BackstoryThis is my husbands favorite sweet food that I make. I took the recipe from my mom but have been making it for years and years. I even made this recipe in front of my college speech class as my "how-to" speech, (which had a short time limit). It is one of my favorites and probably one of the 1st things I ever learned to bake.

- 1 tsp. baking soda
- 1/2 cup softened butter

- 1 cup coarsely mashed banana (about 2 bananas)
