Why is it that the only time people make banana bread is when they are left with very ripe bananas? It's unfortunate that banana bread is very often an after thought, something you do with brown bananas. Banana bread is so quick and easy, it deserve more attention.
I recently made a delicious and healthy banana bread, which I planned before the bananas went south. The healthy side is due in part to using whole wheat pastry flour. The delicious part is all banana. Go buy some bananas and give it a try.
Banana Bread Day is February 23rd
1 cup brown sugar
¼ cup butter, softened
3 ripe bananas, mashed
½ cup sour cream
1 large egg
1 egg white
2 cups whole wheat pastry flour
1 teaspoon baking soda
½ teaspoon salt
Preheat oven to 350. Combine sugar and butter in a large bowl until well blended. Add bananas, sour cream and eggs. Mix well. Combine four, baking soda and salt in a bowl. Stir well. Add the flour to the banana mixture. Stir until well blended. Pour into a 9 inch loaf pan which has been coated with cooking spray. Bake for 1 hour or until done.
