Kid's cooking birthday party

"Thank you Ellie for the great party! Sofia and her friends enjoyed it a lot and she keeps saying it was the best birthday she ever had or attended! The little chefs enjoyed making their pizzas and decorating their Whoopie Pies, the moms were so impressed by their jobs. Thank you for making Sofia's dream come true."

Quick Banana Bread

© "So Easy, So Delicious"
2 very ripe bananas
Scant 1/2 C canola oil
2 eggs
Scant 1 C sugar
1/4 C walnuts, chopped
1/4 C mini-chocolate chips
1 tsp vanilla
1¼ C flour
1 tsp baking soda

Mash bananas in a large bowl or food processor. Add oil, eggs, sugar, nuts, chocolate chips and vanilla. Using a wooden spoon or spatula, mix well. Fold in flour and baking soda until blended. Pour into a greased 9"x5" loaf pan and bake at 350° for 45 to 55 minutes, or until a toothpick, inserted in the center, comes out clean. If you prefer, bake in (2) 3"x6" mini-loaf pans. However, reduce the baking time to 38 to 42 minutes.

Hint: You can make this bread in only 1 bowl by using the food processor. Mash the bananas and add the remaining ingredients to the processor being careful not to overmix. If you don’t have time to make this bread when your bananas are overripe, peel and freeze them for a later date. Before using, defrost and discard most of the accumulated banana juices.
