Now the original recipe is here from Southern Living magazine, submitted by Ann Wilson from Lexington North Carolina. I've included it because I'm always fiddling with recipes to find a different mousetrap so I've added my own version in this blog entry. I can tell you, this is outstanding, easy, quick and delicious. For health nuts, you might as well stop here. Rob and I subscribe to the Paula Deen school of Southern cooking: fat, sugar, carbs and whipped cream, so just mosey elsewhere for your tofu and soy milk.
Banana Bread Cobbler serves 8 (or 2 PD fans for 2 days) 15 min. prep time
1 cup self rising flour
1 cup sugar
1 cup milk
1/3 cup vegetable oil
2 large over-ripe bananas
1. Preheat over to 375°. Whisk or stir together flour and next 2 ingredients just until blended, lumps left are ok (Southern cooks already know this). Wisk or stir in vegetable oil. Pour batter (it will be runny) into a lightly greased 11x7 baking dish. Smoosh over-ripe bananas out of their skins and let pieces plop into batter, doesn't need to be pretty, trust me, the Streusel Topping hides it all. Sprinkle with Streusel Topping.
2. Bake at 375° for 40 to 45 minutes or until golden brown and bubbly. Serve with vanilla ice cream or whipped cream. PD fans serve with both, adding a maraschino cherry, shredded coconut and enjoy with a coffee latte spiked with Jim Beam.
