I just wanted to introduce myself. I too used to subscribe to this
site many years ago and we had a very active discussion group and
lots of recipes. I moved to Ireland and lived in a area where it was
hard to receive anything via a modem/computer. Now I'm back in
Sacramento, CA so I thought I'd join up again.
Maybe we can liven the site up by communicating fat-free information
Here is a nice recipe for Banana Bread
Not heavy at all...
Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Use a non-stick or spray an 8"x8" cake
pan. Or 11 muffins in my tins at least.
Mix the dry ingredients together in a bowl:
2 cups flour
1/4 cup sugar or to taste
1 Tbs. baking powder
3/4 tsp. baking soda
Mix the liquid ingredients together separately:
3/4 cup hot water
1 Tbs. + 1 tsp. vinegar
4 very ripe bananas, well mashed
Combine the liquid with the dry ingredients. Mix well, be careful not
over mix. Pour into prepared pan. Bake 25 to 30 minutes. Insert a
toothpick to test for doneness. Cool 10 minutes then remove from pan.
Cool completely on rack these are best eaten the next day.
Cocoa-ginger muffins or bread
Use only 2 bananas
add 1/3 cup cocoa (or more)
2 teaspoons ground ginger (or to taste, I like ginger)
