I made banana bread today, too! (Banana oatmeal bread, to be specific.) Yours looks great. (Mine looks spongy. Because it IS spongy.)

Hey FP! My favorite bread in the whole wide world is banana bread, however I still can't figure out how to make it moist and dense.

Mmm oatmeal and banana bread, that's a great combo! I smeared a layer of oatmeal, brown sugar, and flour on top of mine.

Tried posting this yesterday, not sure if it went through. Forgive if this is repeat. I am fascinated with this food journal. I guess I expected someone so tiny to eat so little. You eat, girl. I love that!

Hey Mae,

nope not a double post.

hahaha, i love to eat, sadly enough my metabolism is slowing down (due to old age) and er, the food just doesn't get burned up as fast as before. hence the food journal.

you've seen how i gorged down those dimsums... :)

Mutha Mae said...

Ahh but dim sum doesn't count. Didn't you hear? There's no calories in Sunday dim sum! The kind Chinese chefs remove them before serving. That's why you can have unlimited servings. Nice, huh! heh

Banana-Oatmeal Bread
1 1/4 cup all-purpose flour
1/2 cup unpacked brown sugar
1/2 tsp table salt
1/2 tsp baking soda
1/4 tsp baking powder
3 tsp canola oil
1 large egg(s), beaten
2 medium egg white(s), beaten
3 large banana(s), ripe
1 cup uncooked old fashioned oats

Preheat oven to 350°F. In a large bowl, stir together dry ingredients (except for oats). Add oil and eggs; mix thoroughly.

In a smaller bowl, mash bananas with a potato masher or fork. Add bananas and oatmeal to batter.

Spray a loaf pan with cooking spray. Pour batter into pan and bake until top of loaf is firm to touch, 45 to 55 minutes. Remove from oven and allow to cool in pan for 5 minutes. Flip out and cool on a wire rack for another 10 minutes.

Eat until your pants explode.

Mae: ITA on the dim sum point.

FP: Thanks for the recipe. I will definitely give that a try. Looking forward to exploding pants.
