TWD - Black and White Banana Loaf

This week's recipe was a Black and White Banana Loaf. I had lots of fun trying to make a nice marble without actually reading any of the marbling techniques. ;-) I think they still turned out pretty good. My loaf was quite dense, and I almost forgot it was going to be chocolately when I bit into it. The chocolate was very subtle for me (I used semi-sweet), so being a non-chocolate lover, I really liked that. I served it to friends who loved it, and one even was able to pick out the run flavor.

Isn't it awesome how coworkers somehow have that keen sense of being able to spoil your sneaky fun? It looks great!

Your co-worker must have had an ultra sensitive palette, I couldn't taste the rum at all. Your loaf looks tasty!

i agree with you that the rum was rather strong. But why shld there be any complaints? *hic*.. oops.

Looks good. I can't believe that someone could pick up the flavor that quickly. There was so little rum in there!

Very nice marbling, and sometimes alcohol would be a nice addition to work. Keep baking with it, and coworkers might just mellow out a bit!

Teanna said...

Those look so delicious and moist! I can't believe they tasted the rum, though! Nice work!

Rebecca said...

Alcohol and work go together likethis. ;)
