it's still TWD here: Black and White Banana Loaf


By the skin of my teeth people, I present to you the results of this pre-vacation bakestravaganzaa, the banana loaf.  I was mildly skeptical, especially since I had to use semisweet chocolate instead of dark, but I'm pleased with the results.  The rum and nutmeg add a nice flavor, and the lemon adds a loghtness without being noticeably lemony (which is not generally a bad thing, but I don't see it as a complement to banana- do you?).  I'm also happy to report that my marble-ing turned out with no issues, despite it being my first attempt at marble-ing anything.  I took Dorie's wise words to heart and was careful to use restraint.  wise words I say, wise words!  Find the recipe at A Year in the Kitchen, and the adventures of my fellow TWD bloggers here
