bread baking good times

Today I did not plan on baking. I had planned to bake brownies tomorrow. But then I stumbled across a bread recipe. And it included maple syrup. And bananas. Both of which I happened to have handy. I couldn't not bake this bread. So, here it is.

Maple Banana Bread (adapted from here)
1 1/3 cup all-purpose flour
1 t baking soda
1/2 t baking powder
pinch of salt
1 stick butter, melted
2/3 cup maple syrup, room temperature
2 eggs, room temperature
3 mashed bananas
3 T milk (or if your like me and don't have milk because you're lactose intolerant, soy milk)

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Combine flour, baking soda, baking powder and salt in a bowl. In another bowl, combine melted butter and maple syrup until well-combined. Add in eggs, one at a time, beating well after each addition. Add in bananas and then milk. Pour wet mixture into dry ingredients and fold in. Don't over-mix! It should still be a little lumpy.
Pour into greased loaf pan. You can add a topping if you so choose. I added brown sugar, cinnamon sugar and some slow-cooking oats.
Bake for 35-40 minutes or until top begins to split and the sides begin to pull away from the pan. Whatever you do, don't overcook it. You'll deeply regret it.
perfection. and wet hair.
I have quite the busy weekend planned, from 90s night tonight to a Pure Barre class tomorrow morning to Easter dinner Sunday. Busy bee.

I hope you all have a fantastic weekend, and a wonderful holiday (if you celebrate). I will be stuffing my face with Peeps for the majority of it. Here's to hoping I don't gain 20 pounds over the weekend...
