Got a glut of bananas

Not sure how it happened, but I appear to have accumulated about 10 bananas.

Any suggestions on how to use 'em up? Sweet or Savoury ideas welcome :)

I would without a doubt make banana pudding, and or, banana bread.

Been looking at banana bread recipes. May also try banana fritters.

The other night I made a chocolate bread pudding with bananas and raspberries, it was very good, but it will come nowhere close to using 10 bananas!! When I have lots of ripe bananas I mash them and then freeze them in plastic baggies for later (1 cup in each baggie).

Could you give a little more on the recipe?

What do you do with 10 bags of mushed up frozen banana?! lol

You can also freeze them whole. You could saute them in a butter and brown sugar, eat as is or spoon over ice cream.

Sure... Here's the recipe and a pic....

2 cups torn bread
1 cup raspberries (frozen or fresh)
1 mashed banana
2 oz semi sweet chocolate chips
2 cups milk
1/4 cup sugar
2 eggs
1 tsp vanilla

Spread bread layered with raspberries and banana in a greased casserole dish. Heat the milk and stir in chocolate chips until melted. Add eggs and sugar and vanilla. Pour over bread. Let sit 15 minutes. Bake at 350 for about 50 minutes. Top with chocolate sauce

Oh re: the 10 baggies of frozen bananas.... I take them out one at a time to make muffins etc. I prefer to do that then freeze them whole because the slimy black frozen bananas turn my stomach!
