Banana Bread

Finally, another recipe! It’s tempting to believe this is gonna be some kind of cake – no, it actually isn’t, I wouldn’t want to have this for tea. But this banana bread was with me at races and bike tours, it’s baked energy and that’s it. Oh yeah, last time I made it it even tasted halfway decent, but you shouldn’t bet on that. Depending on how the bananas are the result may be anything between sponge cake and dwarf bread…

Take:

  • 4 bananas, mashed (The recipe said they should be a bit overripe. At my best go they were almost green. It might all be chance and nothing else.)
  • 1 egg
  • 3 tablespoons vegetable oil
  • 1/2 cup of milk
  • 75g sugar + 1 pack. vanilla sugar + a pinch of salt
  • 150g wheat flour + 150g full grain wheat flour (don’t skip this because of “Yuck, too healthy” – it really improves the taste!) + 1 pack. baking powder
  • 100g walnuts, chopped

Mix all liquid components, then add the flour mix, at the very and add the walnuts. Put inside a maximum sized loaf pan (it will be huge!) and bake 45 min at 180°C.

Stored cool and dry it will persist quite a while and can be taken e.g. on one-week bike rides (if the weather is sufficiently bad)…

Ride eternal, shiny and chrome!

I had a stormy day at Xterra in Zeulenroda. I barely finished, but I finished second (and also last), isn’t this great? Read the German version for details.
