Preheat the oven to F. Add the 1 teaspoon of apple cider vinegar. Mix well and set aside. In a large bowl, cream together the margarine and sugars. Add the wet ingredients — mashed bananas, soy milk, and vanilla and strawberry extracts — and mix well. Add the salt, cinnamon, and baking soda and sift in the flour, mixing until the batter is smooth and relatively creamy. Mix in the diced strawberries; toss in a second handful if desired. Pour the batter into a prepared bread pan, evening out the top with a rubber spatula.
Banana bread is pretty much my favorite use for overripe bananas — except MAYBE for banana bread banana ice cream! It took me at least three tries before I got it right, you guys. Exhibit B: The recommended bake time for this bread, which is 25 to 30 minutes. Actually I thought it was a typo but whatever. After that I let it go for a half hour and then started checking on it every ten minutes or so. Even then, the bottom quarter of the loaf remained a little undercooked, as I discovered when I cut it open. On the plus side, I am hella glad I lined the pan with parchment paper as directed.
I hate hate hate trying to cram and jam parchment paper into deep pans, but it totally paid off here. While the lower portion of the crust ended up thicker than normal, the paper kept it from burning outright. The bread itself is tasty enough, though a little plain; I think some walnuts or chocolate chips could work wonders with it. The center seemed to firm up a bit overnight, and it only got better when toasted. I reheated a slice in the toaster oven — about ten minutes at F — and it seemed a little closer to done after that.
And a thick slice is actually hearty enough that it filled me up for an entire meal. It took me a month just to get the bananas together for this recipe! I mean, I hate wasting monies, and once I fall into a baking rut, it can sometimes prove difficult to pull myself out. Banana Bread it was. Chocolate Banana Bread, to be exact. And you know what? I just have two BGV dishes under my belt, but still.
The pancakes are thick and hearty, and really do taste a lot like banana bread. Blueberries are my most favorite of all the fruits. Seriously, I cannot tell you how much I love this stuff, whether straight out of the food processor. Tastes just like banana bread. But healthier! And chilly! No hot oven required! What more could you ask of a summertime treat? That second pic, by the by, represents my best attempt at staging. Makes about a quart of ice cream; updated from the original version. Put the bananas in the food processor and pulse until smoothly blended. If necessary, add a splash of non-dairy milk or creamer to get things moving!
Before putting them in the food processor, break them up into smaller chunks with a butter knife. Note: Since introducing extra liquids such as non-dairy milk into the mix results in a slightly icier finished product, I prefer defrosting to non-dairy milk. Any sugar works fine — white, brown, etc. Add the vanilla, cinnamon, allspice, and chocolate chips and pulse until well-blended.
Sample the batter and any extra spices to taste. Transfer the ice cream to an airtight container.

Store any leftovers in the freezer in an airtight container. If the frozen banana ice cream proves too hard to scoop, microwave it for ten seconds to help loosen it up or let the container sit on the counter for ten to thirty minutes prior to eating, depending on room temp. Serve with sprinkles, chocolate chips, or extra bananas to garnish — or sandwich a scoop between two slices of banana bread for a special snack!
I hope you are doing well this week.
