I take that back.

I have not figured out how to use Movable Type category tags, at least not without screwing up all of my other page links. Alas. Alack (of proper HTML knowledge). Anyone who'd like to advise me is welcome to do so.

Banana Bread

1 3/4 cup unbleached white flour
1 1/2 cup sugar
1 tsp baking soda
1/2 tsp salt
1 tbsp Ener-G egg replacer (just the powder!)
1 cup mashed bananas
1/2 cup vegetable oil
1/2 cup soymilk
1/2 tbsp vinegar
(1 cup chopped walnuts)

Mix dry ingredients in a large bowl, wet ingredients in a separate medium bowl, then pour wet ingredients into dry and stir well. Add walnuts if desired (almonds, pecans, and Brazil nuts also work well, as do chocolate chips).

Pour into a greased 9x5 loaf pan, small casserole dish, or muffin tray. Whatever container you use, the batter shouldn't sit more than 1 1/2 inches high or you'll have a hard time getting the center to bake fully. Bake at 325 Fahrenheit for 75 minutes for a loaf or 25-30 minutes for muffins. Snarf.

Thanks, Dianna! I actually made the recipe a few times in Berkeley, but I left the recipe there in the library. I was reminded of it by my slightly-mushy bananas. I believe I'll make it tonight, before my bananas get too mushy.

Also: Yay! Your links all seem to work now!

If your bananas are getting too mushy, peel them and throw them in the freezer. They can stay there for months, nay, years if need be, and when you take them out and thaw them they will mash so easily you wouldn't believe it. Just a tip.

Yeah, evidently I fixed something when I wasn't looking. So says the mighty webhost.
