banana bread mmm
i made banana bread the other day. and then took pictures. so that i could write about it. in my blog.banana bread
3 over-ripe bananas* (mostly brown)
1/3 cup butter, softened
3/4 cup sugar
1 tsp. vanilla
3/4 cup whole wheat flour
3/4 cup white flour
1 tsp. baking powder
1/2 tsp. cinnamon
pinch of salt
3/4 cup pecans, chopped (optional)
*most recipes i saw called for 3 or 4 ripe bananas, but i only had 2, so i added 1/2 cup of applesauce, which made the bread really moist and still tasted alot of bananas.
mash bananas to lumpy consistency. add butter, sugar, eggs and vanilla. stir until mostly mixed. add dry ingredients (sift if you wish) and blend. do not overmix so much that there are no banana lumps. [nut note: if you want nuts in your bread, add them now. i just sprinkled them on top because i was indecisive about whether i would like them or not]
spoon into greased loaf pan and bake for 55-60 minutes at 350 F. enjoy! i like mine toasted in the morning w/butter.
and then it snowed. and not nice fluffy snow. ugly cold sleet snow.
