Guess what? Mom made a wool penny candle mat and she said that's me on there. Yup, that's my stub tail! I'm surrounded by apples, my most favorite treat. For those of you who don't know, a macintosh is an apple and that's how Macintosh Mitch came to be.
She wondered if there might be a banana bread recipe out there that used oj. BINGO!
I got to lick the spoon!
Mash 1 1/2 bananas (about 2/3 cup) with 3/4 cup sugar. Add 1 1/2 Tablespoons vegetable oil and 1 egg. Then add 1/3 cup orange juice and mix well.
Add 1 1/2 cup flour, 3/4 teaspoon baking powder, 3/4 teaspoon baking soda, 1/4 teaspoon salt and a sprinkle or two of cinnamon.
The recipe called for 1/2 cup chopped walnuts but mom used 1/2 cup of chocolate chips instead.
Bake 325 degrees for about an hour in an 8 X 4" loaf pan.
I'll help you out in the kitchen anytime you say, mom!
So until next time............
Love ya lots,
