    Its ucky today so decided to stay in, cook a gumbo and fix something sweet.

    This is the most delicious banana bread you ever tasted. I dust it with a bit of Powdered sugar, or drizzle a small bit of the "Light Grade A" on the bottom of the plate you put a slice down on.

    Its so simple, its not overly sweet, and its a delight with some cafe du lait.

    Recipe?

    Whole Wheat Banana Bread

    Ingredients:
    1 1/2 cupflour
    1/2 cupwhole wheat flour
    1 teaspoonbaking soda
    1/4 teaspoonbaking powder
    1/4 teaspoonsalt
    1 cupsugar
    1 tablespoonhoney
    2eggs
    1/4 cupbutter
    1/2 cupvegetable oil
    3 tablespoonsbuttermilk
    4mashed bananas
    1 cupnuts chopped

    Directions:


    Sift dry ingredients (the first 6), set aside. Beat eggs, oil, buttermilk, Bananas, Honey, and Steens. Combine wet and dry, add nuts if you must. Pour into a buttered loaf pan, bake at 325 degrees for Approx.1 1/2  hours. You know how to check for doness. Break off  that broomstraw.

    Cool 10 mins, loosen sides and turn out.

    Oh and its tastes better than my poor attempt at photography shows.


    Excellent with a cup of coffee.

    Oh my... Very cruel due to your buddy is on a low carb diet.  Can I smell french toast from tomorrow morning? Mrs' BD won 3rd place at the South Dakota fair on her banana bread when she was just a kid.  Ask me how many times she's made banana bread in the 34 years of marriage,  Gahead... Ask me.  b

    I hate to throw away old bananas so I always pitch 'em in the freezer. And since its Whole Wheat (but still tastee), its good for you! The whole wheat destroys all the fat calories.

    Let me guess, a rookie slip of the tongue during the first years?

    Thats why my Mom never made my Pop's favorite Pecan Pie for him. He (Thinking himself cute) told her after the first pie , which didn't set, todl her just to keep trying and someday she'd get as good as her mother. ROFL

    Well I have to say, I like the banana bread best about 10:00 w/ coffee ( it doesn't ruin the coffee being overly sweet), AND the chocolate cake anytime I walk by it...  We've gone thru a gallon of milk in a day.

    You know that Case use to live in the Sandwich Islands!

    At my last house I had some apple bananas and Chinese banana trees. Apple bananas tasted better but the Chinese bananas were an amazing little tree that would routinely put out 100 lbs of fruit from a stalk that was six feet high!!! Lots of banana smoothies and bread...

    No banana trees now though! Anything that a cow will eat I can't grow... I had some papaya trees behind my house and the cows didn't eat them but my horse did!
