Baking soda challenge??? I am in!
But of course, through goodies from my kitchen :-D
If you are looking banana bread that is more to bread in texture instead tea-cake or quick bread, give my banana cherry bread a try! It is so good and toast-able! My two little sons love it big time :)
Step 1: Homemade Vegan Buttermilk
This bread is using buttermilk, and as this is a vegan bread, I have not seen commercial vegan buttermilk yet, but it is do-able to make yourself.
As easy as to make dairy buttermilk, obviously!
All you have to do is, in a bowl, mix the following
- 1/3 c almond milk
- 2 tbsp lemon juice
Step 2: Dry Ingredients
Now let's prepare some dry and wet ingredients before we start baking :)
In a separate bowl, mix:
- 2 c flour
- 2 tbsp flour
- 3/4 tsp each BPowder and BSoda
- A pinch of salt
Step 3: Wet Ingredients
In a separate bowl, mash and mix:
- 3 large ripe banana
- 1/4 c maple syrup
Pour in buttermilk and mix well
Step 4: Let's Bake the Bread!
Now that you got your buttermilk, dry and wet ingredients, we are good to go :D
- Pour wet mixture into dry ingredients, and stir to just combined
- Stir in about 20 defrosted frozen sweet dark black cherries, store-bought
- Bake in preheated 350 F for an H
- Cool on rack
NOTE: please make sure it's totally cooled to room temperature before wrapping the bread)
Easy peasy :D Enjoy!
