Butter Roasted Bananas, Banana Bread
Roasted Bananas, Banana Bread
Banana Bread, with Pan Roasted Bananas
by the seat of my pants!
350-degree oven

6 large very ripe bananas
1/4 c butter
1/2 c sugar
1/2 c brown sugar
1/4 c oil
1/4 c milk
2 eggs
2 c flour - whole wheat flour works great here!
1 tsp baking soda
1 tsp salt
1 1/2 c walnuts, chopped small (I think that helps keep the slices intact)

Combine 4 bananas and the butter in a skillet. Saute over medium heat until golden. Turn as needed. When soft cut into smaller chunks, continue turning to brown all surfaces. When all sides are golden brown, remove skillet from the heat source and allow the pan-roasted bananas to cool.

Combine the remaining 2 bananas in a large bowl along with the sugars. Use a fork to mash the bananas and sugars together. Add eggs, milk, and oil. Stir to combine all ingredients making sure the eggs are well incorporated into the mixture.

Combine the flour, salt, and soda in a medium bowl. Whisk to distribute soda and salt throughout the flour.

Gently mash the cooked bananas with a fork Stir the cooked bananas (along with the browned butter) into the banana milk mixture. Stir well. Add the flour mixture to the bananas. Stir well to combine. Stir in the chopped walnuts.

Pour into a prepared loaf pan.  Bake 350 degrees for 45-55 minutes until tests done, in your oven. Let cool in the pan 10 minutes, turn out onto a rack or towel and allow to cool completely. This bread is delicious, a good keeper.
