    Default Banana Recipes

    Okay I was at the grocery store on Saturday and they had a huge bag of ripe bananas for 50 cents. I bought the bags and plan on making all sorts of snacks, breads, muffins, etc. with it for frugal snacks.

    Last night I made banana muffins and mini-muffins...and only used about 3 bananas. I plan on making more today and freezing some. I also want to make banana bread. What else can I make with my loads of bananas??

    This is the best banana bread that I have ever had ~ it's a little more time consuming than most but the end result is out of this world.

    Crispy Cinnamon Streusel Banana Cream Cheese Bread

    Makes 2 loaves

    Bread

    * 3/4 cup butter, softened
    * 1 (8 ounce) package cream cheese
    * 2 cups sugar
    * 2 large eggs
    * 3 cups flour
    * 1/2 teaspoon baking powder
    * 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
    * 1/2 teaspoon salt
    * 1 1/2 cups mashed bananas (about 4 medium)
    * 1 cup chopped pecan, toasted
    * 1/2 teaspoon vanilla

    Streusel

    * 1/2 cup packed brown sugar
    * 1/2 cup chopped toasted pecan
    * 1 tablespoon flour
    * 1 tablespoon melted butter
    * 1/8 teaspoon cinnamon

    1. Preheat oven to 350º.
    2. Beat butter and cream cheese together with an electric mixer until creamy.
    3. Add sugar, gradually, and beat until light and fluffy.
    4. Add eggs, one at a time, and beat until blended.
    5. Gradually add flour and next three ingredients to butter mixture, beating at low until just blended.
    6. Stir in bananas, pecans, and vanilla.
    7. Spoon batter into 2 greased and floured 8x4 loafpans.
    8. Batter will be thick.
    9. For streusel: Stir together 1/2 cup packed brown sugar, 1/2 cup chopped toasted pecans, 1 tablespoon flour, 1 tablespoon melted butter, and 1/8 teaspoon cinnamon.
    10. Sprinkle mixture evenly over batter in pans.
    11. Bake for 1 hour or until a wooden pick inserted in center comes out clean.
    12. Bread may be shielded with aluminum foil that last 15 minutes to prevent excessive browning of streusel.
    13. Cool in pans on wire rack for 10 minutes.
    14. Remove from pans and cool 30 more minutes before slicing.
    15. For perfect slices, cut with a serrated or electric knife after cooling.

    This bundt cake is very good, too!

    * 1 1/4 teaspoons baking powder

    * 1 cup sour cream
    * 3/4 cup chopped walnut

    1. In a mixing bowl, cream together butter and sugar.
    2. Add eggs, one at a time, until well blended.
    3. Stir in vanilla and bananas.
    4. In a separate bowl, combine flour, baking powder, baking soda and salt.

    This was my late mother's recipe (and I think it was grandma's recipe, but I'm not sure). I remember making this cake with mom
    30+ years ago. We always called in "Naner Cake" ...LOL.

    MOM'S BANANA (NANER) CAKE

    1/2 cup shortening
    1-1/2 cup sugar
    2 eggs
    1 tsp vanilla extract
    1 tsp baking powder
    1 tsp baking soda
    1/2 tsp salt
    1 cup mashed banana
    3/4 cup sour milk or buttermilk
    2 cups cake flour

    Cream shortening and sugar. Beat in eggs and add vanilla extract. Add baking powder, baking soda and salt. Stir in mashed bananas and sour milk. Stir in flour and blend till moistened. Pour batter into greased and floured 9x13 cake pan. Bake at 375°F for 35 minutes. Frost with white frosting (I like mock whipped cream).

    Hope you enjoy!!

    Banana Boats

    take a piece of tin foil
    peel one banana
    slice it in half lengthwise
    open it up
    place some peanut butter, chocolate chips and some mini marshmellows in side the banana

    fold the tin foil around the banana.
    place on the fire for about 5/10 minutes until the chocolate is melted.

    these are great treats for us when we are camping. put i make them at home on the grill or in the oven when the kids are really craving them.
