Banana Bread
It's 4.40pm Malawi time. Just got back from Syahmi's school. Went to watch his football match. Though they lost, but what's important is the team spirit. And not to forget the moral support from the parents ! Just 4 moms there, can create quite a 'noise' ! Hahaha! Since I am feeling quite exhausted, so I'll cut short all these grandmother stories and straight to the recipe. I've tried baking this Banana Bread a few days ago...well, it was nice...but it looks and tastes more like a cake.....I got this recipe from Forum.Cari but I am very sorry as I forgot to write down, who's the owner of this recipe. Thousand apologies...insyaAllah, if I manage to get hold of the name, I'll edit this entry....anyway, thanks to whoever it is...thank you....


Ingredients :

2 ripe bananas ~ mashed
115g butter
75g light brown sugar
1/2 teaspoon cinnamon powder
1/2 teaspoon ginger powder
large pinch of ground cloves
2 eggs ~ lightly beaten
175g self raising flour
1 tablespoon milk ~ optional
50g walnut or pecan nut ~ chopped

Method :

1. Preheat oven to 180 celcius
2. Grease and line a loaf tin.
3. Beat butter and sugar till light and creamy.
4. Add in spices, eggs and flour. Mix till well combined.
(**The mixture should be thin enough to fall easily off a spoon. If t's too thick, add milk)
5. Fold in the mashed bananas and nuts into the mixture.
6. Pour the mixture into the prepared loaf tin.
7. Bake for about an hour or until skewer comes out clean when inserted.

Note :
1. Instead of groud cloves, I've substitute it with 1/2 teaspoon of mixed spices.
2. If you don't have self-raising flour, you can actually do it yourself at home. I got this from a cake book of mine : 150g flour + 2 level teaspoons baking powder, sift trice. Some books may ask you to add a pinch of salt as well.
3. Instead of 1 tablespoon, I have to put 5 tablespoons of fresh milk to get the thin consistency.
4. I didn't put any nuts in because the kids doesn't like nuts.
5. Comment from my tester, this time, my driver : If I put more bananas into the mixture, it'll taste better

To Zack : GOOD LUCK in your experiment....I do hope this time you'll get better results huh. For your information, I experimented a new pizza base recipe today and I actually took the photos, almost step by step, just like someone once suggested to me. But that'll have to wait....till next time...huhuhu......

When I reached home just now, I found this by the garage door.........

So if it's true, then no baking on Saturday....
