Banana Bread

What is more comforting on a chilly afternoon than the aroma of homemade banana bread?  This is a simple and delicious recipe that I got from my neighbor.  It is perfect for the overly ripe bananas that are sitting on your counter top.

Kitchen tip:  If you have overly ripe bananas, don’t throw them away!  Peel the bananas and place in a freezer bag until you are ready to use them.

Banana Bread

2 C flour

1 tsp. baking soda

1/2 tsp. salt

1/2 C butter

1 C sugar

1 C (2 medium) mashed bananas

1/3 C milk

1 tsp. lemon juice

1/2 C chopped nuts (optional)

1/2 C chocolate chips (optional)

Preheat oven to 350°.

Grease pan, mix all ingredients together and place in a 9 x 5 x 3 inch pan and bake for 60-70 minutes.  I used 3 mini loaf pans and baked for 45 minutes, until an inserted toothpick comes out clean.
