Then a friend came over for tea, and I put a pot on the stove to make us some delicious Chai tea. Unfortunately I put the wrong burner on, and there was a glass baking dish filled with buns that I had made yesterday sitting on that burner. KABOOM! Glass everywhere. And by everywhere, I mean we'll be finding glass for weeks to come, even after I spent an hour cleaning my kitchen. The glass even scorched parts of my linoleum when it landed. Thank God no one was hurt, and thank God I had moved the banana loaf to a part of the kitchen that somehow managed to avoid the shower of glass shards.
Anyway, back to my banana bread. I used a recipe from Canadian Living and added Skor Bits instead of chocolate chips (because I have overdosed on chocolate since Halloween!) Here is the final version:
BANANA BREAD WITH SKOR BITS
2 c. flour
1/4 c. sugar
2 tsp. baking powder
1 tsp. baking soda
pinch of salt
1/2 c. Skor Bits
2 c. ripe bananas, mashed (I used 6 bananas)
1/2 c. butter, melted
1/4 c. milk
Sift all the dry ingredients together (including Skor Bits). Combine the wet ingredients and pour into the dry ingredients, stirring just until blended. Pour into a greased loaf pan and bake at 350 F for 50-60 minutes.
This turned out perfectly, and it was delicious. I like that this recipe doesn't use much sugar, and by using 1/2 c. Skor Bits instead of 1 c. chocolate chips, it really cut down on the sweetness without being bland. I will definitely use this recipe from now on, and I will always make sure I turn on the correct burner when making tea.
