For the last few days I've had two bananas slowly getting more ripe by the day. I specifically told the man, "Don't eat those!" just so I could bake something delicious. I rarely get to bake with bananas because, really, he eats everything, even ripe bananas. While these were ripening I had to decide what to make with them.
1 1/2 cups flour
1/2 cup sugar
2 ripe bananas, mashed
1/2 cup oil
2 teaspoons baking powder
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon cinnamon
1/3 cup pecans, chopped (optional)
Preheat the oven to 350 degrees. Lightly grease the pan of your choosing.
Cream the sugar, bananas and oil together in a mixer. Add the eggs, one at a time. Add the flour, baking powder, salt and cinnamon. Mix well. If you're adding nuts you can stir them in now, or just layer them over the top like I did.
Bake for 40 to 45 minutes, or until an inserted toothpick comes out clean. Enjoy!
