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.
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.
