Banana bread

Partially Failed experiment.

I am finding it very difficult to get the right texture and flavor in this banana bread.
I have very high standards since my mother in law makes the best banana bread in the world. (her recipe is right
here )

This recipe comes out with awesome flavor but the inside stays gooey and unappetizing.

I say partially because I am going to try them as pancakes. They should be thin enough as pancakes to cook all the way through.
That’s the theory. Keep your fingers crossed.

If it works, that will be the next recipe I post.

Banana ice cream

I may just have to change the name of my blog to “bananas”, at the rate I’m going.

This simple, single ingredient, icecream is sooooo quick and easy.

Peel 5 ripe bananas and stick into a ziplock bag into the freezer for 1 hour.
Pull out and put into a blender or food processer and blend until smooth and creamy.

Makes 2/3rds of a quart – aproximately and tastes wonderful.
I thought maybe I’d add chocolate next time and see.
