Banana Bread. Ah yes.
I tried to make some last week, but forgot that food spoils here rather quickly so the bananas we had bought the week before were, um, bad. So then tonight I went to make it (with new bananas!) and went rummaging through our spice cabinet for the vanilla. Pookie told me it was in a tall brown bottle so I grabbed the one that matched her description. I was about to put it in when I double-checked the label and saw it said "Worcester sauce"... not exactly the taste of vanilla! So I went to borrow some from Krinny, but she didn't have any so instead I substituted sweetened condensed milk instead! Everything looked good and that's when I popped it into the *ahem* oven:
Our "oven" is really a toaster oven... that thing on the top to the left of the fridge. Last year it took us about two hours to bake lasagna, so that should give you some idea of the efficiency of the oven. By the way, I am NOT complaining; it is better than nothing!
So I put the bread in the oven and went to watch "The Beverly Hillbillies" with Berm and Pookie. About 20 minutes later, something smelled really good! I took out the bread, tested it, and realized that only the top layer was done. Because I didn't want to, you know, charcoal it, I took off the top layer and then stuck the bottom part back in. 20 minutes later and that part was done too!
It wasn't beautiful to look at, but it was good, especially with butter on top of the hot bread... yum, yum!
I just won't show you a picture of the pan, that's all:o).
