I love baking, but seem to find little time for it lately. Luckily I had an excuse to bake - a visit from a quilty friend! This particular friend has a gluten sensitivity so I was challenged to come up with a gluten free recipe (hey, that rhymes!). Since I like quick breads, I decided to make banana bread.
I found the recipe for The Best Ever Super Moist Gluten Free Banana Bread (boy, that's a mouthful) at www.gimmedelicious.com. It was definitely moist! It was also quick dense and heavy and made a very large loaf. The recipe called for chocolate chips, but as I'm foregoing chocolate for a few more weeks, I omitted these.
This is the first time I've made a gluten free recipe and I found the texture different than what I was used to - not bad, just different. It also took much longer to cook than the recipe suggested. The banana bread was very tasty and my friend gave it a thumbs up.
If you're a whiz at gluten free baking, share your favourite recipe with me in the comments below. I'd love to have more recipes in my repertoire for upcoming visits.
Oh, and we did find time to do some talk about quilting and my new Handi Quilter Infinity 26. More about what I've been creating on it in an upcoming post.
