139.2…Banana Bread

When I was heating up my leftover Beef Stroganoff last night, I was not excited. My Beef Stroganoff is one of my favorite meals ever but I discovered the other night that it does not freeze well. Well, last night it tasted great! I think I stirred it more this time? I don’t know. It doesn’t matter, it tasted delicious!

Breakfast this morning was extra delicious. I made a scramble using egg beaters, chopped ham, broccoli, green onions and shredded cheddar cheese.

I had some bananas that were turning black so I decided to do something I haven’t done in awhile….bake! I made one of my favorite banana bread recipes!

Banana Bread

Slightly adapted from For The Love Of Cooking

  • 1/2 cup of butter, softened
  • 1 /2 cup of white sugar
  • 1/2 cup of brown sugar
  • 2 eggs
  • 1 cup of flour
  • 1/2 cup of whole wheat flour
  • 1 tsp baking soda
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 1 cup very ripe bananas, mashed (I used 2 bananas)
  • 1/2 cup of sour cream
  • 1 tsp vanilla
  • Preheat the oven to 350 degrees. Cream the butter, sugar, vanilla, and eggs together in a bowl. Combine the dry ingredients and mix well then slowly add the flour mixture to the sugar mixture. Add the bananas, sour cream, stir well to combine. Pour into a 9x5x3 loaf pan that has been coated with cooking spray. Bake for 1 hour or until a tester inserted into the center comes out clean. Cool on a rack.
