I was working on a one-bowl banana bread recipe today, trying to simplify an already simple recipe. ( here is the final recipe )
Surfing the web, I found there are a lot of complicated recipes for banana bread: using cake mixes, Bisquic, all sorts of odd stuff. Why does is have to be?
I did succeed in making a one bowl banana bread that tastes real good. At least I think so.
But, I learned a great lesson in the process.
I had tossed in the walnuts into the 'wet' mix, not thinking about what would happen afterward, and then when I added the flour, I found out what would happen.
The flour coats the walnuts. not good.
After you bake the bread, you get little pockets of white flour around the nooks of the walnuts.
Another lesson learned here on Gardenfork for me.
what have you learned in baking or life lately? tell us in the comments below:
Just put a loaf of this in the oven and will let you know how it turns out. Used half and half with white wine vinegar added because I only had 1% milk and thought half and half would be closer to the consistency of buttermilk or yoghurt.
Currently have this baking in the oven, I put the walnuts in after the flour but would recommend putting them in before putting in the oven, I forgot to and had to take it back out, it had been in for less than a minute but I hope it still rises OK.
I forget to score the bread when making my five minute artisan bread. I forget to do it so often that I have put up Post-It Notes above the counter where I form the loaves and on the door to the oven and even then sometimes I forget. I guess I just get excited. 😀
