This is a new author for me, and I will be reviewing the newest Second Change Mystery soon. For now, enjoy this delicious recipe from the author.
In the Second Chance Cat mysteries you can always count on three things when it comes to those senior sleuths known as the Angels. One, they’re actually pretty good detectives. Two, they drink gallons of tea. And three, a cup of tea tastes better with a little something sweet on the side—at least according to Rose Jackson. Rose is often the source of those sweet treats, anything from oatmeal cookies to cinnamon coffeecake to her popular banana bread.
1 cup of mashed bananas
⅓ cup butter or margarine
⅔ cup white sugar
1 ¾ cups flour
1 ¼ teaspoons cream of tartar
¾ teaspoon baking soda
¼ teaspoon salt
Grease a loaf pan. Preheat oven to 350° F.
Cream the butter, sugar and eggs until light and fluffy. Whisk together the flour, cream of tartar, baking soda, and salt. Add alternately with the mashed bananas to the creamed ingredients. Mix well.
Pour into the loaf pan and bake for 45 to 50 minutes. Cool 10 minutes in the pan then remove and cool on a wire rack.

Thanks you Ms. Ryan. I can't wait to try this recipe out. Cozy mysteries have a rich tradition of including food and recipes. Do you enjoy recipes at the end of the book? Have you tried them? Good or bad results?
