I know how to spell “banana”, but I don’t know when to stop

For Freida:

Bestest Bee-gan Bananana[1] Bread Ever

When served with icing, will transubstantiate into Bananana Cake. (Transubstantiation may require the presence of a Catholic vegan.)

  • 6 bananas, black and ripe
  • 1 cup sugar or equivalent sweetener
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • 2 cups flour
  • 1 tsp baking powder
  • 1 tsp baking soda

Mash bananas; add sugar & vanilla. Mix dry ingredients, stir into wet, then bake in greased pan at 350°F for about an hour. (It’s also nice with some cinnamon, nutmeg, pumpkin seeds, or whatnot.) For icing, melt some good bulk chocolate (like Callebaut), then stir in a purée of silken tofu, sugar, and a little soymilk. This ganache should harden in about half an hour to the consistency of a truffle filling. (Thanks to Shannon for showing me how to make this icing, and teaching me the word “ganache”.)

…that was fun. I hope more people ask me for recipes here. Enjoy!
