Testing a banana bread tip

Feb 2nd, 2014 | by Eat Drink Indy | Cook, News

Squishy bananas on the kitchen counter today meant it was once again time to make banana bread. The last time I made some loaves and posted photos on Facebook, local pastry chef Cindy Hawkins of Circle City Sweets offered some advice:

“Here’s a tip to get a pretty crack down the middle. Melt a little butter and draw a line down the middle. The fat tells the bread where to split.”

So today when I made a loaf, I gave it a try and am happy to report that it worked. Take a look at the last loaves I made compared to this one. Thank, Cindy!
