Sometimes, I just can't follow the simplest instructions and things like this happens:
Fail! What was supposed to be a pineapple banana bread.
Until I know the science behind the core ingredients (rising agent - yeast/baking soda-baking powder, sugar - brown/white, flour type, "moisturizer" - butter/oil/honey, liquid - milk/water/yolk/egg white), I really shouldn't try to fuss with the base ingredients or instructions!
However, I can't help but come up with excuses.
This past weekend, I was doing my daily foodgawking and spotted an awesome apple coffee cake with creme fraiche and honey recipe posted by Baking the Goods. I had most of the ingredients listed in the recipe but was too lazy and budget-oriented to get creme fraiche or use an additional Fuji apple that I had in the fridge. Instead, of 2 apples, I used 1 apple and 1 super ripe banana (just because it was an eyesore and I wanted to get rid of it). Instead of creme fraiche, I used whatever yogurt was left in the fridge - blueberry. I also nixed the yummy crumb topping because I was lazy and wanted to avoid additional sugar and butter.
Please rise properly and taste delicious even though I deviated from the recipe!
This recipe turned out forgiving and I was able to produce a beautiful and delicious Apple-Banana Coffee Cake with Walnuts and Honey!
