  1. Jacquie, when you speak about the bananas, are you speaking about ripe ones or can one use over ripe ones which have been kept in the freezer? I ask you because I had some that were starting to get over ripe and were a bit funky to eat, so I popped them in the freezer, where the skin has (of course) gone completely black; but are still good to use. I've been wanting to use them, but was not quite sure if they would go good in a banana bread. Let me know because I would love to try this recipe out. Thanks. Leyla XOXO
