But at 1:30 in the afternoon, walking home in the hot Argentine sun leaves my feet a little sore and my stomach a little rumbly. As much as I love cooking, thinking about cooking, reading about cooking, and shopping so I can cook, this is one of those times when I am not in a super 3-course meal kind of mood.
Banana bread is super fast, and it doesn´t take so much watching that I cant run off for a quick shower while it is in the oven.
After School Banana Bread1/2 cup azucar negra
1/2 cup white sugar
(or just one cup of brown sugar will work for those not living in South America)
4 tablespoons of butter
3 large bananas, or 5 small ones (quite often the bananas here come finger sized)
1 1/2 cups of all purpose flour
1 teaspoon salt
1 1/2 teaspoons baking powder
Preheat the oven to 325. Cream together the butter and sugar, then mash in the bananas, I like to use a potato masher. Add the egg, then mix the dry ingredients together and then add them to the wet. Cook for about 55 minutes until golden brown and a knife inserted comes out clean.
