Of course, the boy does like to eat, and our version of snack may be a little larger than average.
Today, he took homemade cherry banana bread (see below for the recipe) and cantaloupe stars. It was all gone and he told me it was yummy.
What, did you think I was going to send a juice box & granola bar and call it a day? ;o)
2 cups flour
3/4 tsp baking soda
1/2 tsp salt
3/4 cup sugar **see note about this
1/4 cup butter
1 tsp vanilla
1 1/2 cup mashed bananas
1/2 cup yogurt **see note about this
Beat butter & sugar together, add eggs.
Add banana, yogurt, vanilla, blend well.
Add dry ingredients, blend until moist.
Bake in a loaf pan at 350 for approximately 50 minutes-1 hour.
You can use plain yogurt or flavored. I use flavored in complementary fruits (cherry, blueberry, strawberry, etc) and sometimes throw in a cup or so of dried or chopped fruit with it. If you use a flavored, sweetened yogurt, you can cut back 1/4 cup of sugar without a noticeable flavor difference. If you use plain yogurt, I'd leave the full amount of sugar.
