confession: fresh baked, homemade banana, zucchini, carrot or anything along those lines kinda bread is a weakness of mine. thankfully sp loves him some homemade bread as well. i made it with some bananas that were on their last day a few weeks ago and the loaf was devoured in a few minutes by all parties involved. so before i left the ranch sp requested i make this deliciousness again.. but with a little extra to be enjoyed for a few days.
so with my new mini loaf pans (that i found at a antique mall for $2 each) i happily baked and nourished the cowboys on the ranch!
here is the recipe i found.. it was so simple, easy and quick- my kinda baking:

makes 1 full-sized loaf or 2 small loaves
1/2 stick butter, softened
2 eggs
2-3 (or more if you like) very ripe bananas
2/3 cups sugar
1 1/3 cup all-purpose flour
3/4 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
1/4 teaspoon bakin powder 
1/2 teaspoon cinnamon (optional.. but it make it so much better if you add it!!)
