Banananana Bread

Rainy days are the best time  for chicken noodle soup or chili or chocolate chip cookie or a cup of hot tea. For me, rainy days = bake time!

You see, my smart idea of buying-extra-banana-so-that-we-would-have-enough-of-it-until-end-of-the-week plan did not work out so well. It's Wednesday and three very aged banana are attracting fruit flies like no other. So making banana bread was my brilliant idea for rainy days.

Here are the casts: brown sugar, white sugar, flour, flaxseed, baking soda, salt, cinnamon, all spice, yogurt, butter ,eggs, and banana!

Combine yogurt, melted butter (a vital ingredient that I almost forgot), eggs, and sugar.

Then fold in the dry ingredients.

The bananananana bread recipe:

1.5 cups all-purpose flour
1/4 cup flaxseed
3/4 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
1/8 teaspoon allspice
1.5 cups mashed banana
1/2 cup brown sugar
1/2 cup white sugar
2 eggs
3 tablespoons butter, melted
1/3 cup yogurt

1. Mix flour and the first few 6 ingredients (through allspice) together, set aside.
2. Mix banana, sugar, eggs, butter, and yogurt until well combined.
3. Combine dry and wet ingredients together, don't over mix.
4. Pour the batter in a 9x5 loaf pan. Bake for 55 minutes or so at 350.
5. Wait 10 minutes for bread to cool, cut yourself a slice, enjoy.

p.s. I forgot to add in butter (it was sitting in the microwave) until the batter was in the over for 15 minutes. I pulled the pan out and added the butter with a fork into the gooey batter. It worked.
