Recipe of the Day!

This has always been a family favorite. Enjoy! I have always added 1/2 cup of sugar and 1/2 cup of brown sugar, if you would like you can add 1 cup of sugar instead.

Banana Nut Bread

1/2 cup of butter
2 eggs
1 teaspoon soda
1/2 cup sugar
1/2 cup brown sugar
2 cup of all purpose flour
1 cup mashed bananas (ripe)
1 cup finely chopped nuts

Cream butter and sugars. add eggs, one at a time and beat well. Sift flour and soda and add to creamed mixture. Add bananas . Fold in nuts.
Bake in loaf pan at 350 for 55-60 minutes. Cool before slicing.

Irish Potato Candy

Here is another sweet Irish recipe to enjoy.

1 medium potato
1 box powdered sugar
1 small jar of peanut butter

Boil potato until done. Take peeling off and mash potato. Mix powered sugar with potato until mixture is thick enough to roll out.
( It may take up to 1 1/2 boxes to reach the right consistency)
Sprinkle dough board with powered sugar. Roll out dough and spread with peanut butter. Roll ( like a jelly roll), and wrap in wax paper. Refrigerate until roll is cool enough to slice.
If you would like you can add green food coloring after you mash potato for the Irish Holiday.
