Depending on your recipe, banana bread can be quite dense sometimes. This stuff is light and fluffy and ohsogood.

I made muffins with it (although I'm closer to calling them cupcakes) but I got the recipe after trying a loaf my mother had made.

1/2 c of shortening
1 c white sugar
creamed together, then add
2 eggs
1 tsp vanilla

Sift together
2 c of flour
2 tsp baking powder
1/4 tsp soda
1/2 tsp salt

Stir into butter, then add

2 tablespoons milk
1 cup mashed bananas

Nuts if you want to.

loaf pan - 45 mins to an hour @ 350 degrees
muffins (12) - 20 minutes

I have gingerbread cookies in the oven at the moment so that they're ready for Sunday (I'll be freezing them).

They smell really yummy.

I have four loads of laundry to fold, and two more on the go. Tomorrow my mother is bringing over suitcases so I can start packing for Vegas.

I don't have enough time. Ever. But it's exceptionally crunchish right now.

Curry for dinner tonight, I think. I have chicken thighs to use up.
