Bobanana Bread - Star Wars Boba Fett's Favorite Banana Bread
Bobanana Bread - Star Wars Boba Fett's Favorite Banana Bread
The last week I have been working on a set of graphics for free printable party food labels for my The Star Wars Mom website. Along with that is baking/cooking some of my favorite recipes. So why not post the recipes on Italiano Connection so you can find my recipes too. First up this week is Boba Fett's and our family's favorite banana bread, which we fondly call Bobanana Bread. The free printable Star Wars food label is here.

My kids have been known to conspire with one another not to eat the bananas in our home so they can have this banana bread for breakfast.

In fact, when one of my sons was younger, he tried to talk the produce manager in a store into starting a sale of 2 bunches of bananas for a discounted price. The manager inquired about how many bananas he can eat in a day. My son confessed his goal for one bunch to get overripe for banana bread. The manager laughed and warned me I had a clever boy on my hands.

We love this banana bread as is, but some of my family love to eat it with butter smothered on it.

Star Wars Italian Food:
Bobanana Bread Recipe

Ingredients:

3 overripe bananas (sprinkled with Fruit Fresh, if desired)
1 cup sugar
1/2 cup salted butter, room temp
2 eggs
1 Tablespoon heavy cream or sour cream
1 1/2 teaspoons cinnamon
(pinch of nutmeg, optional)
2 cups flour
1 teaspoon baking soda
1 teaspoon baking powder

 1/4 cup salted butter
1/4 cup white sugar
1/4 cup dark brown sugar
1/2 cup flour
2 teaspoons cinnamon

Directions:

Preheat oven to 325 degrees Fahrenheit. Butter and non-stick spray a 9X5 loaf pan or a bundt cake pan. Yes, both. It keeps it from sticking much better than just one or the other.

Mash the bananas. Add 1 cup sugar and 1/2 cup butter and combine until well mixed. Add eggs, cream, and 2 teaspoons cinnamon and again mix well.

In a separate bowl, sift together 2 cups of flour, baking soda, and baking powder. Add these dry ingredients to the banana mixture and combine only until dry ingredients disappear.

Pour banana batter into prepared pan.

In a small bowl, combine 1/4 cup butter, 1/4 cup sugar, 1/4 cup dark brown sugar, 1/2 cup flour, and 2 teaspoons of cinnamon until crumbly. Put this crumbly goodness on top of the batter and pat in lightly.

Put pan in the center of a preheated oven and bake for 55 to 65 minutes, or until a toothpick inserted into the center comes out clean and the bread springs back a bit when lightly pressed. Take out and invert onto a plate. Quickly invert again onto another plate so the crumbly goodness is on top.
Wait until at least partially cool to slice and serve.
