My corny brain thinks of Schoolhouse Rock! and Conjunction Junction where they use the conjunction to form the phrase 'peas & rice'. You remember, the two hobos are sitting in the train yard and they are around a fire having polite tea. I feel like that at times, sans politeness.
I decided to bake the 3 pounds of bananas (nanners for short) I have sitting there. I wanted to use them before they went bad. Well, One loaf I forgot to add baking soda and lets just say slime load is not appetizing at all.
Nanner Bread *(my alterations)
2 cups flour*
1 cups sugar*
3/4 teaspoon baking soda*
3/4 teaspoon of baking powder*
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 cup mashed bananas (3 Bananas)
1/2 cup vegetable Oil
'egg' mix: 2tbl canola oil, 2tbl flax seed, 2 tbl corn starch, 4 tbl boiling water (enough for 2 'eggs')*
1/3 cup soy-buttermilk
Preheat oven to 325 degrees F.
Mix flour, vegan sugar, baking soda and salt in a large mixing bowl.
Mix bananas, oil, and buttermilk in a medium mixing bowl.
Combine the banana mixture with the large bowl containing dry ingredients, and stir well. Add the Ener-G Egg Replacer in now, and stir well again. (Optional: add 1/2 cup pecans).
Pour into a greased 9x5 inch bread pan.
Bake in 325 degree oven for 1 hour and 15 minutes, or until a toothpick in the middle comes out clean.
The next loaves I added baking powder to the recipe because I didn't want nanners to settle at the bottom of the loaf and make it all heavy. The powder reduced that tremendously.
I also made some bread. I haven't bought bread in 3 years. The recipe I use allows for two loaves. I just freeze one and partake of the fresh loaf for the week. Yum.
Spinach quiche to be exact. I put everything in this, peas, carrots, onions, spices, lots of pepper, but the key is making sure its dry. I add about half a cup of whole wheat flour to dry up everything pretty good. I also pre bake the crust I use for about 10 minutes before I pour all the goodness in the dish. I get 4 good meals from this puppy.
