Bananas are strange things. I like them plain, in smoothies, in desserts (such as banana pudding or a fruit pizza :-)), but I can’t stand mashed up banana bits in muffins and breads. It gives the bread a strange and unusual consistency. 😦
However, I haven’t let that aversion stop me over the years. I kept putting banana bread and muffins on my menu plans, hoping it would turn out delicious. (After all banana bread just sounds so yummy!!!) Every time I ate a bite though I knew that nothing had changed. I still didn’t like it.
One day I decided to try my hand once again at making delicious tasting banana muffins, only I tried putting all of the wet ingredients (including the bananas!) into the blender.
Everything gets mixed up and the banana is…well…I guess you could call it finely mashed. 😉 And this technique was a success!! No more banana bits in my muffins. I can now truly enjoy the wonderful banana-y taste in bread without the strange texture that mashed bananas give it. 🙂
Yes…I’m pretty happy with my success. 🙂
That’s what works for me.
