Quarantine Banana Bread
Learning to be a better baker has been on my new year's resolution list for the past several years.
While I can intuitively create cooking recipes, baking takes a level of precision and chemistry that I just haven't quite yet figure out. Luckily, my best friend Abby is an amazing baker.
Here is her banana bread recipe 🤍
1 cup sugar
3 Tbsp salted butter
3 Tbsp sour milk (1 tsp vinegar in 1/2 cup milk)
2 cup flour
1 tsp baking soda
2-3 overripe mashed bananas
1 cup walnuts (if desired)
Preheat oven to 350
Grease and flour glass bread pan
Beat sugar, butter, eggs and sour milk
Combine flour and baking soda in separate bowl, sift into sugar mixture
Mash bananas and stir into batter, do not over mix. Add nuts if you like.
Bake for 50mins-1 hr, until top springs back up when pressed (if you use a dark colored pan, start testing readiness after 45 mins)
Let stand for 15 mins then remove from pan
For sticky top (the best) put into fridge until cooled through.
Serve in thick slices w butter if preferred, can quickly fry a slice on a pan to toast it.
