Banana bread

4 frozen bananas


Place frozen bananas in the bowl of a food processor.
Pulse several times to break into smaller pieces, then turn on and run for about five minutes, stopping occasionally to scrape down the sides of the bowl.
The bananas will start to resemble soft serve in a few minutes.
Transfer to a bowl and place in freezer for about 15 minutes, if you'd like, or serve immediately. (Makes four 1/2 cup servings)

Bananas freeze well, just put them in the freezer with the skin on and use at a later date for baking etc.

Tin goose cafe banana bread. Very yummy and freezes well. You can find the recipe on here. Just use the search box., Sep 17, 8:48am
My friend once had a plethora of bananas when we were visiting so she made us a lovely dessert which was basically bananas sliced lengthways or in smaller pieces, sauteed in butter in a frying pan. She then added some brandy and flamed it.
Personally I just sautee them in butter for a few mins then add some cinammon and maybe a bit of brown sugar, lovely served with cream or icecream and a good way to use them up in one go. My kids love it like this.

Here's a couple of dessert options for you sammy_girl.

2-3 cups stewed apples
Place the apples in a 22cm x 13cm pie dish and place the dish in a preheating 190°C oven to heat whilst preparing the
Sponge Topping:
125g butter
½ cup sugar
1 egg
1 small banana (mashed)
¾ cup flour
2 tsp baking powder

Cream the butter and sugar.Add the egg and beat well, then add the banana, followed by the flour and baking powder.Mix well, then evenly spoon the mixture on top of the boiling apples.
Bake at 190°C for 30-40 minutes.
Sprinkle with icing sugar and serve hot.
Serves 5-6.

3 sliced bananas, chunky sliced
1 tsp baking soda
150ml hot water
125g butter
¾ cup sugar
2 eggs
1 heaped cup self-raising flour

In a bowl stir together the baking soda and water.
In a food processor or bowl beat together butter and sugar until creamy. Add eggs one at a time, beating until light and fluffy, then add the baking soda and water. Stir in the flour, then bananas. Pour into a small lasagne-type dish (25cm x 20cm approximately).
Bake at 190°C for 30-35 minutes, or until a skewer inserted into the centre of the pudding comes out clean.
Allow the pudding to stand in the dish while you prepare the

Toffee Sauce:
3 cups loosely packed brown sugar
75g butter
300ml cream
1 tsp vanilla essence

Combine all the ingredients in a saucepan and stir over a medium heat until the sugar is dissolved. Bring to the boil. Turn down the heat and simmer for 5 minutes.
Pour a little of the sauce over the cooked pudding, then put it back in oven for a few minutes to allow the sauce to soak in and bubble to a golden-brown colour. If stored in the fridge the sauce will become thicker.
Cut the pudding into squares or wedges.
Serve with extra sauce and lightly whipped cream.
Serves 4-6. :-))
