The Banana Bread Puzzle
Ok folks this is probably a real simple puzzle for you. Today I made two loaves of banana bread based on RL Barenbaum's bread bible. Basically the recipe is the basic white loaf plus a cup of milk and 2 ripe bananas. So the loaves are fine but there is no taste of banana in them. Please note that this is banana bread and not banana cake as Floyd has shared with us with baking powder and baking soda. The recipe I used was just regular white bread with AP and the ingredients of bananas and milk added. My wife, who has taste buds to die for, has tasted it as well as confirms my evaluation that there is no taste of banana. Am I doing something wrong or is that life and there is no such thing as banana bread but rather just banana cake? Since I am a novice I have a tendency to believe what is written in the bread books. Maybe it is a joke? Whatever...thanks, cb.
