Over the weekend, my bananas went bad. They became brown and soft, and I didn’t want to eat them, but I also didn’t want to throw them away. After watching many episodes of The Great British Baking Show in the past few days, I felt inspired.
I decided to make banana bread.
I’ve never made banana bread before, but I do enjoy baking. So after my run, I stopped at the local grocery store to pick up some butter, and got to work. I found an easy recipe online, and started mixing.
I didn’t let my butter soften enough before mixing it with the brown sugar, but eventually I got it. I didn’t have quite enough banana for what the recipe called, so I just used what I had. After looking at comments online, I realized that I could have added some applesauce to make up the difference.
As the bread was baking, our small condo smelled amazing. I couldn’t wait to try it.
Finally, it was finished, and I cut a piece for both me and my husband. It was a tiny bit dry, but it was pretty good. This was a great, easy recipe for me to try because next time, maybe I can spice it up a little more by adding chocolate chips or walnuts.
We both ended up going back for seconds.
