Banana Bread For Beetle

I'm sure you're reading the title of this post, and you're wondering 'has she finally gone mad?'. Let me put you out of your misery. I'm a member of an online forum. On this forum, we're like sisters. We have a common goal, and we are very supportive of each other. We pray together, cry together, and laugh together.

Like most online forums, there's the shield of anonymity. We are known by our user names. One such user is 'Beetle'.​

She asked me to make this and to blog about it. So, without much ado, this is Banana Bread.

Note: I made this with coconut milk, you can make it with ordinary milk; I just like the hint of coconut. If you make it without coconut milk, you can leave out the coconut flavoring as well.​

Ingredients

  • 1/2 cup, melted butter
  • 4 ripe bananas (the more ripe, the better. Overripe is perfect!)
  • 1 cup, white sugar
  • 1 3/4 cups, all-purpose flour
  • 1 teaspoon, baking soda
  • 1/2 teaspoon, salt
  • 2 eggs
  • 1/3 cup, coconut milk
  • 2 teaspoons, coconut flavoring
  • 1/2 cup, peanuts (optional)
  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Grease one 9x5 inch loaf pan.
  • Mash the bananas with the milk. Add the eggs, sugar, and oil. Mix well. Add the flavoring.
  • In another bowl, sift together the flour, baking soda, and salt. Add the dry ingredients to the banana mixture and stir well. Fold in the peanuts.
  • Pour into prepared loaf pan and bake 1 hour or until a knife inserted in the cake comes out clean.

Enjoy!

If I can, you can​

Hi, my name is Chidinma. I’ve been happily married for 4+ years (actually almost 6 years now), and my husband and I have been trying to have our own children for almost all the time we’ve been married, with no success…yet. We haven’t lost hope (far from it), and we believe it will happen very soon.

Camry, please feel free to replace. The black dots come from the bananas. Thanks for stopping by.
