As soon as I found this recipe and noticed the softening bananas on our counter, I decided to give it a try.
Armed with the variety of ingredients I would need (including the butter which cost me eight dollars) I began the process.
I mashed the bananas, added and mixed the appropriate flours, powders and sugars, and spooned the batter into....my rice cooker.
Fifteen minutes later the rice cooker popped up, announcing its first cycle was complete. I peered in and observed that the batter had risen, but it didn't look anywhere near done. The second cycle returned the same result.
After about THREE MORE HOURS it still wasn't done baking, but did resemble and smell like, a baked good. I took this as a good sign. I left the rice cooker on warm overnight and in the morning, I had banana bread!
I thought it was delicious. :) Ryan may or may not agree with me.
Maybe I should add this book to my wish list... or at least get a toaster oven on there.
