Drum roll please....
There is another video in the works, this time I'm making banana bread. Most banana bread tends to be on the dry side. But by adding a brown sugary crust and perhaps an extra ounce or two of bananas and replacing the white sugar with brown sugar, my banana bread disappears into eager mouths.
Here is the recipe, with the video to follow shortly.
2/3 c. BROWN SUGAR
1/3 c. softened butter
In a mixing bowl, cream sugar, butter, and eggs.
1 3/4 all purpose flour (unbleached, of course)
2 tsp baking powder
1/2 tsp sea salt
1/4 tsp baking soda
In a separate bowl, combine dry ingredients. Slowly incorporate dry ingredients into wet ingredients (you don't want a flour face!)
1 c mashed bananas (2-3 soft & ripe)
On a low speed, add bananas (and walnuts if preferred).
Pour into a greased loaf pan and sprinkle top generously with brown sugar. Bake approximately 1 hour. Add little pats of butter to the top after you take it out of the oven. This will create the yummy sugary crust. Let your bread cool for 10 minutes in the pan and then turn it out onto a wire wrack to completely cool.
This bread is great with butter or cream cheese. Or, for a really yummy treat, saute a slice in a little butter and top with chocolate sauce. Mmmm...
