I mashed up two of the bananas, and processed the apple with a handful of walnuts and a few slices of crystallized ginger, then loosely followed the recipe for Banana Nut Bread from the Better Homes and Garden New Cook Book.
After the bananas, apple, ginger, and walnuts were mixed up, I added:
a generous tablespoon of cinnamon
2/3 cup of sugar
1 tablespoon of soft butter
2 tablespoons of milk
Mixed that all up well,
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
1 1/4 teaspoons baking powder
2 cups flour (if I had some quick oats, I may have replaced a cup of flour with that)
It all went into a greased loaf pan, and baked at 350 degrees for about an hour. It could have used a few more minutes, because the center was a little too moist. It was delicious. A great way to use up some of the fruit that was taunting me.
And just because it is so amazing, here's another view of the backyard - with sun added, making it appear less ominous.Note the railing just in front of the trees in the center of the picture. That is a split-rail fence, nearly 4 feet high.
