How freezable is a banana anyway? Never really thought of it before but if they're already past their best then discard the skins and bag the fruit for future use in - er - porridge?

Have you got a recipe for the cake? Is it just spoiling an other wise good cake by putting bananas in?
OH came home from the fruit shop with more bananas than we usually buy in a month, and though he likes them mushy I can't see him getting through that many. Some are already oozing. (She didn't exactly PAY him to take them away, but the next best thing)

Peel them and freeze them. Then, one or two at a time, take them out, cut them up (while still frozen) and put them in the blender with some milk and orange juice (and other kinds of frozen fruit, if you want), and blend on high speed until smooth.   mmmmmmmmm

My banana bread recipe -- unfortunately not with me at work today -- is superb. Along with the usual ingredients, it calls for sour cream and grated orange peel, two substances that conspire to elevate the humble overripe banana to heavenly splendor.

You could try drying them. There's a section on this page giving you various ways of doing this. (You have to scroll down a fair way.)

The first bananas I ever tasted were dried bananas sent home by my Dad in the army from North Africa - fresh bananas were completely unavailable during the war. I still think of them as being the real bananas - those fresh yellow ones are a pale substitute.

The "normal" banana bread recipe calls for three bananas, but I like it more cake-like, so I use five bananas (four if they are very large).

5 bananas, mashed
2 eggs, lightly beaten
3/4 cup sugar
1 1/2 cup white flour
1/2 cup whole wheat flour
1 teaspoon soda
1 teaspoon salt
1-2 tablespoon melted butter
walnuts or pecans optional, at least 1/2 cup

pre-heat oven to 350 degrees (U.S.)

Mash bananas, mix in eggs. Mix dry ingredients and add to bananas, stir in butter as you mix it all. Mix in nuts, or arrange on top of batter.

Pour into greased regular-sized bread loaf pan (or smaller pans and reduce the baking time according to size). Bake 65 minutes (at least) and test for doneness by inserting toothpick into the middle.

If you're not using all of the bananas, mash them so they're easy to use (I mash five at a time) and freeze them. Make a note on the container if you do an odd number so you can supplement the frozen fruit when you get ready to use it. If you wanted to make this recipe with your bananas, I suggest you divide them into containers of 4 1/3 bananas each, make a loaf from one batch and freeze the other two batches.

Although I don't really know if it's been done before, I imagine that blending them, adding some water and yeast and letting the whole batch ferment will give you some type of alcohol. Bananas have the highest amount of carbs (sugars) of almost all the "fruits".

Banana flapjacks

4oz butter melted in a pan with
2 big spoons of honey,
2 or 3 mashed, really really ripe bananas
museli to mix.

Melt the butter in the pan with the honey, add the mashed bananas and as much muesli to make it a good solid mass - this varies between 10 and 14oz.

Bake in a moderate oven until springy to touch. Don't try taking them out of the pan until they've cooled a lot.

Where did you hear that, do you recall?

It was a recent edition of The One Show, caught in passing at the in-laws on Thursday night en-route to The Steamer in Fleetwood. Might not have been five years, but certainly long enough to give me pause for thought at the amount of banana skins I've casually discarded in my time thinking they'd break down pretty quickly...

Looking it up on-line I came up with this which makes interesting reading:

Thanks for your reply and link, Sedayne. In my case, the peels are tucked in over the roots of the rose bushes, and I find they break down within two weeks tops in summer. We have very good compost as mulch, though, so we may have an optimal situation for this kind of soil amendment.

like CarolC & Joybell, I peel & freeze ripe/over-ripe bananas & have been doing it for decades.

I can remember when our local fruit market was GIVING AWAY lots of very over-ripe bananas & most of the takers were older migrant women who knew what a treasure they were cos they how to use them. Other folks were turning up their noses at the sight of these black & brown bananas, we were gathering them up into bags & staggering off under our loads. YUM!

I used to have a great banana cake recipe, which froze well & was yummy when heated, tho also great eaten straight out of the freezer!

When I ate cooked porridge I would just cut the frozen banana into the pan & cook them together, now I eat muuesli, I just remove a banana from the freezer when starting brekkie preparations, and cut it up into my muesli when I'm ready to serve it. I also do the same when I'm making a banana smoothie. YUM

If you have an ice cream maker, blend them, add ginger in some form (stem ginger in syrup is the best, chopped up and with some of the syrup added as well), then put them in the bowl and churn.

There have never been so many bananas in the house at once, and I miscounted.
Started out with 15
He ate one
I put one in a nana sandwich
he ate two
I froze 5
I put 2 in in a banana cake
One and a half in banana flapjack
two and a half still waiting to go in the custard that's in the fridge.
I gave one to the hens.

The flapjack is in the tin, most of the cake is in the freezer. He had a slice hot with custard, and I sampled it with my cup of tea

Can anyone fit this to the tune of 10 green bottles.
