Banana Bread

Banana BreadA tasty solution for over-ripe bananas. Bananas are a sweet treat when they’re a nice ripe yellow, but what do you do with them when they go all spotty or even black? You make banana muffins or bread, that’s what you do. You can store them in the freezer when they go black until you have enough and just defrost them when you are ready to bake.
