I can't cook but I can bake like a MO FO

So I had some left over bananas sitting on my counter that were way too ripe to eat. So I decided to make some home made banana bread. After scanning the internet for a while looking at the basic ingredients for the bread I decided to make my own version. Lets just say I will be making this again because it was the best banana bread I have ever had in my life.

3 ripe bananas
1/3 cup melted butter
1 cup sugar
1 1/2 cup flour
1 egg beaten
2 teaspoons of cinnamon
pinch of salt
1 teaspoon of baking soda
two generous scoops of sour cream (maybe 1/2 cup)
Handful of chocolate chips
handful of walnuts

Step one: Preheat oven to 358F

Step two: Mash your bananas with a wooden spoon or what I prefer to use...

Step three: Mix in sugar, egg and cinnamon to mashed bananas

Step four: Add baking soda, salt and sour cream. Mix well then add chocolate chips and walnuts.

Step 5: I like using rectangular baking dishes, so I would suggest a 4X8 baking dish for your mixture. You could be boring and use a square if you'd like.

Step 6: Bake for one full hour.

Step 7: Take out of oven and let cool for a few minutes, cut yourself a slice and NOM NOM NOM


  1. This sounds great!! :) I have always been a baker and always loved it!We both love to cook but my husband went to culinary school so he he is far better and creative than I am sometimes. He, however, is not so good at the baking thing, since you have to be more specific on measurements than when you cook :)

  2. Kristina, I feel ya! My husband is Italian so he does most of the cooking while I do all of the baking.

  3. I hate to cook....I love to bake....but...I can't bake too often cuz I also love to eat what I bake....yeah...fat city.

  4. I can't cook either but I recently baked cookies that were really good! People are telling me to get into baking :)

    Thanks for visiting my blog :)

  5. OH MY GOSH, Brittany, I bought the Michael Buble Christmas CD after you mentioned it and I CAN'T STOP LISTENING! Sooo good! Thank you so much for the awesome recommendation!

  6. Me again :) Just surfing around your site (from the comment love Sunday at For the Love of Blogs) I love to cook but have never really been a baker...but this recipe looks super easy! And no flour for the bread? I can't wait to try this recipe. Thanks for sharing!

  7. Thanks for sharing your comment on my Mama Bear Gets Chatty blog...about the Printable Countdown to Santa's Arrival.

    We LOVE banana bread at our house! When bananas go brown, I stick them in the freezer for using later. When it's time to bake, I simply get the bananas out in time for them to thaw, and then once they're thawed, you can just snip off one end and squeeze the banana right out into the measuring cup. SUPER easy! :-)

  8. I following you by gfc from the Give a hoot Hop. I'd love if you'd stop by and follow me back. Have a great day!
