    Rarotonga-Beach Days with the Family and Banana Bread from the Bananas growing in the Carport

    We have our own bunch of Bananas. Between us and the chicken we have managed to use them
    Great for Breakfast, Cocktails
    And I decided to trial some Banana Bread. It made great toast.
    This bread is really easy
    Just make up some of my Basic Bread dough
    I used 3 cups of flour
    1 tsp salt
    2 pkts yeast (16gms)
    1 tablespoon olive oil
    1 tsp sugar
    Approx 300 mls of hand hot water

    Click here for the method

    To make the Banana Bread
    After the first rising
    Take 350 gms of the dough
    (I used the rest to make bread rolls)
    Put on top
    1 ripe banana mixed with 10 gms sugar
    40 gms of nutty muesli

    Fold over and knead for about 5 minutes
    It will take about that amount of time to mix all the ingredients in
    Leave it to rise again till double in size
    Shape and put into greased loaf tin
    Leave to rise again and then dust with flour and slash top
    Bake in 200C oven.
    It should take about 25 minutes
    So off to the No-ever Beach
    You don't normally see Dale sitting like this
    This is the normal view.
    Just love all those shades of Turquoise

    So gorgeous here in Rarotonga
