Hi Housewives!

Today’s recipe is for delicious banana bread.  “Rosie Goes Bananas” is my BFF’s recipe.  She makes it all the time and her husband goes ape over it!  LOL

“Rosie” or Roseann is one of my best friends.  Her brother and I went to Kindergarten together and that’s where our moms met and became best friends.  I really have never known life without knowing Roseann.  Our mothers were the best of friends and I think they are happy that we have each other in their absence.  I remember growing up our phone would ring at exactly 4pm after “General Hospital” and it was Roseann’s mother Tina calling my mother to talk, gossip, and laugh.  They had their own secret language and I would sit there listening to their grown up convo everyday for years.  Unfortunately, both of our mothers were taken from us way too soon at different times.  Maybe that brought us closer together, who knows, but as adults we have become more like sisters than friends.  She is the little and sometimes annoying sister, I always wanted.  We share everything, clothes, accessories, and of course recipes!  We both try to remember our moms recipes and swap them all the time.  She loves to cook just as much as I do.  So with that being said here is “Rosie Goes Bananas” recipe for banana bread!

  • 1 stick of melted butter
  • 1 cup of white sugar
  • 1 1/2 cups of all-purpose flour
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1/2 cup of sour cream
  • 2 medium bananas, sliced
  • 2 eggs

Preheat over to 350. Grease a 9×5 inch loaf pan.

In a bowl, mix together the melted butter and sugar.  Add the eggs and vanilla, mix well.  Stir the flour, baking soda and salt into the butter mixture until smooth.  Fold in the sour cream and bananas.  Pour into the greased pan.

Bake for an hour or until a toothpick comes out clean.  Let cool and serve!



P.S.  The one on the right is hers.  The one on the left is mine.  I have to be honest here because after all that is what this page is all about.  Hers came out way better than mine.  This is proof to my belief that 2 people can follow the same recipe and still the end result will be different.  So make any changes or adjustments to your recipe as well and use this as your guideline! LOL
