bananas - frozen?

Can one (I'm not saying who) freeze over-ripe bananas and than use them later in a cake?

  1. Absolutely. I regularly freeze bananas. They're also great to keep in the freezer for smoothies.

    1. Definitely. When I was a kid we always had a bag of frozen mashed bananas in the freezer. We also peeled them, rolled them in malt, froze them whole and ate them as a snack in the summer time...

      1. you bet. i keep a container of overripe bananas in the freezer at all times for baking.

        1. Oh yes! You can also freeze them (peel first) and then dip in chocolate. Easier than a cake :)

          1. +5 or 6 or whatever # this is... for Yes definitely :) I keep a container for banana bread & smoothies

              About half of a frozen banana, a handful of frozen strawberries, and a splash of milk makes the best smoothie!
