and still going strong. There’s been a few days here and there that I’ve not taken a photograph on that particular day, but on whole, I’m managing quite fine!
fandangocool's Life List
1. Take a photograph every day for a year
2. Get back to Target Weight
3. Finish the Portfolio
4. To find the perfect banana bread recipe
5. To try out recipes from the cookbooks I own, rather than buy new ones.
6. Organise my photographs
7. Make a new friend
8. To run 5K in under 30 minutes
On the 8th June 2012, it was exactly 3 years since I lost over 50 pounds. I’m now 13 pounds away from target. Not quite back where I should be but at least I’ve shifted the weight from holidays and christmas last year!
So far this is the clear winner from Kitchenconfidante:
1 cup buttermilk (or substitute 1 cup milk with juice of one lemon)
3 cups flour
½ tsp salt
1½ tsp baking powder
1½ tsp baking soda
½ cup chopped pecans (optional)
2 cups sugar
½ cup unsalted butter
5 – 6 very ripe bananas
Preheat oven to 300 degrees. Prepare two loaf pans by buttering and lining with parchment paper.
Sift or whisk flour, salt, baking powder and baking soda. Add pecans if using, then set aside. In a separate bowl, cream sugar and butter. Mix in eggs, one at a time, then add the bananas. Add dry ingredients and buttermilk, alternating until incorporated. Try to end with the dry ingredient addition, and be sure not to over mix.
Bake in buttered loaf pans for one hour or until toothpick comes out clean.
There are still so many more to try…...
