Day 4 of the First Thirty-One over at Fourtuitous.com! Today’s challenge was “Something New”.
I’ve had a craving for banana bread lately. But my favourite recipe has wheat, and I have to ration out how much wheat I can tolerate in a week. I wouldn’t have a happy tummy with an entire loaf of delicious, wheaty banana bread (“just like mom used to make” – actually, it’s her recipe). So I modified it (and forgot an ingredient, but that’s besides the point).
I have some Bob’s Red Mill gluten free flour mix (I think it is chickpea and fava bean flour, tapioca and potato starch, and…hm, maybe one more thing). I made some scones with it a few weeks back that turned out so well that I fed them to my roommate’s father, and he didn’t know they weren’t wheat. It boded well, so I thought I’d try and alter my mom’s banana bread recipe to use it. And I did. 1:1. No dirty xantham gum, or anything.
And it was so good, I ate two slices, right away, hot with butter.
