Seriously, here's the recipe for this very yummy banana bread. (And I am not even that fond of banana bread!) The gang scarfed this one down in no time flat.
Noble Monkey Banana Bread
In a mixing bowl, beat:
- 1 stick Softened butter
- 5 to 6 Really ripe bananas
- 2 Large eggs
- 3/4 cup Dark brown sugar (don't pack the sugar when measuring)
Mix these together in 4 cup measuring cup (pictured above)
- 1 cup Whole wheat flour
- 1 cup White flour
- 1 tsp Baking soda
- 1/4 tsp salt
Use a wooden spoon to gently stir the dry ingredients into the wet ingredients. Then the batter goes into an 11 inch round baking dish. (Mine is Pampered Chef stoneware.) Sprinkle the top liberally with sliced almonds. Bake in a 350 degree oven for about 40 minutes or until a toothpick comes out clean.
p.s. I got the brown sugar idea from allrecipes.com. I had never done banana bread with brown sugar before and I think that is what makes the difference. Anyway, check there for other recipe ideas.
