Bananas....

...... warm, breezy day here, and The Missus is busily holding down the hammock in the back yard..... as for me, I'm baking......

... here's the recipe that I threw together off the top of my head.....

SWG's Banana Walnut Bread

2 cups of self-rising flour
1/2 cup of melted butter
1/2 cup of crushed walnuts
2 eggs - severely beaten
1 cup of brown sugar
3 large, mushy over-ripe bananas
1/2 teaspoon of cinnamon....

.... I melted the butter and brown sugar in a measuring cup in the microwave to begin with...... I then - in a large bowl - mashed the ever lovin' Hades out of the bananas..... don't be shy if you try this.... trust me, it sometimes feels quite good to mash something easily squashable into a messy pulp....

.... I then beat the eggs and stirred them into the smashed bananas..... added the walnuts, cinnamon, and brown sugar/melted butter...... I stirred this mess and then added in the two cups of self-rising flour......

.... I then poured the whole mixture into a greased baking pan (I used a bit of butter to coat the pan, but you could just as well use some kind of baking spray if you're a wuss.)

.... anyway, it is currently baking away at 350 degrees in the oven..... and I plan on baking it for about an hour....

.... not sure if it will actually be edible - since this is a recipe that I just winged - but it certainly is making the kitchen smell pretty damned amazing......

UPDATE:

.... well, here it is, rubberneckers...... and I ended up only needing to bake it for 50 minutes......

Bullshit So Far

"Severely beaten?" The mixer is not enough?

Hey, that don't look half bad for a ridge running hillbilly.

Long as it stands up to a cup of coffee.

.... what is this "mixer" of which you speak, Lou?...... I always just use a fork and some elbow grease.... much, much more satisfying.....

... thankee kindly, Andy..... feel free to give the recipe a whirl at your next morning baking session...
