Testing the New Oven
Lord knows, we have enough Halloween candy that I have no reason to be baking, but the oven is new, the bananas were past ripe.
Not baking would have been wrong. Just wrong.
(My last batch of banana bread was too brown on the outside by the time it was baked in the middle. The new oven performs like a charm.)
And banana bread has bananas in it! So it's healthy! (I remember hearing a chef say that everyone was so afraid of fat that no one would eat pound cake, but if he grated carrots and put in raisins and nuts and some cinnamon and called it carrot cake, it flew off the menu.)
