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

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

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

gotta love banana bread

"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.
