Homemade Banana Bread

As a special surprise for Daniel, the girls and I decided to make banana bread. We had just the right amount of bananas that were about to go bad, and after a quick call to my favorite source of cooking advice, Betsy, we were ready to get cookin'! Danya and Gloria were excited to finally get to use their new aprons that they made last week. Here's the recipe we used:

Banana Bread
3 bananas mashed
1 C. sugar
2 eggs, beaten
1/2 C. vegetable oil
2 C. flour
1 tsp. baking soda
1/2 tsp. salt

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Mash bananas. Add sugar, eggs, and oil. Sift dry ingredients together and add to banana mixture. Pour in greased 5 x 9 loaf pan and bake 55-60 minutes.

Gloria liked making huge white clouds of flour while sifting it. Danya liked smushing the bananas and she kept singing, "Smush it like ya just don't care!" Me? I loved the heavenly smells filling the house while it was baking. It turned out to be absolutely delicious!
