I'm TERRIBLE at it,
as you know.
Click here to see what an impatient, horrible baker I am.
And to top it off,
my bananas are jerks!
But that didn't stop me from attempting this Pumpkin Banana Bread!
I saw this
recipe in a magazine and my mouth started watering so I threw caution to the wind and got my baking crap out again.
And this recipe was actually very easy and really quite tasty.
With some hot coffee and a little butter...
pretty darn yummy.
But in the meantime, let me just say...
My counters are clean!!!
that's called CLEAN for those of you who have never seen the Madsen's counters uh....clean.
Let me bring into evidence
Exhibit B: the counter by the stove and the actual stove.
They are looking weird to Angie, but that's because they are.......clean.
I didn't say my floor was clean though!!!
let's get to starting this Pumpkin-Banana Bread
Comfort Food magazine 2012.
And believe it or not, this was an easy recipe....even for me....
The recipe calls for toasted pecans, so I just threw some pecans in the oven on a baking sheet for five minutes.
YAY, I did not burn them this time.
It's the small successes in life.
Okay so let's get started with the sugar...
Add the eggs in one at a time.
Why do eggs have to be added in one at time?
It seems so, so time consuming.
ONE FREAKING FALLS ON THE GROUND!!!
this is the wet stuff together.
This is the flour, baking soda, salt, baking powder, cinnamon and ginger together.
Holy crap, grab onto your hats! This is the exciting dry stuff going into the wet stuff and getting mixed up.
Add the canned pumpkin in...
Mash up those mean, mouthy bananas
real good and dump them in.
now I can see light at the end of the tunnel here,
fold the toasted pecans in.
Pour the batter into the greased pans.
Bake for 50 to 60 minutes.
this is a gratuitous shot of my pretty platter with the Pumpkin-Banana Bread on it.
Slice up some of this light and delicious snack bread.
The toasted pecans are awful nice in this bread as well.
sit down for a spell,
and let's chat about the Bee Gees and their impact on the music world.
Hey wait!! Don't run a way!!!
What? You don't think the Bee Gees are the greatest artists of all time???!!????
That's okay, we can talk about other things. Wanna talk about polka and how Lawrence Welk is under appreciated? Well, how about the oppression of women over centuries of time...is that a better topic?
Well then answer this, who was cooler...Sgt. Pepper Anderson of Police Woman or Julie from The Mod Squad?
Seriously, come back!!! We'll talk about what you want to talk about................hey, you don't wanna happen to sing Sunshiney Day by the Partridge family with me, do you?
Why you squealing tires out of my driveway?
