It’s lucky because I was feeling very lazy this morning.
After a mission of a week (although it was one day shorter in work terms) I was knackered. My friend’s better so she said she’d do the horses, leaving me to sleep for TEN (count ’em) hours. Happy, happy me.
I then had time to make a lovely lazy breakfast, involving this:
And this is where the other laziness comes in!
So instead of my usual “start eating while it’s still roasting hot” approach, I left it to cool in the tin. I then, for some reason, had an attack of idleness and kept putting off cutting it up. I always slice it completely at the start so I can freeze some as not even I can eat a whole loaf before it goes bad 🙂
But I just couldn’t be arsed! Seriously, it sat in a box on the side for about three days until I eventually got my lazy arse – and knife – into action.
But when I did…..
Look at those slices!
I usually get about 14 slices out of a loaf this size – maybe 15 – and they tend to crumble a bit. But by some magic process to do with sitting on the counter, this loaf had magically fused together!
I cut 17 slices; each one slim, crumble-free and holding together like the daddy himself 🙂
And that meant more banana bread for me.
It also meant something I’d wanted to make for ages but had no time for:
Banana bread French toast!
I used 1tbsp egg white, 1tbsp milk and a splash of vanilla to soak the slices in, then sauted.
Spread with almond butter and strawberry jam… perfect.
Sometimes laziness does pay off 🙂
