A First Experience

So have you ever made bread? I mean like, from scratch? Not cheating in the bread machine, but actually putting all the ingredients in a bowl, mixing it and baking it in the oven? I can now say that I have. Finally at the age of 25 I have now made bread from scratch. Banana Bread, for that matter!

My friend Jamie and I quadrupled the recipe the other night and made four loaves of bread! It was so fun, and easy too. Though I got the messy job of putting the bananas in and breaking them into little pieces as I did it. If you haven’t made banana bread before, just know that you use bananas at their ripest stage, a stage to where you would no longer eat them, but this is the perfect consistency for bread. I just went along with it, and before I knew it, Jamie had me in a ooey gooey mess of bananas! What a good friend…, no, I love her. She did offer to help, but I didn’t see the need for two of us to be messy!

So I came home that night with two loaves of homemade banana bread. Let me tell you, it tastes even better when you made it yourself! The hard part is not diving into it right after you take it out of the oven. You need to let it sit over night so it will set well. Now for two days I have gotten to enjoy homemade banana bread. Makes you want some doesn’t it?



  1. This was so very much fun. I cannot wait to hang and do it again. 🙂

  2. Me too…next time it is Spanglish sandwiches!

  3. Its so very hard for me to believe you’ve never made bread from scratch before. Let alone never making banana bread! You are crazy!!! I’m very glad Jamie is breaking you into a home life.

  4. Ya it is crazy that my best friend who went to culinary school never made banana bread from scratch before. I think you have to take some responsibility in that missy! LOL. I love ya.
