Yes, We Have No Bananas!

I love those little baby bananas – no, I don’t think that’s what their real name is, but I love them nonetheless.  I bought some recently and apparently promptly forgot about them.  I needed to do something with them.  Stat.  So of course, I turned to the best thing on the interwebs – Pinterest. 

I pinned this pin a week or so ago.  The recipe comes from Artsy-Fartsy Mama and it is amazeballs!  Here are the ingredients:

IMG_4041 Do you see that?  Three ingredients.  Three. 

The original recipe called for 3 or 4 overly ripe bananas, those of the regular size variety.  Remember, I had the baby kind so I used 8 of them.  The first thing you need to do is mash the bananas.  I put them in the bowl of my KitchenAid and beat them to a pulp.  Then I added the rest of the ingredients – two eggs & a box of yellow cake mix.  How easy is that, I ask?  The only thing I did do differently was add a splash of butter flavoring, which I always do when I bake anything.  If you’ve never used it, start doing this immediately.  You won’t regret it. 

The recipe says it makes two small or one large loaf.  Since I was making them to take to work, I put liners in a muffin tin and made muffins.  I baked them for 18 minutes at 350 degrees.  This was the result:

IMG_4047I had to make sure they tasted good enough to take to work.  So I tried one. 

It was scrumptious. 

You have to try these.  It’s a must.

Tell me, what have you pinned AND actually made?

Have I ever told you how much it makes me laugh every time you write, "Oh, hell....."

Love.

Pinterest? Oh, I post things. I don't ever do anything with them, though.
