I would like to talk to you about bananas, for a moment or two.Yes, I wish to discuss bananas,No, I am not going bananas.I just wish to chat about them with you.Is that alright with you? Good.
we know that bananas are yellow, while oranges are orange.We call the orange one an orange, but we call the yellow one a banana.That hardly seems fair.I just do not know if it is unfair to the banana, or unfair to the orange.Who knows?
Well, we may not have bananas for much longer in our lifetimes, or not the type of banana we are accustomed to.It is going extinct.Yes, you read that correctly.The banana is going the way of neanderthal man and the mammoth, it is going bye bye.
This story, and those it links is a good start for learning about this possible upcoming tragedy.Yes, it is a tragedy, especially if you enjoy this banana bread I am going to chit chat about.What are we to do! Won’t anyone think of the banana? Won’t anyone think of the children, the banana-less children!?
It is a possibly nightmarish story unfolding, and like most of my dating experiences, it may not end well.So be warned, banana lovers.
Banana Bread Ingredients.
- 2 and 1/2 cups of flour.
- 2-3 large-ish bananas.
- 1 and a half tablespoons of ginger.
- 2 teaspoons of allspice.
- 1 teaspoon of baking soda.
- 1/2 cup of brown sugar.
- 2 tablespoons of vegetable oil.
- 4 tablespoons of molasses.
- What would consist of 2 eggs using Egg-Replacer.
- 1 and 1/2 tablespoons of orange juice.
- 1/2 cup to a full cup of raisins.
You should probably begin by preheating your oven, I mean that is what I would suggest doing.If you feel like ignoring that, go for it.We will see how that works out for you.But, if you are listening, preheat your oven to 350 degrees.While you are at it, grease or spray a baking pan, I think mine was one of those 8 by 8 thingies.I am pretty sure ” thingies” is a proper cooking term.
In a bow, mix the flour, baking soda, sugar, allspice, and ginger.Yes, this is simple, isn’t it? Moving on, make a “well” or a hole in the middle of the flour, and pour in the molasses, orange juice, oil, egg-replacer, including the water the egg-replacer calls for, and mix that in your ” well”.
In another bowl, mash the bananas, and stir in the raisins.Now you may add this to your ” well” and then stir and mix the entire mixture.Pour the batter into the baking pan and cook for 30- 40 minutes.You can check it by stabbing it with a toothpick.
Slice into slices, and eat.I think this final instruction point may be the most critical, the most rewarding, and by far the simplest.My apologies to those who find eating troublesome.
