Homemade bread of any kind is a comfort food in my book, but when somebody makes homemade bread that is healthy, AND tastes good….well….more power to them. Today I am introducing the most important member of our cooking team, the person who taught me how to cook. Queenbee. She is the one that laid the foundation that I have built upon, Queenbee is my inspiration in life. When I ruin recipes, she fixes them. She is always there for me exactly when I need her most. Banana Bread is one of the first things she taught me how to make. (She still makes it better than I do). I remember stirring the ingredients in a mixing bowl while she added them and tasting the sweet batter before she put the flour in…did I say that out loud? I could share with you many memories of all the things she has taught me how to cook and bake, but this one is enough for today.
The Ingredients: 2 1/2 old bananas, 1 cup dark brown sugar, 2 cups whole wheat flour, 1 egg, 1/2 cup vanilla almond milk (more if needed), 1/2 tsp. baking soda, 1 tsp. salt, 1 tsp. cinnamon, 1/4 tsp. nutmeg,
Place bananas in the bowl of a mixer, beat until pureed. Add baking soda and mix for 15 seconds on medium speed. Add sugar and the egg, mix until combined. Add flour and milk in alternating batches until combined. Finally, add salt, cinnamon, and nutmeg. Mix until just combined. Bake at 350 degrees for 45-50 minutes. Butter the bread and serve while warm.
