"As viscous as motor oil swirled in a swamp, redolent of burnt bell peppers nested in by incontinent mice and a finish reminiscent of the dregs of a stale can of Coca-Cola that someone has been using as an ashtray. Not a bad drink, though."--Excerpt from "The Moose Turd Wine Tasting" by T. A. Nonymous

Jacque Dahl


3 whole To 4 Whole Ripe Bananas (Thaw If Frozen)
1-½ cup White Sugar, (can use 1 cup sugar + 1/2 cup brown sugar)
½ cups Butter, Melted
3 whole Large Eggs (2 will make it cakier)
1-½ cup Flour (for more dense bread, use 2 cups)
1 teaspoon Baking Soda (heaping) (can also use 1 teaspoon baking powder and 1/2 teaspoon baking soda for fluffier bread)
½ teaspoons Salt
½ teaspoons Nutmeg
½ teaspoons Cinnamon, Heaping
4 Tablespoons Sour Cream
1-½ teaspoon Vanilla
1/2 cup chopped walnuts (optional)

2-½ Tablespoons Packed Brown Sugar
2 Tablespoons White Sugar
1-½ teaspoon Ground Cinnamon

(Try baking at 350º for 55-65 minutes)
Preheat oven to 325º. Spray 2 loaf pans with baking spray (oil + flour)—I use Baker’s Joy in the blue can.

In a large bowl, add your mushy bananas, white sugar and melted butter. Use a fork to mash them all together. Don’t worry about the banana lumps, it’s all good! Add eggs and mix with a fork to combine. Add all the dry ingredients and mix with a large spoon or spatula to combine (no need to break out the mixer for this one!). Now add your sour cream and vanilla.

Divide mixture between your 2 loaf pans. (It’s ok that it only fills them each 1/2 way up—this loaf will rise! I made the mistake once of putting all the batter in one pan. Total overflow to the max!)

For the streusel topping, combine brown sugar, white sugar, and cinnamon in a small bowl. Sprinkle generously on top of each unbaked loaf.

Bake at 325º for about an hour (check after 50 minutes in case your oven runs hot), until a toothpick inserted in the center of the loaf comes out clean.
