Banana Bread: No Mixer Needed
There are several recipes backed up that I wanted to write about first. However, I've had this blogging malaise settle over me and can't quite seem to get my fingers moving to type them up. However, however, I've got three bananas that won't wait any longer to either be baked or explode. So banana bread it is.
If you've been with me for a while, you'll have noticed that while it's not one of my favorites, banana bread just keeps getting made. I've tried quite a few recipes in the past, but here's another one. Simply Recipes is a good go-to blog for nearly no-fail recipes. Plus, since I'm in a temporary residence, this doesn't require a mixer which *sob* is packed.
After a very stupid flour argument which went basically like this: "I don't have enough flour! Wait, maybe I do. No, it won't make it" then of course I ran to the store, picked up a bag, and "Oh shit, I did have enough." Aside from that, it was very easy to put together. I reduced the sugar to 3/4 cup as suggested and added half a bag of chocolate chips that needed to be used.
The result? Very tasty. I overbaked, so it was a little harder than I like on the edges, but nothing that would stop me from eating every tiny piece. Excuse the crap photo below, I'm rusty.
