This weekend, I made burned bread pudding, soupy chocolate pie, and a bowl of cereal instead of a real dinner.
That’s one major recipe fail. Which has the potential to lead to a major blog fail for the week.
But guess what? I can think of one thing which is virtually fail-proof, and that’s butter, sugar and flour. And by butter, sugar and flour, I mean banana bread.
Hello, Maple Banana Bread. Maybe I’m not a failure after all.
To console myself, I ate three pieces, with butter.
Then I watched my sister’s wedding video.
Banana bread, wedding videos, and short posts on Mondays.
All is right in the world.
- ½ cup white sugar
- ½ cup brown sugar
- ½ cup butter, soft
- 2 eggs
- 3-4 large bananas, mashed
- 1 teaspoon maple flavoring
- 1½ cups flour
- ½ cup oatmeal
- 1 teaspoon baking soda
- Mix all ingredients through maple flavoring. Add last three ingredients and mix until just combined. Pour into a greased 9×5 pan and bake at 350 for 45-50 minutes. Do not overbake.
Monday, you are here too soon.
I didn’t even iron my clothes yet. Grr.
