Overripe Bananas but no time for Banana Bread? Try Muffins

“Momma, I’m hungry. I would like banana bread.”

Knowing my four year old wouldn’t enjoy waiting nearly two hours for a slice of homemade banana bread, and seeing my overripe bananas that could old be fit for a bread or the trash, I turned to the muffin recipe!

It was actually pretty simple.

It comes from the cookbook Tastes and Flavors of Hawaii and I highly recommend it.

All you need is

1/2 c shortening or butter

1 c sugar

1 1/4 c flour

1 tsp baking soda

1/2 tsp salt

1 c mashed bananas

Butter/shortening and sugar, add dry ingredients and bananas alternating as mixing in, spoon into 12 muffin cups and bake at 350 for 15-20 minutes.

That’s it. Just like banana bread but quicker.

Later I’ll blog about my experience tapping into the art of pasta making. It is not as fast and easy and definitely an Art I have not mastered (but it was my first try). I hope you’ll follow me to see how it went!
