Caramel Banana Bread

This Caramel Banana Bread is Sinful!

So, the two pieces on the picture that are cut – I ate those. Then a few hours later, I ate another! This is not a good bread to have in the house if you want to be on a diet. However, if you are feeding your family and want to make sure that they rave about the dessert-yes, I said dessert, then make this. It really is so good, it tastes like a dessert.

Caramel on Banana Bread?

 

You bet!

The caramel is so good, that you will not want to waste a drop. Tastes great with the banana bread. I normally put a dusting of sugar on top of my banana bread, or a crumb topping, this time, I thought I would try a caramel sauce topping. So glad that I tried this one. This certainly puts this banana bread in a category that is worthy of gifting to someone.

Be Frugal and eat good food. Caramel Banana Bread is a penny pinching quick bread.

Freezing Bananas

My husband does not eat bananas. When I purchase bananas, very often, I can’t eat the bananas before they start to get brown spots. When I have bananas that are on the verge, I peel them and put them in a ZipLoc Bag and pop them in the freezer. I can’t stand to throw away food. When I make banana bread, it is always when I have 2-3 bananas in the freezer waiting to be used. By the way, my husband normally does not eat the banana bread – I asked him if he wanted some of this bread-he said yes. I couldn’t believe it. He is my worst critic sometimes! He liked it!

How to Use Frozen Bananas in Cooking

The pictures below show the bananas frozen. In the picture on the left, you can see the one on the right is starting to turn a light brown from the freezer. These have been frozen from 3 months ago to a few weeks ago. I should probably date the bags for food safety. But, I rarely let them in the freezer longer than 3 months. In the middle picture, I have the bananas out of the bag and in a microwave-safe bowl. I microwave them for about 3 minutes on power level 30. Once thawed, I used the hand mixer to mash the bananas.
