Let’s Bake

Easy Banana Bread

In our house there is usually always something freshly baked. I’m frugal. I love to bake and so do the kids so it’s something we do regularly.  But I love easy recipes even more.

Baking not only teaches them self sufficiency, but there is math involved. Reading. Not to mention the fine motor skills it requires to actually whip up our household favorites.  I have baked with them since the time they were babies.  It’s an important skill to learn considering you can’t always trust what you buy in the grocery store.  Speaking only for my kids I notice behavioral changes with their diets.  There are certain items we avoid.

With two kids and sensory challenges finding foods that they would eat has been a challenge.  Just when I think I have it all figured out they decided that something they’ve been eating for years has the potential to poison them.

Banana Bread is one of those things I regularly have on hand.  It’s a simple recipe.  Easy for little helpers.  And tastes exceptionally good with butter.  (I’ve also cut the sugar in half and the kids haven’t noticed)

Banana Bread

4 overripe bananas (I choose to freeze mine since my kids are notorious for only eating a 1/3 of a banana)

1 cup sugar (or 1/2 cup brown/1/2 cup white sugar)

1/2 cup butter (melted)

2 eggs (Thanks to my sweet hens I haven’t purchased eggs in almost 7 months)

3 tbsp milk

2 tbsp vanilla

1 tsp baking soda

Mix all wet ingredients together. Then the dry ingredients.

Bake 50-60 minutes at 350 degrees.

There isn’t much too it. Nothing fancy. It tastes delicious and the kids love to make it.

I hope you enjoy it.
