In other BBA news, I mixed up a new batch of dough tonight and threw in two handfulls of wheat germ. I think it'll give the loaves a nice nutty taste. I'll let you know how it turns out.
Lastly, but also of notable BBA importance...I finally liberated 6 bananas out of the freezer to make two loaves of banana bread. I have a fantastic recipe for banana bread that has gotten rave reviews everywhere I take it.
1 stick sweet cream butter (unsalted)
- cream butter & sugar
- add eggs - mix
- mash bananas & add to mixture
- add flour, vanilla & pecans (if desired)
- bake @ 325 for 55 min. (loaf pan) or 30 min. (cupcakes)
A few notes:
The kiddos love to mash the bananas! Hand 'em a fork and let them mush bananas to smithereens!
I've made this with half white flour & half wheat as well and been quite pleased with the results.
I never throw out a banana. Overripe ones go in the freezer then I thaw them as needed for bread. They look terrible when they thaw, but you just rip off the end and squeeze out the banana like toothpaste. I swear these make the best bread ever!
Also, I don't like chopping pecans so I add them whole. It's rather tasty to bite into a chunk of pecan!
