Banana Bread

Bear and I finally got around to testing our flour recipe. It was wonderful. We made pizza and banana bread. The banana bread had the texture of moist corn bread and was absolutely delicious. It did not have the slightly metallic taste of other gluten free breads. This is defiantly a repeat. The pizza was a pleasant surprise. The crust has a slightly crumbly feel but held together like brick oven pizza crust. It even had a slight brick oven taste. It was not 'bready', to thin, or even soggy like other gluten free pizzas. Bear and I can't wait to make more flour. We even found a stone flour mill for $27. More on that when we get one. I'm only listing our Banana bread recipe but I posted a picture of the pizza so you could see it's crust (the peperoni is 98% fat free turkey, I think it makes up for the over abundance of cheese). Enjoy!

Mom's Banana Bread Recipe:
3/4 cup of butter
1 1/2 cup of sugar
4 eggs
3 cups of flour
4 Bananas
1 1/2 Tsp of salt (we use sea salt)
1 1/2 Tsp Baking soda
1 1/2 Tsp Vanilla extract

In this order:
Cream butter and sugar. Beat in eggs. Add flour, salt and soda. Add Banana's and vanilla. Bake 325-350 for 60-70 minutes
