I'll go find

i was going to say banana bread!

Google it - don't know recipe off by heart.

Otherwise, freeze them peeled and broken into chunks. If you blend milk with frozen bananas it goes lovely and think and milkshake-y. Quite healthy too, since it tastes as though it;s made with ice cream when really it's just milk and bananas.

Stir in 6oz castor sugar, 4oz suktanas or raisins, 1 oz chopped walnuts and 4oz washed glace cherries. Peels and mash 3 large bananas and stir in. Then break in 2 eggs and stir in well. Bung into 1lb loaf tin. Bake at 180/gas 4 for about 1-1-1/4 hours. Delish! have made this lots of times. Nice with or wothout butter, cut into slices.

We make frozen banana lollies!

Half the bananas and put on a lolly stick. Freeze till solid.

Melt chocolate then take frozen bananas out of freezer, dribble chocolate all over, roll in sugar strands if you like, then freeze again till chocolate is hard.

Yumm Yumm!

I usually do banana muffins. I'm sure they would freeze. uses 3 ripe bananas.

FairLadyRantALot Fri 10-Jul-09 18:56:33
