a ginormous loaf of banana bread per my roommate's request as her bananas were depreciating rapidly in the humidity and heat. (no, steph, i did not buy bananas, but you cannot let bananas go to waste...think of the starving children...)
I used the recipe from the King Arthur Flour Baking Book. It was a STUPENDOUS present. there were just a few ingrediants that I didn't have on hand.
You start w/...
1 cup of sugar
1/3 cup of vegetable oil (i used canola)
2 large eggs
1 cup of mashed bananas (i used three; two is ok, apparently)
1 tsp of vanilla extract (i used lemon extract instead)
this is supposed to be whisk and sifted together:
2 2/3 cups of flour
1 tsp baking soda
1 tsp baking powder
1 tsp salt
1 tsp cinnamon
1/2 tsp nutmeg
after dumping that in all at once, and only stir til it's JUST mixed up
Add: 1 cup of yogurt
and after that's just mixed in, pour into a greased and floured loaf pan (i didn't flour mine, HORRORS.)
350 for the oven. If it browns at 40 minutes, put an aluminum tent over it. and it should bake for an hour. I had to extend my baking time 15 minutes. poke it w/ a sharp object and it should come out clean. Make sure you hit bottom. I used the biggest loaf pan ever and it STILL was huge.
It is recommended that it be eaten w/ ice cream on top or toast it w/ cream cheese. I have a mind to try french toast. or make these into muffins.
