Seize the moment.
Remember all those women on the Titanic who waved off the dessert cart.
~Erma Bombeck

Don't ever waive off the dessert cart!  Here is a goodie--and fairly healthy too--made with good, whole ingredients and not too much sugar!

2 ripe bananas (about 1 cup, mashed)
1/4 cup butter 
1/2 cup brown sugar,packed
2 eggs
1/2 cup sour milk or buttermilk (to sour milk, squeeze a few drops of lemon in and let it sit for 10 min)
2 cups flour
2 tsp baking powder
1/2 tsp salt
1 tsp almond extract

Mix flour, baking powder, soda and salt.  Cream butter, add sugar and cream some more.  Add eggs and mix until fluffy.  Add the mashed banana and extract to the milk and add alternately with the flour mixture to the creamed mixture.  When blended pour into a greased bread pan and bake at 350degrees for 45 min-1hour. this sliced and spread generously with butter and/or jam!
