What my degree in IPE didn't teach me about baking, DIY, fitness, and life…
It’s been awhile, but I have a recipe for you. The renovations continue. I’ve got lots of pictures of walls coming down. It’s getting exciting (and noisy). More on that later, but for now I have something tasty for you to do with some brown bananas. Anybody else have bananas speed ripening in this heat?!
Anyway, we had a party last Sunday and there were leftovers. Leftovers are always a really great excuse to do some baking. I had a half an egg, 2 browning bananas, a half a container of sour cream…
I knew exactly what I wanted to make – banana bread. When we were in the States visiting my parents, there was a glut of bananas. So I looked up a recipe and made a bread. It was tasty and it disappeared fast, but it wasn’t quite what I was hoping for. Banana bread is one of the few things I remember baking with my mom. She had this special slotted spoon that we would use to mash the bananas into smithereens. The bread was always moist and wonderful with these little black flecks (I’m still not quite sure what they were). My leftovers provided the perfect opportunity to try again. This time I went to my recipe book drawer. I wanted something more like a bread than a cake. Here’s what I ended up with.
Super cute and delicious, don’t you think!! =)
Wanna make some too?
