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.
