My family loves this recipe and i am so glad my Dad gave me the recipe for the banana bread. But I wanted to do something different than just an ordinary banana bread.

2 eggs

1/3 cup vegetable oil

For the swirl:

1/2 cup brown sugar

1/4 cup granulated sugar

1/2 tbls corn starch

1 tbls water

Heres what you do:

1. Mix together flour, sugar baking powder, baking soda, cinnamon. Slowly mix in 2 eggs and vegetable oil. Fold in mashed banana and set aside.

2. Pre-heat oven to 400 degrees F and grease a 3×9 bread dish.

3. In smaller bowl mix together ingredients for the swirl until sugar is pretty well broken down.

4. Pour small layer of batter into bread dish and add in some of the brown sugar swirl. Repeat process to get about 3 layers and a nice swirl on the top.

5. stick in oven for 35-40 minutes, until golden brown.

3. Mix brown sugar, cinnamon, and flour and scoop into middle of each of the rectangles.

4. Roll out other balk of dough amd cut into equal rectangles. Put each piece on top of other and press ends down first with your fingers then with a fork to make a nice edge. Poke holes in top to ventilate.

Blueberry Oat Bars

9 Oct

This wonderful recipe will bring all of the flavor and punch of Mom’s blueberry pie but packed into a square of goodness. A relatively simple recipe that uses fresh delicious blueberries, buttery flaky crust, and a amazingly sweet crumbly top. They can be made ahead of time and cooled or served warm with a scoop of ice cream for a decadent desert.

Heres what you need:
For the crust:
1 cup white sugar
1 teaspoon baking powder
3 cups all-purpose flour
1 cup unsalted butter (2 sticks or 8 ounces)
1 egg
1/4 teaspoon salt
1/2 cup brown sugar
For the filling:
Zest and juice of one lemon
5 cups fresh blueberries
1/2 cup raw sugar
4 teaspoons cornstarch
1 cup rolled oats
1. Preheat oven to 375 degrees (F) and grease a 9X13 in pan.
2. In a bowl combine flour, sugar, baking powder, and salt. Mix together before adding egg and butter. Mix with your hands but be sure not to break the butter apart too much. The chunks of butter will make for a more flaky crust.
3. In another bowl mixed the blueberries, sugar, cornstarch, and lemon juice+zest. Very gently fold all this together being careful not to squish the blueberries.
4. Pat half of the dough down in the bottom of the pan, cover with the blueberry mixture and sprinkle rolled oats over. Crumble the remaining dough on top and sprinkle the top with brown sugar
5. Bake for 1 hour or until the top gets a nice caramelized brown color. Cool for 10-15 minutes before cutting and serving.
