Banana is a weird fruit.
It is not juicy, nor is it crunchy. When it becomes like this, the taste
and texture is even more awful. We are not fond of bananas.
The only time I buy bananas is to make desserts.
When they are made into either banana chiffon cake or
banana bread, it seems that it has transformed itself.
The aroma of ripened banana from the cake fills the air in the
house. It is so flavorful that no one can resist.
那個味道 口感等 都不受我們喜歡
它的香味 讓這個原來不受歡迎的水果 瞬間變成寵兒
連最討厭吃香蕉的女兒 都頻頻讚美它的美味 一塊又一塊的吃
This banana bread was made a few days ago at night.
I don’t like adding leavening agents such as baking powder or soda.
I usually make chiffon cakes by beating the egg whites enough so that
I don’t need to use any baking powder. As for banana bread, it is a little
bit tricky. If I whip up the eggs like chiffon cake, then it loses the texture
as banana bread. But I still want to cut down the amount of baking soda.
這是好幾天前 傍晚做的 我一向不喜歡使用蛋糕發粉或小蘇打
但是香蕉蛋糕比較不同 就定義來說 它不是蛋糕 但也不是麵包
打得太發 就變成是蛋糕的組織 就不能稱做是banana bread
There are many ways of making banana bread. You can cream butter
and sugar first, then add eggs and so on. Or you can just mix all the
ingredients together if using liquid oil rather than butter. Unflavored
yogurt can be added to increase its moisture. Nuts can be added. There are
many variations in making it.
In order to cut down the baking soda, I whipped the eggs with
sugar but not to the extent of making a sponge cake. I also
used yogurt and canola oil.
We like to eat banana bread warm. I baked this for an after school snack.
My little one enjoyed it so much that we finished this in no time.
Banana bread is not technically like bread that contains yeast.
It is just a quick bread that has a texture in between bread and
cake. It is a hearty snack and very easy to make. The
key point is to not overmix the batter. It is just that simple.
Anybody can make this. You don’t need a packaged mix.
