Snack Recipes

Banana Bread/Cake

1/2 cup margarine
1 cup granulated sugar
2 eggs
3 mashed bananas (very ripe)
2 cups flour (I use whole wheat)
1 tsp baking soda
1/2 tsp baking powder
1/2 tsp salt
1 cup chocolate chips

Cream margarine and sugar together. Beat in eggs. Mix in mashed bananas. Mix in baking soda, baking powder, salt and flour. Stir in chocolate chips. pour into greased loaf pan or 8 X 8 cake pan. Bake at 325° F. for about 1 hour or until inserted toothpick comes out clean.

• Tip: If you have bananas but no time to bake banana bread, remove the peels, put bananas in a bag, and freeze them until you have the time. When thawed, the bananas are dark and mushy – perfect for banana bread.
