We grew up in a family of 8. Convenience food was too expensive and my Mom didn't think it had the health value her kids needed. We all learned to cook from scratch and love the great flavors you can develop. My sisters are all great cooks. They all come up with great ideas. My sister Meesha asked to start posting too. I have invited all my sisters to start posting. If you see a new face around here it would be my sister :)
I have to share these "Banana crack muffins". That is Lee's name for them because he thinks they are as addicting as crack (not that he has experience in that :). I love that there is a TON of bananas in this. I usually 1/2 the recipe because we have a bad habit of eating the all up too quick.
6large or 8 medium bananas VERY ripe
2 cups of sugar
3/4 cup of oil
4 cups of flour
1 tsp baking soda
2 tsp salt
2 tsp baking powder
1/2 cup walnuts chopped (we do a cup of chocolate chips and eat them for desert :)
Grease 2 loaf pans and set aside. Mash bananas well. Add eggs, sugar, and oil mix until well blended. Add flour on top mix other dry ingredients into the flour. Mix until well blended. Add nuts or chips and mix briefly (overmixing causes tunnels and coarse texture). Pour into pans. Bake at 325 for 45-50 minutes or until a toothpick comes out clean. I do muffins and cook them for about 25 minutes. ENJOY!!!
