Posted for the World Tour 2005 event. The source of the adapted recipe is an article in Fine Cooking about cooking with ginger. The recipe for the article was contributed by Eva Katz who talked about the beautiful fresh ginger she enjoyed while living near Australia's ginger capital - Buderim, Queensland.
Very easy, quick and delicious creation of my husband's which works just as well on the grill as in the oven. It's really not dilapidated at all, he just thought it just had that flow-off-the-tongue sound. Plus he's really warped... like his lunatic wife.
Stock your pantry ahead of time to whip up this delicious satisfying soup. It comes together quickly for a nice meal. I got the recipe from Southern Living Magazine (Carol Michael Hewett, Texas). I made a few changes by adding celery, and adding 3 more cups of broth (because we don't like soup that thick). The original recipe called for 5 cups of water. I used part water and part chicken broth.
Only scale down to half at most. It is difficult to scale much farther down and still get the batter to come together. Made this in 2004 xmas and it tasted good, but wished I'd made more and just kept the leftover batter around.
Why compromise the banana flavor? My banana bread is moist and delicious with loads of banana flavor! Ultimate comfort food, and it's WONDERFUL TOASTED!! (Make sure to use bananas with a lot of black on them for the best flavor! The blacker the bananas, the stronger the banana flavor of the bread.)
Every Christmas my friends and family look forward to this in the cookie tins I make for all of them. They get very upset when I do not make this. It is so easy to make. However, you will want to give them away as soon as possible because they are very addicting.
