Last night I decided to make banana bread (from scratch, naturally) for the first time in my life.

So I got some overripe bananas, mashed them up, toasted some walnuts, etc., etc., and ended up with an appropriately curdled-looking batter, which I poured into two loaf pans and put in to bake, after which I busied myself with various other activities for the 55 minutes called for by the recipe.

Then I went to take the bread out and found I’d forgotten to turn the oven on.

The bread I eventually ended up with tasted delicious, but maybe next time I’ll skip the extra step.

    not as bad as the time my housemate and i tried to make nigella’s bagels, it wasn’t until after we’d left the dough to rise for an hour that we realised we hadn’t added any yeast.

    still the dough was delicious raw.

    I have the most amazing banana bread recipe on the planet and I’ll share it with you if you want it. It was my grandma’s recipe so it’s probably about 50 years old or something (…do you think that they had access to bananas in the Ottawa Valley in the 50’s? hmmm…). Anyway, let me know if you’d like the recipe, it is awesome!
