you can always make banana bread. its especially good when the bananas start to get really overripe and soft.

Bananas freeze really well too...peel them, cut into chunks, and then use them frozen in smoothies or thawed and pureed for banana cake.  (Or you can cover the chunks in chocolate before you freeze them -- yummy snack!)

I like to mash slightly ripe bananas ans mix with OJ. Then freeze in small portions.  It's grat frozen, if youlet it thaw it;'s kind like a mousse.

These banana muffins are really simple and turn out well:

I like to add chocolate chips to the batter.

I have a good recipe for banana chocolate chip pancakes too, if you'd like it.  They freeze well, and re-heat in the microwave or toaster oven.

Do you know anyone with a dehydrator? You could make banana chips.

A simple idea that is great for kids (and big kids)...

Slice your banana longways (with skin still on), fill with a row of chocolate buttons, wrap with tin foil, and put in an oven / barbie for about 10mins...  eat with a spoon & expect to get delicious warm choc-banana goo everywhere! 

Enjoy Smiley

When freezing bananas, I freeze them in the skin, whole - just chuck 'em in the freezer as is.  I separate the banana from the skin when I thaw them - much easier, prevents freezer burn, and hey, it works. Smiley

I make banana cake. it's very very moist.
(makes two 7" sandwich tin cakes; don't know what they're called in the US or elsewhere but here it's a shallow tin, about 1.5" deep or so you need the shallowness or the cake will be horrific)

8 oz SR flour (use wholemeal if you fancy being more healthy)
8oz caster sugar
8oz butter or good baking marge
3 eggs, beaten
two ripe bananas, mashed with some lemon juice to stop discolouration. three if they're under 6" long.

beat butter and sugar together until light beige in colour and fluffy in texture. add a dribble of egg and a small spoonful of flour. beat until this is worked in. add a small bit of banana and a little flour. work in. keep adding in small amounts until it's all worked in. pour into greased baking tins and bake in 180 degree celcius oven until you can shove a skewer in the middle and have it come out clean.
