Banana Bread Morning!

Kade and Mommy had a banana bread saturday morning! I got the recipe from my mother, who got it from a friend. It is the best banana bread recipe I've ever tasted. However, it is a very temperamental recipe. If you don't do it just right, it doesn't turn out right at all. This time, I left it in the oven for maybe two minutes too long. it's a little dark on the top, but still tastes delicious. I let Kade sit up on the kitchen table and "help" mommy make the bread. He had lots of fun banging utensils together and my house smells wonderful.

edited to include recipe:

5 tbsp butter
1/2 cup brown sugar
2 egg whites
1 1/2 cup banana
1/4 tsp baking powder
1/3 cup nuts (optional)
1/2 cup sugar
1 large egg
1 tsp vanilla
1 3/4 cup flour
1/2 tsp salt
1/2 cup heavy cream

soften butter- add sugar, brown sugar and stir until smooth. Add egg, vanilla and banana.
Add cream alternatively while adding dry ingredients. (i.e. throw in some flour, stir, throw in some cream, stir, etc.)

Bake at 350 degrees for 1 hour 15 minutes in a bread pan.

*substitute for heavy cream:
2/3 cup milk and 1/3 cup unsalted melted butter = 1 cup heavy cream
