flax seed and 3 Tbsp of water and let it sit for two minutes before adding it to the mix. This is the first time I've done this and it actually worked really well in this recipe. I will definitely try it more in the other recipes. Such a bonus to add a little extra nutrition to baked goods.
Preheat oven to 350 degrees
In a large bowl mix:
1/2 cup veggie oil (Memere used melted shortening)
2 eggs or substitute
1 cup mashed banana, about 2 bananas
3/4 cup sugar
1 tsp vanilla
Mix until well combined then add:
2 cups all-purpose flour, unbleached
1 tsp salt
1 tsp baking powder
1 tsp baking soda
Mix all ingredients until it just comes together. Then add any extras you might like including any of the following:
any other fruit, strawberries make it very pretty but a little more moist than I like.
Place in a loaf pan and bake 45-60 minutes. You can make muffins, or small loaves of this too without problem but you will need to adjust baking time. I've made the following with approximate times:
mini muffins: 15-20 minutes
mini loaves: 20-25 minutes
cupcake size: 20 minutes
You will love how this smells and more importantly how it tastes. Make sure to eat some warm with a little butter and you will be in heaven.
I wish you enough!
