That's beautiful. I'm amazed by the lift you're getting on a 50 percent wholewheat boule.

Generally speaking, I don't eat bananas and apparently, neither do the people in my house who continue to request them from the grocery store. But I just can't let anything go to waste, so I used 6 of the 9 rotting bananas on the counter to make a double-batch of banana bread, riffing on a recipe in Joy of Cooking. One was a plain-Jane version, the other had chocolate chips and roasted pecans . . .

Well, bananas are only edible for about a day and a half. Before that, they are too green (too tart, or something), and after that, they are too ripe (make me gag trying to eat them). Kinda why I pretty much stopped buying them, unless I plan on making banana bread (which I do like). So, I understand your family's dilemma.

Nah, I think it was a set-up. They requested the bananas with zero intention of ever eating them. Knowing that I am completely incapable of throwing anything away, they correctly figured their scheme would lead to banana bread, which it did. I stepped right into it, too! :lol:

Hopefully your family chooses to use their superior manipulative skills on the side of good instead of evil. If not we are all in trouble. :D

Here’s a celebration of fruit by a snickerdoodle angel food cake, filled with peaches and cream, topped with fresh berries and coulis. Love summertime!
