Use well ripe bananas in winter days

It’s cold outside, so I turn the oven on again, and get ready to bake.

Two weeks ago, I wrote about making a loaf of yeast bread. Today you will not need any yeast. This banana bread uses baking powder as a raising agent.

When Bob and I got married in 1973, a neighbor gave us a cookbook from Mokena Homemakers. The front cover is long gone, along with many front pages, and spots on the best recipes are everywhere.

I think some of the best cookbooks are the ones collected by groups for fundraising. In those groups, people shared their favorite family recipes. My banana bread recipe looks lousy, after nearly fifty years of use, but it’s my favorite so far. Thank you, Mrs. Honeyford, for this special wedding gift.
