So I took another trip in the way back machine yesterday. This time I was in Sam's blog, Diary of a Mad Fabri-holic, way back in October 2005. First let me say that I thought her old posts just rolled off & died - her blog only shows the last 12 months, you have to "look for" anything older...
I was looking for her pumpkin cookies recipe.
(I am SOOOOOOO ready for Fall! Maybe some pumpkin cooking will force it to come and stay for a while.)
It is very good, but in reality on Thursday after work, I do not need that many ingredients... & I recently bought a bag of "old" bananas - so I found this recipe & decided to give it a go.
Banana Bread Pie
2 very ripe bananas
1/2 cup biscuit mix (like Bisquick)
2 large eggs
1 can (14 oz.) sweetened condensed milk
1 Tbsp. butter; melted
1 tsp vanilla
Place bananas in a large mixing bowl and mash with an electric mixer until smooth. Add the rest of the ingredients and mix until well blended. Pour the mixture into a 9 in pie place and bake at 400 for 25-30 minutes. The pie should be caramelized on the edges but still a little soft in the center.
Just what the doctor ordered... simple & good & warm.
So what about that blog title...
Lets just say that 14 oz. of canned sweetened condensed milk is a goal, not a requirement. You can get away with say 13 oz. just fine...
You see, I opened the can, but that last little bit did not come apart from the can... So I am trying to pry it off with out cutting myself or getting the bit on the lid on the counter... so I start rocking it back & forth - not paying attention to the fact that the can contains a liquid.... I spilled some from the can onto the counter & my hand & the floor, by the time it was all said & done. So I dumped into the mixer before losing any more of it... Yes, that is when the lid came off into the mixer....
Every thing else worked out just fine - I spilled some of the Bisquick - but that was expected...
Enjoy the pie, I did!
Oh and on a quilty note, I had EVERY intention of honoring my own pledge to Take a Stitch Thursday, but I failed miserably... Hopefully I find my groove again real soon. (I bought a lot of batting this week...)
