Lots of flavors come together to make a yummy and different quick bread or muffin.
Update--I obviously committed a big oops! So sorry, the temp I cook this at (and truly thought I had posted) is 350°F. I am so sorry to have omitted that important fact and hope it didn't ruin the outcome of anyone's bread.
I am posting this in response for a request on the boards for a recipe to use up some mangoes. I made this yesterday, but the original recipe had way too much sugar, so I've adjusted the recipe to the way I will make it in the future.
This is a really easy recipe for mango bread, from A Taste of Hawaii Cookbook. The toughest thing about this recipe is cutting up the mangoes. Great mango flavor! I love the crunch of the macadamia nuts and walnuts. Enjoy!
This is delicious as a dessert served with ice cream (coconut or mango ;-) or as a deliciously sweet bread for breakfast with coffee, as a side with a salad for lunch. Or go completely wild and have it with a hot rum tody for tea time! It is a blast of the tropics worth going out in the mid-day sun for!
I am a lemon fanatic! These exquisite lemony muffins make for a wonderful picnic or sack lunch treat. Meyer lemons are a cross between a true lemon and a mandarin or sweet orange. Recipe is from the L. A. Times.
I searched and searched for a banana bread recipe with the texture that I wanted and couldn't find one. One day I decided to modify my Recipe #14187 to see if I could make up my own recipe. My family loved it and it was exactly what I was looking for so here it is. I hope you like it as much as we do.
Warm, sweet, hearty banana bread. Simple to make, wonderful to eat. My brother's recipe.
1) Make sure that the bananas are slightly over-ripe. Just leave them out for about 4-5 days after buying them from the store.
2) After you've added all the dry ingredients to the mixing bowl, make a small "crater" in the mix before adding the liquid ingredients and banana slices; this makes mixing a little easier.
From "South of the Sahara: Traditional Cooking from the Lands of West Africa" by Elizabeth A. Jackson. This lovely quickbread recipe can easily be doubled. Note: a large fresh papaya will yield about two cups of puree; make sure your papaya is ripe. Also note: papaya is called paw paw in West Africa--and is not related to the North American pawpaw.
From Metropolitan Cookbook 1964...I love old cookbooks! I love the combination of peanut butter and bananas in this quick bread. (Edited to adjust the baking times to 35-45 minutes and not the original 1 hour. My oven it takes almost a complete 45 minutes where reviewers are baked in 35 minutes. Just check after 35 minutes so it does not get overbaked!)
This is a quick bread made with cornmeal, adapted from a Williams-Sonoma holiday cookbook. They suggested serving it as a bread with your holiday meal, but we've always liked it for breakfast during the holiday season. Eat plain, or toast individual slices in your toaster oven (it's too crumbly for a regular toaster) and top with butter and orange marmalade. Yum! Because of the cornmeal, the bread has a bit of a crunch to it when toasted.
