Just yesterday, in the midst of my organizing, I noticed our bananas had begun to get a bit too ripe for any of us to eat. I know there are some who really enjoy the flavor of a super ripe banana, no one in our family does though. I don’t get too tore up about it though, since this opens me up to make some delicious banana bread. Now usually I’m pressed for time when I realize the bananas are going south and just mix together a quick version with Bisquick mix, but not this time. This weekend I spent Sunday morning with the girls huddled around the counter and oven baking a loaf of Mommaw’s banana bread…with a little tweaking.
I usually get up early in the morning, long before the girls stir, if I’m going to make this recipe since it takes an hour to bake, but I want to start training the girls to make their favorite foods, care for their homes, and be personally responsible for their things so decided to have them help with the process. I encourage you to try making this homemade banana bread with your family this weekend and share a berry smoothie too!
