Got Rotten Bananas?! {Recipe}

What else are you going to do with rotten overripe bananas?

Make Banana Bread.

Here is our family's Banana Pudding Bread

1/2 cup butter - softened
3/4 cup sugar
2 Large Eggs
2 Cups All purpose flower
2 tsp baking powder
1/2 tsp salt
30 vanilla wafers (I used Cinnamon graham crackers this time.. yum!)- finely crushed (1 cup + 1 tbl)
1 cup mashed, ripe banana (I added half a cup more or so)
1/2 cup milk
1 cup chopped pecans or walnuts

Beat butter at medium speed until creamy.
Gradually add sugar, beating well.
Add eggs, one at a time, beating after each.

Combine flower and next three ingredients.
Add to creamed mixture alternately with banana
and milk, beginning and ending with flower mixture.
Mix at low speed after each addition.

Stir in nuts.

Spoon batter into greased and flowered 9x5x3 loaf pan.

Bake 350 degrees, 55 min to an hour until wooden pick inserted in center comes out clean.
Loosely cover with foil after 45 min of baking

Let cool in pan for 10 min.
Remove from pan and let cool completely.

  10. Hi,

    I followed you over from Wow Me Wednesday and I actually have WAY overripe bananas on the counter because I am Banana Breaded out. Can't wait to try this new recipe.

    I would love to invite you to share this, and any other posts you would like to, at my Creative Thursday Link Party at (Link up until Monday 4-23-12)

    Have a great day,

  11. Looks like a great recipe. I will be featuring it tonight at my Swing into Spring party that opens at 8pm EST. Please stop by and pick up an I've Been Featured button. Thanks.

  12. I'm impressed, I must say. Seldom do I encounter a blog that's
    both equally educative and amusing, and without a doubt,
    you have hit the nail on the head. The issue is something that too few people are speaking intelligently
    about. Now i'm very happy I stumbled across this during my hunt for something relating to this.

  13. Howdy! Someone in my Facebook group shared this site with us so I came to look it over.
    I'm definitely enjoying the information. I'm book-marking and will be tweeting
    this to my followers! Great blog and fantastic design and style.
