Banana Bread

Anna and I leave on Thursday morning for our vacation.  I'm making sure Bill has enough food so he doesn't starve.  Tomorrow I'm making a big pot of chili for him.  I'm going to put it in freezer containers that way if he gets sick of eating chili he can just pop it into the freezer.  He has his favorites pickled eggs, pepperoni, cheese, crackers, bagels, Pepsi's and ranch flavored sunflower seeds.

I noticed that the bananas are not going to make it a few more days, time to make a loaf and it is one of Bill's favorites.  I love the smell of banana bread baking,  just might have to sneak a slice with a nice amount of butter or maybe some pineapple cream cheese.

Banana Bread
Inspired by a recipe at Cooks.com

1 1/2 cups sugar
1/2 cup softened butter
2 eggs
1/4 teaspoon baking powder
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
1/4 teaspoon cinnamon
1/4 teaspoon ground ginger
1/8 teaspoon freshly grated nutmeg
1 1/2 cups all purpose flour
3 large bananas, very ripe and mashed
1 teaspoon vanilla

Cream together sugar, butter and eggs.  Sift baking powder, soda, cinnamon, ginger, nutmeg and flour and add to wet ingredients, mix together.  Add bananas and vanilla and mix until incorporated.  Pour into a greased loaf pan and bake at 375 degrees for 1 hour.   Optional: chopped nuts 3/4 cup.

Until Next Time,
