    The recipe calls for billing water but doesn’t say how much to use, does it have to be dissolved in the boiling water?

    Thank you for catching this — I’ve emailed my mom and am waiting on an answer.I’m sure the baking powder amount is wrong as well. Goodness. I can’t believe I didn’t double check what was originally given to me. Ah, — the good people who kindly catch mistakes!! Much obliged!

    Ok, here is what I have now….
    1/2 c butter
    1 c sugar
    cream them thoroughly then cream in the 2 eggs, going one at a time.
    2 c all-purpose flour
    1/4 tsp salt
    1/2 tsp baking powder
    Stir together the three dry ingredients listed.
    Mash 3-4 bananas to get 1 c.
    Add 1 tsp baking soda to 1/4 c boiling water.
    Add water mixture to banana mash, mixing thoroughly.
    Add 1 tsp vanilla to this wet mixture.
    NOTE: if bananas are not super ripe, you may need a bit more water (up to 4 tbsp) to loosen up the batter.
    Continue as recipe in posting has for cooking, temps, etc.

    I think Mum was looking at more than one recipe when I got it. I hope this is more complete 😉
