Banana muffin bread thingys
I'm not sure if banana muffins are supposed to turn out as muffiny (crumbly and light) as other muffins. My first attempt has turned out very dense. Although they are very tasty, they feel more like mini banana breads.
Thing is, '2 large bananas' is subjective, isn't it? I have the feeling that our large were very large and my eggs were on the smaller size.
And CUPS! Don't get me started on that measurement. Okay, is it a cup of sifted or unsifted flour? And is it a cup of flour that you add, shake down, and then add more, or not?
Give me good old accurate metric any day. I know I know, I mentioned before I don't do accuracy with recipes anyway. But if I have an accurate measurement from which to work with first, then I can not use it. *grin*
Oh yeah, and although I added the baking powder, I didn't add the baking soda. Yeah, alright, that might have been why they didn't rise enough. It was right at the back of the cupboard, at the very top. I just figured it was too much bother. I had recently stumbed my toe you know.
Mmmmmm, good for breakfast this morning though...
