I would like to add a banana chocolate chip recipe to my list of cake flavors. Can you freeze ripe bananas so that you can have them ready when you need to make a cake?

I do all the time! They aren't good to eat like you would normally eat a banana after being frozen because they get kind of mushy as they deforst, but are great for baking! I never throw bananaz away!

That is my son's favorite treat--frozen banana on a stick!
Peel them and put a popsicle stick in , wrap in press n seal. He eats them frozen!

have 6 in the freezer waiting for me to get "un"lazy and make pancakes and waffles.

whenever one (or more) get past their eating prime but still usable for baking -- into the freezer "until...."

i've even held them until almost black before freezing for max sweetness.

HA HA Doug-- My DH froze some for my son the other day and He said "daddy didn't do it right! They don't taste good like when mommy does it" He froze them before they even had spots on them. I wait until they are good and ripe too.

I often go ahead and mash them then freeze them in a ziploc container. Viola! When I need them for bread, or any other recipe, they are ready to go!

I also peel them before freezing, throw 'em in a ziploc baggie, then when I need them I just squish them up in the bag and dump them in my mixing bowl icon_smile.gif

I always peel them first too.

Just looked at my post and saw that I can't spell! Geesh! I DO know how to spell bananas!
