I have had over ripe bananas in my kitchen on two separate occasions in the last few weeks. Every time I get set to find my Auntie Anne’s recipe, I come back and the bananas are gone! Well, this time I hid those bananas, (in my Christmas present hiding place) and went in search of that recipe. Well, I just couldn’t find it. I know it is here somewhere so I searched the web for a similar one. Smells good so far! I can’t wait to try out some others.
