Milkmaid's Recipe Box
FOOD, FOOD, FOOD! I'm such a FARMER at heart-- even a CALF knows that so much in life is about the FOOD! (A bit of a "bio" about me can be found way down near the bottom.)
You can find a recipe index entitled "Labels" down along the right side, starting below the picture of the farm. Then, below the "Label" list are pictures of some of my old "standbys"-- click on their picture and it should take you to the recipe.
You will see no advertising on my blog; this means there is no monetary benefit for me having "visitors" or "joiners"-- having said that, if you do wish to JOIN my blog, you can do so by scrolling w-a-y down to near the bottom of the page...

Kona Banana Cake (more like a 'snack cake')
I made this 'easy one' quite often when we lived on the 'chicken farm', and it was a liked recipe.
Preheat oven to 325-degrees. I bake mine in a greased 9x12-inch glass dish.
3/4 cup butter, softened
1 and 1/2 cup white granulated sugar
3 large eggs
1 and 1/4 cups of mashed ripe banana
1 and 3/4 cups all-purpose flour
1 and 1/4 teaspoon baking soda
3/4 teaspoon salt
1/2 cup chopped walnuts (optional)
In the order listed, dump everything into a mixing bowl and beat with mixer for about a minute. Pour this into your prepared baking pan or dish, and bake for about 35 minutes or until a toothpick comes out clean. (Ovens vary-- so, check at 35 minutes and adjust accordingly.)
Cool, and cut into squares. A dollop of whipped cream, or a small scoop of ice cream can't hurt how this tastes. : )
