This month we are focusing on foods that are good for taking to someone. Someone who is sick and still has a family to feed, a family with a new baby, or anyone who might need a little help.
I'm kicking this month off with Banana Bread. It is very easy to make and very yummy. Breads like this freeze well so you could make a loaf, freeze it and the person you are delivering it to can thaw it out whenever they need a breakfast or snack. This bread is great with peanut butter so you could take a jar of peanut butter along with the bread!
1/2 cup (1 stick) softened butter
3/4 cup sugar
1 tsp vanilla
1 cup mashed bananas (about 3 bananas)
1 1/2 cups white whole wheat flour
1 tsp baking powder
1 tsp baking soda
1/2 tsp salt
Cream together butter and sugar in large mixing bowl. Mix in egg and vanilla. On low speed, mix in mashed bananas. Next, mix in flour, baking powder, baking soda and salt. Pour into greased loaf pan.
Bake at 350 degrees for about 35-40 minutes. Turn oven down to 325 degrees and cook for another 10 minutes. A toothpick inserted into the middle of the bread should come out clean.
