A successful experiment

Three hours ago, Mason and I decided to try a baking experiment. With the help of several quick bread recipes and a bit of whimsical thinking we concocted "Peanut Butter and Banana Bread". It was, apparently, a successful experiment as this is all the remains a few short hours later. And even that last bit was gone before I began typing the post.

Mix together:

1 cup sugar
1/2 cup peanut butter
2 eggs
3 bananas that are too ripe to eat
1/2 cup milk
1 Tblsp vanilla

Then add:

2 1/2 cups flour
1 teaspoon baking soda
1 teaspoon salt

*I did end up adding an extra 1/4 cup of milk as it was a bit too thick. But I used powdered milk (added 1/2 cup water and a mighty handful of milk powder) so my measurements may have been a bit off.
*The only possible improvement would have been to add chocolate chips. We didn't have any though.

Bake in a 13x9 casserole dish that's been sprayed with oil spray at 350 until done (you know, the old toothpick in the center thing).

That sounds really yummy. No wonder it all got eaten quickly.
