As someone who enjoys kitchen-stuff (y’know, cooking, baking, dirtying dishes, etc.), sometimes I wanna pull out all the stops; make something new, rock the exotic ingredients, use every last pan, dish and cooking gadget in my kitchen until it resembles a scene from the movie, Twister. It’s cathartic, dude.
Other times though, I can’t be bothered. Sometimes I just wanna make stuff I know; easy stuff that tastes good because it, well, tastes good. You can’t go all Iron Chef every day y’know.
This is something I’ve been making forever. It’s one of those easy-peasy one-two-threesy kinda recipes.
This looks like mush now, but just you wait!
2 cups Unbleached aLL purpose flour
3/4 teaspoon baking soda
1/4 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon cinnamon
2 extra-ripe medium bananas
1 cup granulated sugar
1/4 Cup ground flax seed mixed with 6 TBS of warm Water
1/2 cup canola oil
1 1/2 tsp vanilla extract
8 oz can crushed pineapple, drained
1/2 cup toasted chopped walnuts
Preheat your oven to 350 degrees.
Sift all your dry stuff. Mash your bananas with a fork. Mix the rest of your wet stuff with the bananas until combined. (don’t over mix). Fold in your walnuts.
Pour your mixture into greased 9X13 non-stick metal pan.
Bake for 30 minutes or until inserted toothpick comes out clean.
Allow to cool in pan, then cut into squares. Then, y’know – eat them.
