Your Turn, Please


I have about a half dozen bananas in my freezer just waiting for me to turn them into something. Do y'all have any fabulous recipes I need to try? Don't be shy. Even your favorite banana bread recipe is welcome- I still have yet to find one that I just love. Is there anything else I can do with my collection of very ripe bananas? And please tell me I am not the only person who sticks bananas in her freezer door when the inevitable last banana gets too ripe before I can eat it!!

You must try Magnolia's Banana Cream Pudding! Loaded with guilt and deliciousness! The recipe can be found here: http://www.recipelink.com/cookbooks/2005/0743246616_5.html

Well, I am a sucker for the Hummingbird Cake. It is delicious! Google it for the recipe - I think it calls for 4 bananas....

How about a smoothie? I don't have a specific recipe, but it's an easy way to get rid of your frozen naners and other fruits.

You could use them in smoothies! Perfect for hot summer mornings!

I've got a freezer full of too ripe bananas that I save for healthy smoothies. When I'm ready to splurge, however, this is what I use those orphaned fruit for:

BARBARA'S TROPICAL BANANA CAKE
It never fails to please!

1/3 cup butter (softened)
1/2 cup sugar
2 eggs
1-3/4 cups flour
2-3/4 tsp baking powder
1/2-1 can (16 oz) crème of coconut.
1/2 cup of raisins
1cup overripe bananas, mashed
1/2 cup of shredded coconut (sweetened or unsweetened)

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Beat softened butter and sugar together. Add eggs and mix until smooth. Stir flour and baking powder together and add to butter/sugar/egg mixture. Add crème of coconut, raisins, mashed bananas and shredded coconut, blending with a wooden spoon. Bake in an ungreased 9-inch square pan at 350 degrees for 40 –50 minutes until inserted toothpick comes out clean.

throw in food processor for 3 minutes until its soft like ice cream. Top with hot fudge.

I like grilled bananas. Just toss them on the grill for a few minutes in the skin. It brings out all the yummy natural sugars. This is actually better with the little bananas but works either way. And if you have left overs use them in that banana bread. It gives it such a better flavor!

I also stash mine in the freezer until I am ready to make something with them. I just did a post yesterday about banana bread -- it tastes great, but sometimes sinks. down in the middle.

I made Katie Lee Joel's banana bread from her cookbook and loved it. I don't have the recipe on hand right now, but you could probably google it.

Also, banana pudding is always an old standby and so yummy!

You can put bananas in the freezer?! This is exciting news to me...

If I have extra bananas I like to either make the Barefoot Contessa's Banana Crunch Muffins (I usually make them without the nuts/granola but add choc. chips - do a google search for it and you'll find it easily) or banana pancakes for dinner (just use your favorite pancake recipe and add sliced bananas). Bananas Foster is also a yummy dessert treat!

I totally do this too, and I have frozen strawberries right now, haha... I love banana bread with walnuts and chocolate chips!
