Baby, It's Cold Outside

I'm not sure where you are, but it's pretty darn cold in Canada. Ice cream is usually the favorite "dessert" in this house, but I love freshly baked goodies while I see the snow falling outside - Also, it just makes more sense to eat something warm.

Here's a simple recipe for simply yummy banana bread! 

Preheat oven to 350F

1 c sugar
1/3 c butter or 1/4 c oil
2 eggs
1 tsp vanilla
2 very ripe bananas (Very ripe means brown, quite brown)
1 1/4 c flour
1 tsp baking soda

Cream first three ingredients. Add vanilla and bananas. Mix well, it will be a bit lumpy.
Add flour and baking soda, mix well.
Pour mixture into greased loaf pan and cook for 1 hour.

You can also add chocolate chips or nuts, or both! 1/2 c should do it!
Also, to cut down on sugar, use 1/2 c of sugar and 1/2 c of unsweetened apple sauce!


  1. I miss having banana bread! I wonder if I'm as allergic to cooked bananas as I am to raw ones.

  2. Oh, and do you know that in the Winter, in New England, ice cream sales actually go UP 30%!? Weird, huh? Like, who really wants ice cream when it's -10 degrees outside?
