We don't have an oven in Palembang so I have been looking forward to trying out a few recipes that call for an oven here in Brisbane. Yes, I've been here nearly 4 weeks but its only now that I got the first one out. (We've had something to do EVERY. SINGLE. DAY!)
Anyway, I had the afternoon free and just wanted to dive straight into things - Banana Bread. I needed 1.5 cups of banana puree but only had enough bananas for 1 cup. Never mind. I'll just cut all the other ingredients out by a third.
No major issues with the big measurements.
Then I needed just 2/3 of the required 1/4 teaspoon of baking powder. Do we have measuring spoons here? Of course not! this could be where my problems started.
And, how do I get 2/3 of 2 eggs yolks? I didn't, I just put two in.
Mix them all up and put it in a muffin tray since we don't have any bread tins here.
Finally, I felt so proud of myself when I finally put it in the oven. The self satisfaction must have been my downfall. I think apart from the questionable measurements, its because I didn't reduce the baking time that caused this to happen:
I'm sure they would have broken the kitchen windows if I threw them that way. Fortunately, there was a tiny bit in the middle of each of those rocks that was edible and Aaron liked it. I was making them for him anyway.
Oh well, I'll try again another day. Or maybe I'll move on to the Blueberry and Lemon Muffins. At least we have a muffin tray.
