Moist Old Fashioned Banana Bread


Banana sour cream bread recipe

Jason Hill of Chef Tips shows you how to make a moist banana bread recipe that is sure to please your entire family!

This easy banana bread recipe makes a very moist banana bread.

You can turn it into a banana nut bread recipe by simply adding about a cup of gourmet black walnuts, which make the tastiest addition over traditional walnuts.

This recipe came from a bed and breakfast in the California mountains, and the secret to its moistness comes from sour cream!

It’s an old fashioned banana bread that you can easily picture coming from your grandma’s kitchen.

Your friends will beg you for this recipe for banana bread.

Enjoy, and we hope you enjoy our easy recipes! Thanks for Tubing In

Ingredients:
Four large ripe bananas (or six small)
2 cups all purpose flour
1 tsp baking soda
1/2 tsp baking powder
1/2 cup butter
1 1/2 cups sugar
1/2 tsp salt
2 eggs
1 tsp vanilla
4 tablespoons sour cream

Mix dry ingredients together and sift. In a mixing bowl, cream softened butter with the sugar and salt. Mix in eggs, vanilla and sour cream. Mix until just blended.

Add flour mix to the batter. When making banana bread, use ripe soft bananas. Mash into bowl and add into mixture.

Spray a Bundt pan with cooking spray or grease with fresh butter. Pour batter into pan. Bake in preheated 350 F for 1 hour. If a toothpick comes out clean, its done.

Sour cream is the secret ingredient to this banana breads moist texture.

My wife and I have tried several banana bread recipes through the years and this is definitely our favorite. Give it a try. Youll be glad you did!

Not really into Old Fashioned Banana Bread? Try Bakery Style Banana Bread!
OMG I am sooo loving Fall right now!! I’ve been in a baking frenzy since it began and yesterday I woke up in the mood for some good ol banana bread. This is one of my favorite recipes for banana bread because it tastes exactly like the old school banana bread that my great grandmother use to make; super moist (without being soggy) on the inside, tons of banana flavor with that hint of cinnamon and vanilla and gorgeously golden on the outside. Other added bonuses: It’s very easy, stays incredibly moist for days, freezes well and that banana bread aroma that fills your home…priceless!
This banana bread never last long in my house, matter of fact…I made this yesterday and my husband finished up the last slice for breakfast this morning. I didn’t even get a chance to eat it with cool whip like I normally do. Ah well I’ve got10 bananas getting super black on my counter so hopefully this weekend I’ll be baking up some batches for myself and to give to others. (because I’ll never hear the end of it if my peeps found out I made this bread without sending some their way)
SOUR CREAM! Note* If you plan on making this bread and freezing it, add in a 1/2 c. of sour cream.
Ingredients (Makes 1 loaf)
1/2 c. butter, softened (1 stick)
2/3 c. brown sugar
2 eggs (beaten)
4-5 extremely ripe bananas (the blacker the better)
1/2 t. salt
1 t. baking soda
1 t. cinnamon
1/2 c. walnuts (optional)
1/2. c sour cream (optional if freezing)
Preheat oven to 350
Step 1. ) In a large bowl, cream together 1 stick of soften butter & 2/3 c. brown sugar.

Step 2.) Stir in 2 beaten eggs and 1 t. vanilla. (If adding sour cream, fold in after adding the vanilla)

Step 3.) Mash up 4-5 very ripe bananas with a fork or potato masher and add them to the mixture. Set aside.

Step 4.) In a separate bowl, add 1-3/4 c. of flour, 1/2 t. salt, 1 t. baking soda, 2 t. baking powder, & 1 t. cinnamon.

Step 5.) Give it a good whisk and then add in walnuts if desired. I used black walnuts just because they taste soooo good with bananas.

Step 6.) Slowly add the flour mixture to the banana mixture (half the bowl at a time). Gently stir JUST UNTIL COMBINED.

