Banana Fruit Bread Recipe

Sometimes in the past, I usually throw away overripe bananas mistaking them to be unhealthy to eat. But since I got married, Hubby have made me to see how overripe bananas can serve several purposes like Banana Yoghurt which he enjoys having, Banana chocolate cake and this recipe below, Banana fruit bread.

So if you have overripe bananas, and you’re tempted to throw them away, please don’t because it can be useful to make buttery banana bread loaded with banana flavor.

Ingredients

1 cup butter
2 cups granulated sugar
4 large eggs
1/2 teaspoon salt
2 teaspoons baking soda
4 cups all-purpose flour
6 large bananas, very ripe, mashed
1 cup dried fruits

Preparations

  1. Grease and flour 2 loaf pans. Heat the oven to 325° F.
  2. Cream together butter and sugar. Add eggs, one at a time, beating after each addition.
  3. Sift the dry ingredients like flour, baking soda, salt and dried fruits together and add to creamed mixture, beat just until blended.

How To Make Garlic Bread

Garlic bread really is some of the best stuff on earth. Although I have not had a taste, but from this given recipe, I believe it should taste great!

Ingredients
1  artisan loaf
8 tablespoons (4 ounces) salted butter, softened to room temperature
3 to 4 tablespoons minced garlic, from about 6 cloves of garlic
1/2 teaspoon garlic powder, optional
Minced parsley, for garnish

Garlic bread2

Instructions

  • Preheat the oven to 350°F. Also, line a baking sheet with aluminum foil to catch drips.
  • Cut the baguette in half: Cut the baguette in half down its length, opening it like a hotdog bun. If the baguette is too long to fit on your baking sheet, you can also cut the halves into smaller pieces.
  • Mix together the butter, garlic, and garlic powder: In a small bowl, mix together the butter, garlic, and garlic powder until they form a thick, uniform paste.
  • Spread the butter: Spread the butter evenly over the baguette halves.
  • Bake for 15 minutes: After 15 minutes, the butter should have melted and the bread will be crispy and warm.
  • Broil for 1 to 2 minutes (optional): For extra-crispy garlic bread, run the bread under the broiler for 1 to 2 minutes, until golden.
  • Slice and serve: Cut the garlic bread into individual portions, pile onto a serving platter, and sprinkle with parsley. For a family meal, cut the bread into squares; for a larger party, cut into smaller 3-bite pieces.

Recipe Notes
Reheating garlic bread: Garlic bread is really best eaten right out of the oven, but if you need to reheat it later at a party, or have leftovers the next day, pile the leftover squares in foil and bake at 300°F until warm and toasty. Leftovers reheat well once, but start to dry out after that.
