31  Re: ANOTHER Pin Cushion Swap Round 11 Gallery in The Swap Gallery by jloveg on: April 19, 2009 04:55:15 PM
OK I know am excited to show you and redsquareknot I am sorry  PLEASE  post the photos you take.
the DC shows she received.  but she hasn't been on so I am gonna show you what I sent to her.

I made the "birds"  and decided I did not like how they came out but here they are.

since I did not like them I make the "cube"  and wasn't happy. Here it is.

so then I had this brain idea.  (sorry it was brown I got too far ahead of myself)
anyway its the first time I have ever done something like this.  but I like how it came out I hope you do too.
It's a Gnome Home LOL you can't see him very well  but he's looking out the window.

33  Banana nut (amish/ friendship) bread in Recipes and Cooking Tips by jloveg on: April 09, 2009 09:39:14 PM

if you can get a starter from a  friend the recipe will be with it.
if not here's how you can start your own.
freeze2 bananas per batch you want to make.
in a medium sized bowl (DO NOT USE METAL) with a  lid or zip lock bag if you prefer. add 1 cup milk, 1 cup flour, 1 cup sugar. set on counter and do nothing.
the next day feed it again same as before.  do nothing for  a few (2-4 days)  but squeeze the bag and burp it if needed. If using a bowl just stir it up really well scraping the sides of the bowl.
you can add more if you want to do a large bake or not if you don't.
on the day you are ready to bake add another one cup, milk, one cup flour and one cup sugar and stir.

preheat oven to 325 degrees.
pull the 2 bananas from the freezer and lay tehm on the stove (it will thaw them just enough to make them easier to peel)
spray 2 loaf pans with cooking spray and sprinkle generously wit cinnamon and sugar.

In a medium sized bowl mix
1 cup oil
1 tsp vanilla
1/2 tsp salt
1 cup sugar
3 large eggs
2 cups flour
1/2 cup milk
1/2 tsp baking soda
1 tsp cinnamon
nuts if you would like

Peel the bananas with a knife and chop into slices (mash with a fork and add to the mix)
add 1 1/2 - 2 cups of the milk,flour, sugar mix.
Mix Well
add one Large box of instant banana pudding dry mix.
Mix well.  divide between the 2 loaf pans.

for a topping I grind nuts and sugar together adn sprinkle on top.
Bake for about an hour (I find it takes about 1- 1 1/2 hours)  the bread will spring back when touched if its done (or a knife will come out clean)

Oh and you are supposed to package one cup of the milk, sugar, flour mix in a baggy and give it to friends with the recipe. I freeze it in 1 1/2 cup incriments for me to use later.

enjoy!  really yummy with strawberry or blueberry cream cheese!
