If you find that your bananas aren’t getting soft enough when you make banana bread, peel them first, and slice them into rounds. Then, add them to a large bowl and mix in all of their ingredients – including the baking soda. You can mix them all up completely before you put the bowl in the stand mixer. To perfectly mix the ingredients, use a rubber knife to scrape the bowl into rough areas. Then, add the wet ingredients to the dry ingredients and begin your recipe.
If you find that your bananas are not getting blended well into the batter, there are a few things you can do. First, you might not have to add as much water or other liquid. Try increasing the amount of air in the bowl by mixing in about two cups of water per bowl full. This will make the batter less sticky.

The longer you leave it out, the harder it is going to be to get it to stick together properly. If you don’t freeze it completely, the cereal will melt and you’ll have a disaster on your hands. You should also make sure that you cut off any excess seeds before you freeze it so that your recipe will come out perfect every single time.
