I started this post a few hours ago, then left the room to go make dinner. Little did I know my 7 year old son, got on my computer and typed his little heart out. Then he managed to hit the publish button. It posted for a few hours, and I did not even know. I about died when I came out to work on it and saw it posted…. Looking all crazy!!!! So sorry for any confusion.
One of the best ways to be Thrifty is to reduce waste. I hate brown bananas, they make me gag, but they make wonderful banana bread, or pop them into the freezer and make a fruit smoothie with them.
Cream cheese banana bread
In a bowl mix,
- 3/4 cups softened butter
- 1 (8oz) cream cheese softened
- 2 cups sugar
Mix till well blended then add
- 2 large eggs
In another bowl mix dry ingredients
- 3 cups flour
- 1/2 teaspoon baking powder
- 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
- 1/2 teaspoon salt
Slowly add to wet ingredients, Don’t over mix it…
Once you have dry ingredients mixed in, add
- 1 and 1/2 cups mashed bananas ( about 4 bananas)
- 1 cup pecans (optional)
- 1/2 teaspoon vanilla
You can make muffins or bread, I always make 12 muffins and 1 loaf of bread. Bake the muffins at 350 degrees for 25 minutes. Cook the bread for 1 hour on 350 degrees. Make sure the middle is done before you take it out of the oven. Test it with a toothpick if it pulls out clean it should be done.
