banana bread of love

A while back someone asked for my roommates groan worthy banana bread. This recipe is especially special, because it comes from my grandmother's handwritten recipe book. Since she's passed away, I plan on working my way through the book in her memory.

My roommate loves this recipe, and swears by using thawed frozen fermented bananas, and adding a cup of chocolate chips (or more if I'm lucky)!

Far Away Grandma’s Banana Bread

Ingredients:
1 cup margarine
2 cups sugar
6 ripe bananas (mashed)
4 eggs well beaten
2½ cups flour
2 tsp soda
1 tsp salt

Directions:
1. Cream margarine and sugar.
2. Add well beaten eggs.
3. Add mashed bananas and stir well.
4. Add dry ingredients.
5. Pour into greased loaf pan and bake for 50-60 minutes at 325°C.

*Makes 2 loaves

"groan worthy"? as in worth the groaning that goes along with cooking or as in eating so much you groan from a full stomach?

Hello Gill the Babe, somewhat off topic, I was just wondering why you haven't been posting any comments to Robyn the Babe's blog [lol] You really should, you know.
