Banana Recipes

Banana Bread
(Makes 1 large or 2 small loaves)

3 cups sugar
1 cup butter, softened
4 eggs
2 teaspoons vanilla
3-4 ripe bananas
4 cups all-purpose flour
1 teaspoon baking soda
1 cup milk
Poppy seeds (optional)

In a large bowl, beat all ingredients together in the order given. Spoon into one large or two small greased and floured loaf pans, and bake at 350 degrees for 30-45 minutes or until a tester comes out clean.

Bananas in Pineapple Juice
(Tasty fruit dish for an al fresco brunch)

One banana per person
Unsweetened pineapple juice (canned, or prepared from frozen concentrate)

Slice bananas into attractive bowls and garnish with a sprig of mint. Pass around a pitcher of pineapple juice as you would for milk and cereal. (Guests can sprinkle on a little sugar if they desire).
