How do I ripen bananas fast?

If you have bananas that not yet ripe enough to make banana bread with there are a few ways that you can ripen them. If left alone, the bananas will ripen in about 24-48 hours, when stored together as a bunch. In order to ripen the bananas faster, put the bananas in a warm place. This will riped the bananas in about 12-24 hours. If you need the bananas faster, you can heat them in the oven. Set the oven to 300 degrees and bake the bananas for 15 to 30 minutes. The skins will be black and shiny when they are done. You also do this in the microwave for about 30 seconds to two minutes.

Can I freeze this banana bread crumb cake?

When you make this banana bread crumb cake you can enjoy it for several days before it goes bad. Store it in an airtight container or in a freezer bag. The cake is best at room temperature however, you can store it in the refrigerator too. If you find that you have more cake than you will be able to eat, you can store this banana bread crumb cake in the freezer. The cake will last for about 3 months in the freezer. Wrap the cake in plastic wrap first and then put it in a freezer bag to keep it from getting freezer burn.

I like to cut the cake into slices before I freeze it. This way, I can take out slices as I am ready to eat them instead of having to bring out the whole cake. When it is time to thaw the slices, bring the cake out of the freezer and leave it on the counter to thaw.
