It was a long time coming, but I was able to keep two bananas long enough to make this bread.
I added a third browning banana to the mix. Keeping my fingers crossed on that one.
I used the whip of my hand mixer to do all the stirring as the batter was quite thick.
This recipe is one of my Grandmother’s. I used to stay over on Saturday nights and be at her house to help cook when my family came to dinner.
I am passing the tradition down to my granddaughter.
It is a great dinner when she and I can create a meal that brings back such great memories.
Can’t wait to see how this is received by my family!
I tried to fight it. I really did! But I have NO willpower. Does anyone relate?
I have been fighting my demons and keeping my sugar intake down, but Pi Day is here.
You know, the once in a lifetime day when the perfect number for the mathematical term Pi coincides with the calendar? You can’t just ignore it. Its fate. Karma.
I had everything I needed stocked in the fridge.
I had the cheesecake tubs that are already to go from the dairy section of my favorite store.
Bananas, maraschino cherries, pineapple, whip cream, nuts and oreos to make the crust were all on hand.
Even the chocolate syrup drizzled on the top was ready to go.
It was Friday the 13th! I gave in. I made a pie. Well, two actually.
They were small. No Bake. Yummy.
And I was a bit naughty. I enjoyed getting down and dirty in the whipped cream.
Come on over and have a piece!
Let me tell you my home is smelling so good!
I walked in from the garden to the sweet aroma of bananas and blueberries baking in the oven.
For a special treat for the tastebuds I added a bit of lemon zest in the batter. Yum!
I decided to add a garnish of blueberries and zest for a sweet presentation.
You can also keep it plain, add nuts, or include the lemon glaze included in this recipe.
We love banana bread in my family. I have even found the kids not eating the bananas and wait until they turn brown.
I have learned that I cannot try and freeze the ripe bananas. They turn to mush and are not good for any recipe.
By adding the sweet blueberries to the batter my bread is even moister than normal.
I love the idea of the lemon zest. It gives a hint of tartness to the bread.
I think I may even try an orange zest the next time and compare the differences.
My kids added a bit of blueberry ice cream to top of the treat.
Please let me know what you think! Enjoy.
The answer to this question may surprise you!
While uncooked eggs typically last four to five weeks when properly refrigerated, hard-boiled eggs will only last about a week.
This is because egg shells, which are highly porous, are sprayed before sale with a thin coating of mineral oil that seals the egg.
Boiling the egg washes this coating away, however, leaving the shell susceptible to bacteria.
