Banana Bread with Chocolate and Bourbon
Homemade Banana Jam
Have you ever got yourself stuck with lots of ripe bananas? Somehow this happen to me more often that I expect therefor I have to find a way to use the bananas up, otherwise they end up in a trash which I always feel bad.
So here is a very simple recipe to bust the flavor of banana.
2 ripe bananas
¼ cup sugar
¼ cup water
1 tablespoon lemon juice
½ teaspoon cinnamon
Cut the banana into approximately ½ inch size.
In a small pan place all the ingredients except for the crescent and turn the stove to medium low heat.
Stir occasionally until the banana mix is slightly thick, cook for about 6 minutes.
Remove from heat. Serve warm or cold.
Now you can use the banana jam to top ice cream, spread on a toast, on pancakes…anyway you like.
You can use this simple homemade banana jam to fill crescent rolls, like in this recipe.

Banana Jam Crescent Rolls
Light Banana Loaf
Banana Sponge Cake
As always, I am looking for banana recipes. This cake is very simple and easy to make, and it is delicious, light and very fluffy. The first time I used a loaf pan, and the cake just disappeared…this time I made them into small servings, so we can better control the portions.
This cake is great to serve as a snack and it stays moist and fresh for a couple of days. You can always dress these cupcakes up by topping with your favorite frosting. I chose to keep it plain for the time being…
The cake/cupcakes will shrink a little once you remove them from the oven, but do not worry, it will not affect its texture. They will still be very light, moist and fluffy.
1/3 cup sugar
¾ cup mashed banana
1 cup all-purpose flour
½ teaspoon baking powder
¼ teaspoon baking soda
¼ cup canola oil
½ teaspoon vanilla extract
¼ cup chopped walnut
Preheat oven at 325F.
In a bowl sift the flour with baking soda, baking powder. In another bowl mix the eggs, vanilla extract, sugar, mashed banana and mix until ribbon stage.
Add the flour mix to the egg and banana mix, mixing gently. Once the flour has been incorporated, add the walnut and the oil.
Pour into the prepared muffin cup (approximately 18 cups) and bake for approximately 25 minute at preheated oven or until an inserted wooden pick comes out clean.
Cool on the wire rack and serve.
I hope you enjoy this simple recipe for banana sponge cake.

Banana Upside Down Cake
Banana Spring Rolls
Somehow I do not like fresh banana, my hypothesis is that back in Brazil bananas were everywhere, therefore I have a kind of “fobia”, but I like banana in cake, pies, bread…in another word cooked. We always have it at home since my husband likes them and many time we get at Costco…as you can see from the picture, he was not able to take care of the load so I decided to create a dessert with it. I wanted something simple and yet yummie.
Spring roll wrap
Cut the banana in half. In the center of the wrap place brown sugar, cinnamon and 1 piece of banana. Wrap by folding like an envelope.
In a skillet melt the butter and add the rolls, let it brown both sides. Serve with vanilla ice cream.
The combination of the crisp hot/warm banana rolls with ice cream is just delicious…now I look forward to have extra ripe bananas so I have excuse to make the banana rolls.
