Also, two parties of people devoured 2 full loaves of banana bread, and I have a new favorite banana bread recipe, based on this one
.4 or 5 overly ripe bananas
(depending on the size), mashed up with one egg
and 1/4 cup yogurt
and 1/4 cup fat (vegetable oil, olive oil, butter)
and 1/2 cup + 2 tbs sugar and 2 tbs molasses
(or 3/4 cup brown sugar, but we don't stock it around here; easier to just keep sugar and molasses around). Mix in 2 cups flour
, 3/4 teaspoon baking soda
and 1/2 teaspoon salt
. In my oven, 350 degrees for 40 to 50 minutes (lower if you preheat, higher if you don't bother), until a tester comes clean.
Easy, dense, moist, and not too sweet.
Next up is trying it with applesauce instead of the fat. Then, with carob chips, olive oil for the fat, and coconut. Or maybe crystalized ginger and coconut.
