Question for the bakers???

Recommended Posts

Last night at the neighborhood bonfire one of the moms brought out fresh from the oven banana bread. I am not a baker but I was thinking to myself that warm banana bread would be absolutely awesome in the morning for deer camp. The problem is the cooking time and I know that if I was up baking at 4 am, the other guys in the cabin would string me up. So here is my question: can I par bake a loaf or three of banana bread abd finish it off in the cabin in like 20 inutes or so?

Not much of a baker so take this for what its worth. I actually did par bake some zucchini bread, not on purpose, just because I am not a baker and hate "trivial things like measuring and timers. Anywho, the bread did not set up properly with this thick oozing type stuff that started to seep out after a couple of days. So, would have to agree with the first two callers, and really like Jim's idea wink

One of my fortes is banana bread at the cabin. I typically pre-mix all of the dry ingredients in a ziplock and then mix the eggs, butter, vanilla, and eventually milk right before baking. I slow cook mine at 300 for 1.5 hours because I make a dense bread. I typically set my alarm early, go outside to hand mix, and then slide into the oven and go back to sleep. Most guys like waking up to that fresh-baked bread smell, no matter what they tell you beforehand.

If you don't want to mess with that, either of the above options are good. I don't mind the reheating idea but would likely prefer to make the batter the night before, put it in the fridge, and then just extend the cooking time a bit to account for the cold batter.

My golden advise for banana bread is to freeze bananas that are in the mostly brown stage and then let thaw in a ziplock or bowl. When it comes time to "mash" the bananas, the skins will almost fall apart and the bananas will ooze out. I always squeeze out the banana "juice" from the peels. It sounds and looks gross but is well worth it. You really get a great banana flavor from those thawed, black, oozy bananas!
