Microwave banana bread

I know that some of you cringed when reading that title. So did I, at the thought of it. But it's hot during those summer months. Like, really hot. Too hot for the oven. And even if it wasn't too hot for the oven, my oven is broken.
So what do you do when you have brown bananas and no oven? You make microwave banana bread!

I have had my Tupperware Oval Microcooker for nearly 10 years, and I love it!

I don't use it nearly as often as I should, but there's really a lot you can do with it. I have made chicken enchiladas, rotiserrie chicken, and a German Chocolate Cake that frosts itself. I steam vegetables and cook ground beef/turkey in it as well. So, I figured I could make a banana bread in it too!



1 1/2.c flour

3/4 c. sugar

1/2 c. plus 2 tbsp. soft butter

1/3 c. milk

2 eggs

2 med. bananas, sliced or mashed

1 tsp. baking soda
1 tsp. pumkin pie spice
1/2 tsp. salt

Combine ingredients in order given. Mix well. Lightly butter a microwave pan. Sprinkle with remaining nuts. Pour in batter. Cook for 7 to 9 minutes on full power or until done. Let stand 5 minutes before turning out of pan.

You could of course us any microwavable pan. I'm actually thinking of using coffee mugs next time and making muffins!
