I’m having some griefs with links and pages. Here are Three Restaurant Reviews:
When outside looks like this:
And the temperature is indicating minus 27 degrees, there isn’t much motivation to venture outside. Sure the snow looks gorgeous and pearly, but there’s gotta be more of an incentive than mother nature’s picture perfect good looks.
It’s times like these where I want the house to be emanating with wonderful, homey aromas. And maybe if I’ve done a good job, woodland creatures will be knocking at my door to check out my piece de resistance.
A year ago, Bob was wondering what to do with the brown bananas that were looking forlorn on our kitchen table. He decided to take the plunge and make banana bread. Out of all the recipes on the internet, he stumbled upon Flour’s Famous Banana Bread. For us, it is The best banana bread recipe out there. My mum is more of a fan of a lighter version of banana bread where she whips the egg whites separately and folds them into the batter. I prefer banana bread because I enjoy its hearty density.
Flour’s Famous Banana Bread
Set oven to 350 degrees F. Line the bottom of a loaf pan with parchment paper.
Sift together the flour, baking soda, cinnamon and salt. Beat sugar and eggs with a whisk until light and fluffy, about 10 minutes. Drizzle in oil. Add mashed bananas, creme fraiche, and vanilla. Fold in dry ingredients and nuts. Pour into a lined loaf pan and bake for about 45 minutes to 1 hour.
I know that the egg beating time is a little on the longer side, but if you have a stand mixer it’ll do most of the work for you. I have a stand mixer, but the professional grade mixing bowl that it comes with is too big for such a small batch. So, I used my little hand mixer and it does the job just fine. Plus The Mummy Returns was on tee vee today so I just popped that on the tube and watched that while I beat the eggs and sugar together.
Today I used a mini bread loaf pan and the final product is looking pretty good. I’m feeling great about making something so healthy today because lunch consisted of two donuts and bacon. Ugh.
