Peanut butter banana bread

Peanut butter banana bread
Originally uploaded by ABMann.
I baked today. We had bananas that went squishy which means banana bread.

Recipe:
1 3/4 cups AP flour.
1 teaspoon baking soda.
1/2(ish) teaspoon salt.
2 large eggs.
1 cup sugar.
3 bananas mashed.
1/2 cup peanut butter.

Mix first three ingredients in a bowl. Set aside.

Cream butter and sugar until fluffy. Slowly incorporate eggs.

Mix bananas and peanut butter. Add honey as desired. Add bananas to egg goo and mix. Add dry ingredients to wet and mix until just brought together. Since it's a quick bread, do NOT over mix or it will be chewy and tough to eat.

Bake for 55ish minutes at 350.

I haven't tried it yet. I'm vaguely concerned because I randomly added salted, natural peanut butter to the mix. Hopefully the tablespoon of honey I added will sweeten it as will the extra sugar (usually you use 1/3 a cup less on these recipes.

It certainly smells lovely.
Edit: Oh man. It's really, really good. I'm glad I added the honey. It is a brighter sweetness than sugar alone. And the peanut butter adds such a nice hearty heft to the bananas.

Have I mentioned that your food posts make me want to drool all over you?
Really.
Even though I don't really like peanut butter.
Or honey.

That seems like incentive to keep doing them. I think it's the photos. Well, the photos when I use my DSLR. The fried green tomato pics weren't great. But, wow, were they tasty.

I don't think I've ever met anyone that didn't like honey. What the hell is wrong with you?!?!!

See, I liked honey when I was little. Now, when I taste it, it makes my stomach turn. Peanut butter is different, I eat it sometimes, but I don't really like it all that much or ever really -want- it. It tastes fine, but eh.

If I had a camera, I'd take pictures, too. I made BBQ sauce tonight and I can't wait to grill with it!

Seriously though, it sounds yummy

It is. :) Maybe a tad sweet but still impressive. I think it would be nice with marscapone cheese or a scoop of vanilla ice cream.

Gimmee!

I heart banana bread AND peanut butter - but never thought of combining the two. Yum!

Nor had I until I googled it and found a recipe to base it on. It is tasty. You should make some. :)

NOOOO

You killed the Peanut Butter Jelly dancing banana to make that, didn't you? Don't deny it, I can see the jelly you're hiding behind your back.

He smells cremated. And delicious, I bet.

Perfect timing! I have squishy bananas, and I'm tired of my regular chocolate chip banana bread. Tomorrow, smart_ass_sub and I will be feasting!

I suggest cutting back on the sugar a bit even if you don't use any honey.

I bet it would be good with chocolate too. :)
