Emily and I decided to make Banana bread. I needed
to make a visit to a couple of our shut-ins and I
always try to take them some kind of goodies when
I go. Emily loves to help with baking. She is
very good at following directions. We love
to do these things together. Plus, it makes
the house smell sooooo good.
( I am trying to lose weight again, though, so
it makes it awfully tempting. It helped that as
soon as the bread cooled, I left for my visit)
Scooping the mashed bananas into the flour mixture
do the mixing by hand. But, we couldn't get
it mixed well enough. What did they do in
old days before electric mixers?????
The batter just before we put it in the oven
The finished project.
In my busyness, I forgot to get a picture of the
loaf as it looked when it came out the oven, but
take my word for it, it looked very tasty. I
DID, however, remember to get a picture
of it sliced.
(And by the way, I DID take one teeny bite~just
to make sure that it was going to be good)
I make it a practice to taste everything that
goes out of my house~just in case~I wouldn't
want anyone to think I was a terrible cook!! ;)
