Happy Monday! It's a cold dreary day here, a perfect day to heat up the oven and get some baking done!
This a very basic mix, but it had a lot of potential!
- White (granulate) sugar
- Brown sugar
- Baking soda
- Baking powder
combine it all in a large bowl--this makes about 10 cups of mix
Mix it together good to get all the lumps out. We all know how brown sugar loves to clump together.
Store the mix in a sealable container, and mark it with what it is, and when it needs to be used by (within 6 months for this one)
Sweet Bread Mix
Recipe courtesy: recipesofacheapskate.blogspot.com
- 6 cups flour
- 1 Tbsp baking powder
- 1 Tbsp baking soda
- 1/2 Tbsp salt
- 1 1/2 cups granulated sugar
- 1 1/2 cups brown sugar--packed
Now, let's make some banana bread with this. I was sorting through my freezer the other day, and found a few bags of bananas that I froze to use for bread sometime. And then I promptly forget about them as soon as I closed to freezer door.
- Sweet bread mix
- lemon juice
See? that perfect, sticky bread mixture.
Grease your bread pan up good, and dump the mixture into it.
You'll need to cook it for a while, and make sure to test it for doneness. . . .I always have a hard time making sure the bread is done. . .this was a little underdone, and it cooked for over an hour!
- 3 1/2 cups sweet bread mix
- 2 eggs
- 1/3 cup oil
- 1 Tbsp lemon juice
- 2 bananas, mashed (about 1 cup)
- optional: 1/2 cup chopped nuts
Yum, it's great toasted with some butter on top! that's my favorite way to eat it.
