Daddy goes bananas!

So I've mentioned Mike, Laney and Mia's shared affinity for bananas. Well, last weekend we had some past-prime bananas and he and Laney set off to make banana bread. I had some whole milk vanilla yogurt that the girls weren't going through fast enough, so we tried to incorporate that instead of oil. Here's what we came up with...

1/2 c. butter
3/4 c. sugar
1 egg
1/2 c. applesauce
2 ripe bananas
1 cup whole milk vanilla yogurt (we used Stonyfield Farm)
1 c. white flour
1 1/2 tsp. baking powder
1/2 tsp. soda
1 c whole wheat flour
2 shakes cinnamon

350 for about 40 minutes (toothpick comes out clean.)

This worked out. The bread was quite tasty but also extremely moist/dense. Probably because it had a cup of yogurt in it. Mia even ate it. Good stuff.
