The February Daring Baker's Challenge
I rarely have bananas left over but I had a few bananas the other day that were quite ripe. They were perfect for the banana bread I was planning to make for this month's Daring Baker's Challenge! Camera Guy doesn't like ripe bananas...not even close to ripe bananas...he won't touch them.....so why I ask did he eat them? YES HE ATE THEM!!!! Ok, he left one, but that isn't enough for this banana bread. It really is not easy to find ripe bananas in the store and so my friend Meredith brought me a couple of ripe bananas she had in the freezer - yes you can freeze ripe bananas. Thank you Meredith! They get a little watery but that's ok because the loaf is quite forgiving, which is why I added chunks of chocolate and a couple of tablespoons of peanut butter...I am drooling thinking about it....
The Daring Bakers’ February 2012 host was – Lis! Lisa stepped in last minute and challenged us to create a quick bread we could call our own. She supplied us with a base recipe and shared some recipes she loves from various websites and encouraged us to build upon them and create new flavor profiles.
One of the conditions for this month's challenge was that it had to be made realtively quickly - about 1.5 hours. This one is very easy...
Starring our ingredients! (the frozen bananas are in the plastic bag)
