Still not a sewing project post...

Thursday, January 21, 2010

Ok, so this is not a sewing project, it's a cooking project. I LOVE banana bread, but my oldest isn't that into it. She LOVES apples though. So, I made a "Cinnamon Apple-Banana Bread." TADA! We all like that one was a given. I have already eaten a small sliver (or a large chunk) and it is yummers! I think it will please everyone in the fam AND it has some extra fruity-vitamin goodness! Enjoy! This recipe may be out there a million different ways already, I just made this one on a whim. Let me know if you change it up and make it even better!!

Cinnamon Apple-Banana Bread

Preheat oven to 350 degrees.

1/2 c sugar
1 egg
2 very ripe bananas, mashed
1/2 tsp vanilla
1/2 c oil (veg or canola)
1 tsp cinnamon (see footnote)
1 c flour
1/2 tsp baking powder
1/2 tsp baking soda
pinch of salt
1 apple, peeled and chopped (I used a Braeburn)

Cream egg and sugar together. Stir in mashed bananas, vanilla, oil and cinnmon and mix well. Stir in flour, baking powder, baking soda and salt. Fold in apple. Bake in a loaf pan (mine is a 9"X5") for 50-60 min. Makes one delicious loaf of morning goodness!

*This would be a normal amount of cinnamon for a normal family who likes medium cinnamony-ness. We like LOTS of I kinda shake some in there...keep shaking...keep shaking a little more...and then, viola, lots of cinnamon--just the way we like it!!
