Decadent Banana Bread

A a big morning smoothie drinker, I tend to grab for the biggest bunch of banana at the market. As a result, I often have too many in my fruit basket and some brown or blacken before I can use them. Since I do not like to throw food away, I sometimes make this easy recipe . If the rest of my family is overdosing on bananas, I still make the cake and I freeze it for that perfect snowy day where everyone is craving a fresh hot cake right out of the oven.
