I know, I know, I should be studying. But I have to nourish myself too, right?

This banana gingerbread came together as a spur-of-the-moment type thing. There were some bananas in the house that were slightly past their prime, which meant that they were perfect for baking. Using a recipe from Baking Bites, I happily began measuring and mixing. In no time, there was warm banana gingerbread to be had! The loaf was very moist, and it used a minimal amount of fat. I used a mixture of soy milk and a squeeze of lemon juice as a substitute for the buttermilk.

I'm on the search for more recipes that includes molasses, since I have a Costco-sized bottle of molasses. Blogs and magazines are abound with molasses-heavy recipes right around now, so I'm sure I will have no problem with that. Did you know that one tablespoon of molasses provides you with 10% of your daily intake of calcium? What's more, it also gives you 20% of your recommeded dose of potassium! I had no idea molasses was so nutrient-dense until I read the back of my molasses bottle. Therefore, eating slice after slice of banana gingerbread must be good for you, right?

    Dammit, you can't make an anonymous post here! That completely ruins the fun! If you do have the option to remain unnamed, or choose your name, could you be a dear and tell me how to do this?

    Haha, I'm actually not too sure how to do that. Can't you just put down a fake name?
