It's comfort food season!

It's a cloudy, dreary, rainy and somewhat chilly day here. Perfect day for baking. And I'm out of flour...drat!!

Had just enough to make one loaf of banana bread. Wanted to make 2, but oh well. It'll have to wait until I can go shopping. Which I'd do if I had a car during the day. Drat again!

Well...in case you're home and it's dreary where you are and you *have* flour, here's my banana bread recipe.

Mer's Banana Bread

1/3 cup softened butter (1/3 cup is 5 1/2 T)
1/2 cup sugar
2 cups flour
1/2t nutmeg (maybe...see below)
pinch of salt
2 ripe bananas, mashed
1/2 cup chopped nuts (optional)
1 egg
1t vanilla
3t baking soda

In a mixing bowl, cream butter and sugar. Add egg and vanilla (I also add a splash of rum extract for a little kick). In a separate bowl, mix flour, baking powder, nutmeg and salt (I LOVE nutmeg so I add a bit more than the recipe calls for). Add flour mix and banana alternately to creamed mix. Fold in nuts. Pour into loaf pan (um, yeah. I love nutmeg, remember? So I sprinkle some on the dough too) and bake at 350 for 40-45 minutes, until a toothpick comes out clean.

Unfortunately, I only added one banana this morning purely by accident. Hopefully it still tastes okay. It's for my hubby to bring to work tomorrow. It sure did make my house smell good! :-)
