This year Zippy decided that she wanted to work on a badge at home for her American Heritage Girls and she chose cooking. Now, I totally approve of this endeavor, as it means we get to eat lots of yummy food. She got started this week by making banana bread. It is her dad's favorite.
Here is the recipe, in case you want to make it too:
3/4 c. softened butter
1 1/2 c. white sugar
1 1/2 bananas (mashed)
1 tsp. vanilla
2 c. flour
1 tsp. salt
1 tsp. baking soda
1/2 c. sour milk (add 2 tsp. vinegar to milk to make it sour)
Cream together butter and sugar
Blend in bananas, eggs and vanilla
Sift together flour, salt and baking soda.
Add dry ingredients alternately with sour milk, blending until just well combined.
Pour into two greased loaf pan and bake at 350 degrees for 1 hour.
