Aunty Sandy’s Banana Bread

A few weeks ago we actually had snow… can you believe it? Snow. Last week we had an ice warning and a couple weeks before that we actually had snow. Okay okay so it was a light dusting, but still…. We had snow. I think we had one snow day last winter too. So far this winter, I think I’ve warn my heavy coat twice maybe. Once was in Texas and the other was up in Kansas City. Not even around here, granted we’re only 2 1/2 hours south of Kansas City. And I just got a new heavy coat for Christmas. Anyway, I have it so I’ll be ready!

That morning when I woke up, I was in the mood to bake. I had a bunch of bananas that needed to be used for banana bread or cake or muffins or something of the sort.

When my parents went to Hawaii they brought back a banana bread mix. Now I never had enough bananas for the mix because usually I had 1-2 and this called for 5 but this day I actually had enough.

I even followed directions and mashed the bananas before adding to the mix. Usually when I make banana bread and it says to mash them in a separate bowl, I usually just peel and mash in my hand as I’m adding to the banana bread mixture. Yup, that’s me. I follow directions real well sometimes. ha! Hey, they get mashed I just don’t dirty up a bowl that way. All I have to do usually is wash my hands. But this particular day I was feeling real rebellious and mashed them in a bowl. Look at me go.

Now it called for 4 mini loaf pans but I don’t think I own mini loaf pans so I made 2 regular sized pans and just separated between the two. I had to bake a little longer but it worked out perfectly!

And this stuff was friggin awesome. Now I want to know how they made it. It was strange all I added were the bananas and some melted butter. No eggs… wonder if they used meringue powder in it? Who knows… all I know is YUM!

  1. Hi,

    Love your posts. By any chance, do you recall how much the baking mix weighed? I’m thinking of bringing some back to try and don’t want my luggage to be overweight. Many thanks

    • I honestly don’t think it was even a pound or it might have been right at that.
