hello blogpeeps. haven't i been useless at updating?!
a week or two ago someone left a comment on victoria's site about banana bread. and that was it, i had to have it! so i dug out a recipe (ok, i found it online) and it's so good that i've got to share it. it is totally kick ass, not too sweet, and plenty moist. yep, that's how we like it.

Banana Bread


3 large bananas (enough to mash 1 cup)
1 cup sweetener (i use rice syrup but you can use sugar)
egg substitute for 1 egg (or, you know, an egg..)
4 tablespoons applesauce (it's so american!)
1 and 1/2 cups flour (I use mostly whole wheat)
1 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 teaspoon salt


With a mixer, beat the mashed bananas with the sugary stuff. Add the egg (/replacer) and applesauce and beat again.

In another bowl, mix the dry ingredients. Add this to the banana mixture and stir with a spoon until the dry stuff is all moistened. Not too much stirring!

Pour batter into a loaf pan, preferrably non-stick but i'm way too old school for that so i just oil the tin.

Bake at about 160 c (be sure to preheat first) for about 55 minutes. it takes a bit less time with fan bake.
