Santa knows who has been naughty or nice and according to Santa, I'm nearing sainthood because he brought me one of the greatest gifts of all time (besides diamonds)...yep....a 6 Qt Kitchen Aid Stand Mixer.
Ladies and Gentlemen, meet my new crush, Sir Mix A Lot....
No, no, no......not THAT Sir Mix A Lot.....the Original Sir Mix A Lot...
Ahhhh......what more can a girl ask for???? ...........Except for maybe a giant bag of slightly overripe bananas. Oh my goodness, at $.59 for the whole bag of bananas, it was like Christmas all over again!!!
Armed with the bananas, I put Sir Mix A Lot to the test. 15 bananas and about 10 minutes later, we were in business:
Homemade Banana Bread, the perfect snack.
Ingredients for 1 loaf:
1 1/2 cup All purpose flour
1 tsp Baking powder
1/4 tsp Baking soda
1/2 tsp Cinnamon
1/8 tsp Salt
4 Ripe bananas
3/4 cup Sugar
1/4 cup Oil
Put the peeled bananas in the mixer bowl and mix on low speed until slightly smooth. Add sugar, eggs and oil and mix for about 2 minutes. Add the dry ingredients slowly so as to avoid a flour explosion and mix until just combined. Bake in a buttered loaf pan at 350 for about 45-50 minutes or a until toothpick inserted into the center comes out clean.