NOTE* PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE DO NOT OVER STIR! Or you’ll have a super densed, dry banana bread on your hands. I learned this the hard way. I have a habit of going overboard with stirring things. Banana bread only needs to be stirred just until the flour mixture is mixed in good. Once that is done JUST PUT THE SPOON DOWN AND RESIST THE URGE…I know it’s hard.

Step 7.) Pour the mixture into a greased and flour loaf pan and let it sit for about 10-15 minutes before placing into the oven. I don’t know what this does, just something I see my grandmother do all the time.

Step 8.) Place into the oven and cook for 60 minutes or until a toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean. 1 hour always works for me. When done, remove from oven & butter the top. Let sit in the pan for about 20 minutes before removing it to cool completely.

My grandmother says you shouldn’t cut banana bread (or any kind of bread) until it has completely cooled off because the steam inside the loaf keeps it moist. (don’t know if that’s true or not) and I don’t have the balls to question her when it comes to cooking.

ENJOY!!!!

How to Make Crepes – Even the Messed-Up Ones Will Be Perfect!

How to Make Crepes – Even the Messed-Up Ones Will Be Perfect!

With a blog name like Food Wishes, and a closing video credit that asks, “what is your food wish?” – I do get lots of requests for video recipes. Probably the most common request that I hadn’t done yet was for a “how to make crepes” video. Well, today is the day. 

I’ve never understood the fear and mystery that surrounds this thin round of ground flour, milk, and egg. It’s one of the first things you make in culinary school (that works), and probably the first French recipe one commits to memory. It does take a few practice crepes to get a feel for the pan and heat, but once you have a couple successfully finished, you are set for life.

By the way, forget those scenes in movies, and TV, where the “chef” is flipping them in the air to turn them. This is all for show. Just use a spatula and turn them over – sort of like a toasted cheese sandwich. Also, stop being a perfectionist in the kitchen; you’ll have more fun. I know you; if you try these you want them to be perfectly round, perfectly thin, and perfectly colored. Relax, Martha.

Perfect rarely happens in the kitchen – before the food is plated, at least. The most imperfectly shaped crepe once folded up with jam, fried in butter, and eaten with ice cream, is always perfect. As I say in the video, this is just the first step. I will do another demo on what to do with these perfect crepes soon. Stay tuned, and enjoy!

Ingredients:
1 cup flour
2 eggs
1 1/4 cup milk
2 tbsp oil
1/4 tsp salt

French Toast – The Fancy Brunch Restaurant Style Foodwishes Cooking Recipe


Pumpkin pain perdu or "lost bread" a...

French Toast – The Fancy Brunch Restaurant Style

So, you think you know how to make French toast? Maybe you beat a couple eggs, a splash of milk, a quick dip, fry it up in some butter, drizzle with a little syrup? Sounds pretty good, and for 95% of the world that is what they consider “French Toast.” But, if you want truly amazing French toast, give this classic restaurant method a try. 

The main difference is the bread is sliced thicker, it’s soaked in a custard batter (really, really soaked), and then after being brown slightly in a pan, it’s baked. That is the real secret. The baking cooks the custard inside the bread and gives it an unbelievable texture. The outside is crisp and golden, and the contrast between the two is magical. The problem with just pan-frying is by the time the inside is really cooked, the outside is too dark and bitter. You can use thinner bread, of course, but then you don’t get the same creamy, custardy, almost bread pudding-like texture, as from the thicker slices. Give this a try. The one extra step of baking it is sooo worth it. When you bite into this, I’m sure you’ll agree. Enjoy!

Ingredients:
6 thick slice of French bread
2 eggs
1/2 cup milk
pinch of salt
1 tsp vanilla
1/2 tsp cinnamon
1/4 tsp allspice
butter for frying
maple syrup?

