|Banana Mini Cake|
That particular banana loaf inspired me to make my own version at home. I turned to one of my favorite recipe sites online and found an entry for "Banana Banana Bread". This is such a great recipe. Versatile, too. Since I did not have a loaf pan at my disposal, I used my mini fluted mold pan. (This reduced the baking time from 60 minutes to 35 minutes.) Also, for some variety, I added some chocolate chips and walnuts before baking. The recipe yielded delicious and cute mini cakes. I love it to bits!
Banana Banana Bread
Chip Mini Cake
2 cups all-purpose flour
1 teaspoon baking soda
1/4 teaspoon salt
1/2 cup butter
3/4 cup brown sugar
2 eggs, beaten
2 1/3 cups mashed overripe bananas
Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Lightly grease a 9x5 inch loaf pan.
In a large bowl, combine flour, baking soda and salt. In a separate bowl, cream together butter and brown sugar. Stir in eggs and mashed bananas until well blended. Stir banana mixture into flour mixture; stir just to moisten. Pour batter into prepared loaf pan.
Bake in preheated oven for 60 to 65 minutes, until a toothpick inserted into center of the loaf comes out clean. Let bread cool in pan for 10 minutes, then turn out onto a wire rack.
