    Baking is definitely one good way to bond with your children.They'll have fun stirring the yummy mixtures in your bowl (and putting their finger on it too so they can lick the leftover batter).

    Admittedly, letting your children loose inside your kitchen with you could create a huge mess, but what's a little clutter and spill compared to a great experience that you will share with them? Not to mention if you end up baking delicious banana bread that you will share with your whole family.

    The children will see how painstakingly you prepare the food that you serve them and they will appreciate the time and effort you spend in preparing their favorite treats. Plus, you could also teach your children how to take directions as you anticipate them of the succulent results that lie ahead.

    Mashed up bananas give the bread its distinct light sweet flavor. It became a staple in American cookbooks, especially when baking powder and baking soda became immensely popular during the 1930s.

    It was speculated that banana bread originated during the early 18th century. Because of the simplicity of the recipe, banana breads became more and more popular as time went by.

    Indeed, there's nothing like smelling the aroma of sweet banana and cinnamon when you pull the bread out of the oven. The delightfully crisp crust, with its mouth-watering golden brown color, is absolutely one of the best in the world.

    The quality of the bananas that you will choose in making the bread is a huge factor that contributes to the taste of the finished product.

    Lots of people believe that the best bananas for the bread are the ones with flesh that already turned soft and skins that already turned brown. Normally, people would throw away these overripe bananas, but this can actually be used to create the perfect banana bread.

    Here are the recipe ingredients that you will need for baking banana bread:

    3-4 pieces of mashed up bananas
    1.5 cups of flour
    1/2 tsp of salt
    2 eggs, slightly beaten
    1 tsp of vanilla extract
    1/4 cup of softened butter

    Mix eggs, sugar, vanilla extract and butter together into your big bowl. Toss in mashed up bananas then stir well. Add in salt and flour to your bowl then stir them up until evenly blended. Be careful not to over-stir though.

    Next, pour mixture into 2 well-greased loaf pans, making sure that it is evenly distributed. Now put the pans inside the oven and bake cake at around 350 deg. F for 45 mins. To check that the cake is ready, insert a clean toothpick at the center. If it comes out of your cake clean, then you can take it out of the oven.

    Welcome to HubPages!

    I'd recommend that rather than posting this in the forum, click at the top to "start a new hub" and post it there. You have a lot of very nicely written points and I'd also recommend doing some searches on how to optimize keywords, SEO, backlinking and read the basic guides. Doing so, you are far more likely to get the results you are looking for.

    Best regards and best wishes!
