Thanks Ma for that link to the banana bread. I will make it as soon as I have six brown bananas in the house.

That's butter melting on a warm slice of the bread!

Next time I will peel the 'nanas into a colander and reduce the liquid.

I personally think freezing is easier than all that fussing with the microwave. Of course, I almost always have some frozen 'nanas in the freezer. We never seem to finish them before they are too ripe. Well, actually I buy enough to save some for 'nana bread. I let them get really, really ripe before I freeze them.
Reducing the liquid gives it an amazingly strong banana flavor.

You're welcome Chopper. Make sure that you let them get extra ripe!

It is amazing!!!! Not that my old banana bread recipe was bad but this is just incredible. It's a little more work than regular banana bread since you use more bananas (6 large for one loaf), you have to microwave them, strain and then take the juice and reduce it in a saucepan. It really concentrates the banana flavor.
May I have the recipe please? I couldn't figure out how to get the recipe without watching the show.

I can't post the recipe due to copyright issues.

I have an AMAZING banana bread recipe. It was given to me by the head chef from the Beaver Club at the Queen Elizabeth Hotel in Montreal. When I worked as a Tour Manager, I practically lived at the Queen Elizabeth for the summer and there was always fresh fruit and this banana bread in my suite. You line your pans with buttered parchment paper and bake it at 275 for 2-1/2 hours. It is a very moist banana bread. I didn't promise not to share the recipe (nor was I asked not to), but PM me if you'd like it. I don't feel right about posting it on the Internet. I also have the recipe for the Beaver Club's chocolate mousse.

Dessert was apple crisp (granny smith apples, lemon zest, lemon juice, cinnamon, nutmeg, raisins, walnuts, pinch salt, Splenda brown sugar and melted butter) topped with blended butter, lemon zest, lemon juice, cinnamon, nutmeg, pinch salt and uncooked rolled oats)

That topping looks soooo good. Would you post the whole recipe, please?
