Big Old Flop

We had a bunch of bananas that needed to become bread last night.  I asked hubby to pick up some banana yogurt so I could make my typical yummy bread.  He said, “oh, there has to be a recipe in one of your mom’s old cookbooks that is good.”

So I found this book:

And found this recipe:

I started mixing and mashing.  I thought, wow, this will be a fun one to show on my blog and Pinterest.

We had so many bananas to use up that I did a double batch and put it in a 9×13 pan.

Thing is, I’m pretty sure the second half will be in the pan forever, or until I feel like scraping it into the garbage disposal.  It is so dry.  My family normally inhales my zucchini and banana breads.  No one has touched this all day.

So, I took the pictures, and I shared them with you.  I showed you my mom’s awesome cookbook from my growing up years, but I can’t recommend you actually make this exact recipe.  This trip down memory lane just did not pan out.

  1. You should try the one from the Cake Mix Doctor. I make it all the time with great results and it is so stinking easy that it should be criminal. It all starts with a yellow (of better still if you’ve got it… golden butter) cake mix. 🙂