It Takes Some Huevos to Cook on a Ranch Food Wishes Cooking Recipe


Huevos Rancheros

Image via Wikipedia

Bored with breakfast? Huevos rancheros, or ranch-style eggs, is a hearty, healthy, and very delicious breakfast. Watch how easy it is to make a fresh ranchero sauce, the key ingredient in this classic Mexican meal.

 

It Takes Some Huevos to Cook on a Ranch

I was very excited when I saw Huevos Rancheros on my assignment list for About.com. It’s one of those breakfast recipes that I love, but never remember to make.

Huevos Rancheros simplemeans ranch-style eggs, and if you’ve ever worked on a ranch, like I have (I picked corn one summer), you understand the importance of a hearty breakfast.

There are many variations of this dish, all which includes some kind of eggs topped with some kind of tomato and chili-based sauce. This video recipe shows a fairly traditional preparation with two slight twists. I like my ranchero sauce kind of smooth – where as most classic versions are quite chunky. Also, instead of the plain tortilla base, I slip in a slice of cheese for a little quesadilla action.

If you decide to go ahead and try this (and when you see the money shot at the end, you really won’t have much choice), you should follow my lead and have it with the rice and beans. I love homefries the much as the next ranch hand, but there’s something about the way the egg yolk and ranchero sauce mix together that works so well with frijoles refritos and arroz.

Since this recipe was produced for About, the following video link will take you off the site to watch the video, just don’t forget to come back. Enjoy!


Ingredients:
1 tbsp of tomato paste
1 tsp of vegetable oil
1/2 cup diced onions
big pinch of salt
2/3 cup diced green chilies – combination of hot or sweet i.e.jalapeno & Fresno chilies
2 cloves minced garlic
1/2 tsp chili powder
2 tsp oregano
14.5-oz diced tomatoes
1/2 cup of water
salt and cayenne pepper
Corn tortillas
Pepper jack cheese
2 eggs
Cilantro

Food Wishes Recipes: King Ranch Chicken Casserole Recipe – How to Make King Ranch Chicken


Green bean casserole

King Ranch Casserole – Revenge is a Dish Best Served Ironically Named

There are three things all real Texans love: high school football, executing people, and the King Ranch casserole. From what I hear, it’s impossible to go to any sort of potluck and not see one of these.

I love posting about these regional culinary favorites, especially when no one knows for sure where the name came from. It allows me to put forth my own, often ridiculous, theory. There is indeed a King Ranch in Texas – they say it’s one of the most famous ranches in the world, but as far as claiming credit for inventing this casserole goes, they’re not interested. You can’t really blame them…a legendary cattle ranch the birthplace of a famous chicken recipe? I don’t think so.

Here’s what I bet happened. You don’t build a cattle ranch without making a few enemies along the way. To get revenge, someone invented this dish and called it the King Ranch casserole just to annoy them. It was a brilliant plan. Without firing a shot, or bloodying a knuckle, they inflicted the ultimate cattleman humiliation.

Regarding this recipe, I have a few things to explain. I’m testing it for the cookbook, and so I wanted to stay true to the original formula, which explains the cans of soup. Also, as you’ll hear me say in the video, I tried to add an extra layer of tortilla on the bottom, which was a mistake. It threw off the meat to grain to condensed soup ratio. Two layers are plenty; so if you make it, take note.

Lastly, since condensed soup is dangerously high in sodium, I didn’t add any, but after sampling I decided that it did need some after all. Best to taste the sauce mixture and decide for yourself. Enjoy!

Meat from one cooked chicken
10 corn tortillas
1 white onion, diced
1 red bell pepper, diced
1 green bell pepper, diced
1 tablespoon vegetable oil
8 oz cheddar cheese, grated
1 can of cream of mushroom soup
1 can of cream of chicken soup
1 cup of chicken broth
1 can Ro-Tel diced tomatoes with green chilies
2 tablespoons sour cream
2 teaspoon cumin
1 teaspoon ancho chile powder
1/2 teaspoon dried oregano
1/4 teaspoon chipotle
1 teaspoon salt, maybe
