Banana Bread Help: Recipe


While we're all doing our best to protect ourselves, our families, and our communities from the spread of Covid-19, for many of us staying home isn't a safe option. This guide was created to help you or someone you know discreetly learn about identifying domestic violence, the resources available to you, and connecting you with a few people who can help you change your life. 
Covid-19 has worsened circumstances and factors that add to violent relationships including day-to-day stress, financial problems, and power dynamics. The pandemic has caused strain on many households and has added to already difficult situations. Many reported cases of domestic violence cite Covid-19 as a factor that added to or caused abuse in their household.
The library has partnered with the pro-bono legal team at North Suburban Legal Aid Clinic to provide education and points of contact for people experiencing intimate partner violence. We hope this info helps you or someone you love find a way out. Remember, you are not alone.
Why "Banana Bread"? The name was inspired by the video under the Kitchen Helpers tab.

Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Lightly grease a 9x5-inch loaf pan.

In a large bowl, combine flour, baking soda, and salt. In a separate bowl, cream together butter and brown sugar. Stir in eggs and mashed bananas until well blended. Stir banana mixture into flour mixture; stir just to moisten. Pour batter into prepared loaf pan.

Bake in preheated oven for 60 to 65 minutes, until a toothpick inserted into center of the loaf comes out clean. Let bread cool in pan for 10 minutes, then turn out onto a wire rack.
