Lets hear it for the Boys
Well who doesn't love a quick bread? Who??? I want names!!!
I for one do enjoy a quick bread. Both for the quickness of preparation and for the eating enjoyment.
Now when I first saw we were making this bread, I had reservations. Honey, Banana and Poppy Seeds??? All in one bread??? <insert look of doubt> Really?? I don't think I've ever put honey and bananas together. And I most certainly haven't put poppy seeds with bananas.
But you know what? I'm going to move forward and start this recipe. Far be it from me to doubt the
The only thing I'm going to change about this recipe, is the vegetable oil. I recently purchased my first jar of coconut oil. I know this isn't a new thing, but it is new to me.
|Yep, looks like oil in the back there.|
This is a pretty easy recipe. Just need to mix the wet ingredients together in one bowl and then the dry ingredients into another bowl.
Butter up a loaf pan (hey, you're looking good) and then dust with some flour.
|Poppy seeds waiting to be added|
|My well over floweth|
After the wet and dry has been incorporated, throw in the poppy seeds. Yep, I did it.
|Poppy seeds...NOT pepper|
And now just pour this odd mixture into the loaf pan. (still looking good there, loaf pan)
Pop this into a 350 degree oven for an hour, and Bob's your Uncle. And if he's not, well it was the 60's your folks lived a crazy life. (and we'll leave it at that) Awkward. But not nearly as awkward as putting poppy seeds into a banana bread. My awkward meter may be broken.
It has been an hour and this banana bread is smelling awesome!! But it looks like it will need that extra 10 minutes. I love the smell of banana bread in the morning.
I shall now pray to the kitchen gods to let this bread taste as good as it smells.....even though it has both honey and poppy seeds in it. (reservations for two, please)
How long is 'cool completely'? Would I not need to cut into the bread to see if it was indeed completely cooled? And what if when I cut into it, I noticed that it wasn't completely cooled? What then? hmm?
The bread has cooled sufficiently. And I am cutting into it. Still feeling a little anxious about those strange additions of honey and poppy seeds.
Bravo Baked Boys....Bravo.
