By the way, the toasted banana bread MAKES this.

Banana Bread Recipe #225

1 cube UNSALTED BUTTER (room temperature)
1 cup GRANULATED SUGAR
3 LARGE EGGS (room temperature)
3 (really ripe) BANANAS, mashed until creamy
2 Tbsp BANANA LIQUEUR or 1 tsp BANANA EXTRACT

2 cups ALL-PURPOSE FLOUR
1 tsp BAKING SODA
1 tsp CINNAMON
½ tsp SALT
¾ cup SWEETENED-FLAKED COCONUT
½ cup CHOPPED WALNUTS

Position the rack in the bottom third of the oven and preheat to 350°F. Butter a 2 pound loaf pan, line with parchment paper, then butter the paper.

Cream butter and sugar together until light. Beat in eggs then the banana puree and liqueur or extract.

Sift together flour, baking soda, salt and cinnamon. Mix in coconut and walnuts. Gently fold the wet ingredients into the dry until they’re just mixed.

Spoon batter into the loaf pan and bake for 1 hour or until tester inserted in center, comes out clean. Cool for 5 minutes and turn out onto a rack to cool completely.

=================================================

Chipotle-Honey Peanut Butter

1 lb PEANUTS, no skins
2 Tbsp BUTTER
2 Tbsp HONEY
1 tsp KOSHER SALT

½ Tbsp CHIPOTLE POWDER
¼ tsp GARLIC POWDER
¼ tsp CHILI POWDER
1/3 cup SUGAR

2 Tbsp UNSALTED BUTTER
¼ - ½ cup PEANUT OIL

Preheat oven to 325° F. In pan large enough to hold all the nuts, melt butter, honey and salt. Add nuts and stir to coat. Transfer to a baking pan. Bake at 325 for 20 to 25 minutes. Stirring occasionally. (Keep an eye on them, they burn easily.)

In another bowl, mix sugar and spices. When the nuts are done, pour them into the bowl with the spice mix and toss well. Shake or stir every few minutes to break clumps.

When completely cooled, put the peanuts and butter in a food processor fitted with the steel blade and process. As the peanuts and butter are being processed, slowly add enough peanut oil to achieve the texture you desire. Store in the refrigerator.


Do not meddle in the affairs of dragons, for you are crunchy and taste good with ketchup.
