Toasty & Tasty Banana Bread- Grilled Version!
Culinary Confession- I don't own a toaster.
When I want something toasty, I either have to fire up my oven, or use my new personal fav- the grill. However, the temperature hasn't risen about 36 degrees this week so I used my indoor grill/press. Works wonders and gets those perfect little grill marks.
Banana Bread Ingredients:
3 bananas, rough chopped
1/3 cup butter (melted)
1/2 Cup of Sugar
1 tsp organic vanilla extract
1 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 tsp cinnamon
Pinch of salt
dash of nutmeg or allspice (optional holiday twist)
1 1/2 cups of all-purpose flour
Preheat Oven to 350. Rub a loaf pan with some butter, especially in the corners so the bread won't stick
In a large mixing bowl, combine all dry ingredients, whisk to combine. Make a well in the center of the dry ingredients and add all the wet ingredients except butter.
Mix to combine ingredients, slowly drizzling in the melted butter. Don't add the warm butter all at once, as you might cook the egg. Batter should be fluid but rather thick.
Pour batter into prepared loaf pan, and put into center rack of preheated oven. Cook for 45min-1hr
Let cool. Slice. And grill portions as needed. Great served with honey butter, or a scoop of ice cream for dessert! Bon Appetit!
