Well guys, I broke down and turned my oven on. I know, I know. Tough work. Well I thought that since I actually made something successful that I should share it on here to prove to you that sometimes I'm domestic.
This recipe actually came from my aunt. She used to make banana bread for my cousin and me in college and it always MADE OUR WEEK. I decided to make them into muffins this time just to be different (oh, and I couldn't find any loaf pans...there was that too).
Here's the recipe. It's super simple:
Preheat Oven to 350
1 C sugar (I use 2/3 because I don't like things super sweet)
1/3 C butter
6 ripe bananas
1/3 C water
1 2/3 C all purpose flour
1 tsp baking soda
1/2 tsp salt
1/4 tsp baking powder

You want your batter to be kind of lumpy. You don't need to use a mixer, but if you do, just make sure to mix everything as little as possible:
See what I mean about lumpy?
I always freeze my bananas first. We can never eat a whole bunch of bananas before they get too ripe, so the too ripe ones go in the freezer. If you use frozen bananas, just make sure to cut the peels off first and to defrost them a bit.
If you do that, you'll end up with what I like to call the "pile of death" on your cutting board. Thought I'd include a picture of that too.
Probably go look at that first picture again so you can end on a good note and actually want to make them. OK?
