I was looking for a ripened banana recipe when I came across this. I did not want to make a bread.
I altered the recipe in the following manner.
I had 1% milk only so I added about 3 tablespoons of sour cream to the milk making it measure about one cup. You could probably use all sour cream.
I had no shortening which has no flavor anyway so I used Land o Lakes buttery Spread. Not the best choice but it creamed fine. Butter flavored shortening would be good in this
I used pecans instead of walnuts because that is all I had.
Last of all, I used two small ripened banana which ended up being about one and half after removing the ends and dark spots. They were ripe but not to ripe. They had plenty of texture and firmness to them. I smashed them by hand. LOL.
I think these would be great with just a dusting of powdered sugar too.
Some ideas for icings:
peanut butter (small amount to the frosting recipe given)
They are cooking up very nicely. I suspect they will be great as the raw mixture was wonderful.
