mmmmmmm. banana bread.
comfort food to the fisher family.
i made 4 loaves yesterday (two batches) per the request of my gang.
one big one (topped with green and blue m&m’s… which the kids ate quickly… before i got a photo). and three little ones (one given to my sick mom and one given to the owner of the baseball park where mason practices).
only one left for today. this one will be gone as soon as i pick up my boy from his new sport (manager of the 13 and 14 girls basketball team at school… hmmm… is this a sport?).
1/2 c. shortening
1 c. sugar
3 ripe bananas, smashed
3 Tblsp. buttermilk
2 c. flour
1 tsp. baking soda
a few blue and green m&m’s to sprinkle over the top if you are a SEAHAWK FAN.
mix shortening and sugar. add eggs. add bananas and buttermilk. mix well, until fluffy. add flour and baking soda. mix. pour into greased loaf pan (1 large or 3 small) and bake at 325 for 45 min (small) to 1 hr (large).
feel free to add your own ingredients to this recipe. i love walnuts and mini chocolate chips. mason likes mini reeses pbutter cups mixed in. brooke likes m&m’s on top only. greg will eat anything i make.
