Recipe Showcase: Banana Bread

If you have been a reader for awhile, you’ll remember my disastrous attempt to make homemade bread. I haven’t attempted any type of bread since (partially due to fear and partially due to 1st trimester nausea at every.single.smell) but I figured a dessert bread would be safe. I had half a bunch of bananas that were too ripe for my liking and my students recommended that I make banana bread out of it. Thank you, students!

I used this recipe from allrecipes.com – just a note, 2 1/3 cups of mashed bananas is around 4.5 medium-sized bananas. I have to say, it turned out really well. It was tasty and didn’t look too bad, either 😉 So now that I’ve got my mojo back, maybe I’ll start making some other breads. Anyone have a good whole-wheat flour bread recipe?

Recipe Showcase: Homemade Bread

Well, I tried (unsuccessfully) to make homemade bread this week. While it looked pretty and everything seemed to go as planned, it got way too crusty too quick and the middle didn’t cook. It also tasted bland.

So, I’m back to square one with bread. Any good recipes for me to try? I need to find something that will work without being too crusty.
