What’s In The Pantry Tonight?

Filed in Gather Food Essential by on October 12, 2011 0 Comments

The past couple of weeks, I’ve somewhat been fasting  because of a sports injury.  In viewing some Gather posts, I’ve seen some scrumptious meals.  Due to my less than normal activity level, but still wanting something good to eat, I checked my ‘pantry’.  Oct 9th, Donald H posted a recipe–Conroy’s corn casserole. Corn, butter, pasta, onion, cheddar cheese–yep, have all that. Turned out delicious. Then made a simple banana bread for the umteenth time, another delicious ‘pantry’ staple.The recipe for banana bread is common enough, but here’s “mine.”


3 large ripe bananas

1 cup of granulated sugar

1 egg

1/4 cup of oil

1&1/2 cups of all-purpose flour

1 teaspoon of baking powder

1 cup of chopped almonds

For a larger loaf use 2 cups of flour and 1/2 cup of oil and 2 eggs

I bake mine at 325 degrees in a 9×5-inch pan for 55 minutes

For a special crumble topping I need to credit chef Ina Garten

Her’s is for a 9-inch round cake


1/4 cup granulated sugar

1/3 cup light brown sugar

1 tsp cinnamon

1/8 tsp nutmeg

1/4 cup light brown sugar

1 tsp cinnamon
