In true Cooking with Amy fashion, this was a project.
On Monday: I was ready to bake bread but I had no baking soda. (I have a mental block when it comes to baking soda/powder. I always assume that baking soda is in the red, soda-shaped can. It's not. It's in the yellow, put-it-in-your-fridge box. So I did in fact have baking soda but I did not realize this until today.)
On Tuesday: I went to the grocery store to get baking soda. (See above) So now I own baking soda AND baking powder. I was ready to bake bread but I had no eggs.
On Wednesday: I went to the grocery store to get eggs. I bought 12 but I only needed 1. I was ready to bake bread and I did!
I mixed. (This kind of looks like M's food.)
And I totally looked the part.*
Banana bread baking post-mortem:
-Making the mess > cleaning up the mess.
-Muffins cook so much faster than loaves.
-The muffins cooked a bit too long.
-The muffins don't taste like much. I think they needed about 3 more bananas.
-Foil cupcake wrappers > paper cupcake wrappers. They come off clean and add a bit of pizazz. They are however, a no-no when it comes to reheating in the microwave.
Despite the fact that I envisioned yeast and rising when I put #13 on The List, I am totally counting my banana bread muffins as 1/13.
*The apron was from the BFF to aid in future cooking endeavors. The only problem is it is too pretty to wipe goopey banana covered fingers on. Incidentally, I also have this problem with using new crayons.
