banana bread...

Next time you have aging bananas and plain or
vanilla yogurt on hand... make this!

Because I promise, you won't regret it!

And if you have unexpected guests arrive just in time for dinner
serve 'em this bread as an appetizer while you feed your
four month old first... they'll love you forever!

*Banana Bread*

2 cups all-purpose flour
1 tsp. baking soda
1/4 tsp. salt
1/2 cup butter
1 1/2 cups brown sugar
2 eggs
1 1/2 cups mashed overripe bananas
1 tsp. vanilla
1/2 tsp. cinnamon
1/2 tsp. ground nutmeg
1/2 cup plain or vanilla yogurt

~Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
~Spray a loaf pan with a non-stick spray.
~Combine the flour, baking soda and salt
together in a large mixing bowl.
~In a separate bowl, cream together the
butter and brown sugar.
~Add in the eggs, bananas, vanilla, cinnamon,
nutmeg and yogurt; mix well.
~Add the banana mixture to the flour mixture
just until blended. Do not over mix.
~Pour into pan and bake for 1 hour.

Oh, and next time I make this,
I'm sprinkling brown sugar on top
when it's about half-way done.

YUM, I am looking for a good banana bread recipe and this looks like a good place to start!
I prefer natural light photography too, its so annoying when I cook something or make something photo worthy at night time, and I have to wait till the next day to take a pic!
