Help - i have *one* medium half-rotted banana, a dozen eggs, a ton of flour & sugar, some vanilla essence, baking powder and a can of ghirardelli cocoa mix. What can i make tonight (i.e. before banana totally liquefies) out of this that might be like a banana bread?
re: Jeremy Newel
If anyone is ever held captive again with just ONE molting banana, here's how to turn it into a small banana-breadish thing (completely edible and very yummy):
1 ripe banana
1/8 cup butter melted
1/3 cup sugar (i used brown)
1 small egg
2/3 cup flour
i tblsp cocoa (i used ghirardelli)
1/4 tsp baking powder
a pinch of salt
Mix everything together and pour into a lightly greased (i used pam) baking container. I only have a 9 inch pyrex dish and there wasn't enough batter to cover that, so i poured it all into a one of the 4 inch *bowls* in my pyrex bowl set. It came out looking like a little volcano, but the chopstick i inserted in through the apex came out clean, and the whole thing slid out in a perfect cone. Served it with a dollop of creamy macadamia-nut ice-cream to make it seem like i knew all along what i was doing.
Thought of a couple more...
Freeze the banana.
--Make either a banana daiquiri....
Banana ice cream
Take the frozen banana and put it in a food processor, add some nonfat dry milk powder, OR some heavy cream, a little confectioner's sugar to taste, whir it up and you have instant banana ice cream.
