Have you tried banana bread?

Yesterday evening, I baked the banana bread mixture my hubby bought from Aldi. I asked my hubby why he bought the pre-made mixture for baking banana bread? He told me that he just want to try the product and want to know if it is better than what I usually baked. Well, that banana bread will be our breakfast and I will bring some with me for my lunch at work. I wonder how it will taste. I have not tried baking banana bread from a bought mixture. Do you buy a pre-mixture of banana bread or other for baking bread or cakes? I don't. I just mix my own ingredients for baking. Thanks for reading. I hope you are all fine. Happy Thanksgiving everyone who celebrate it.

I love banana bread. My mother prepares it from scratch beginning with overripe bananas.

Yes, that is how I bake banana bread or cake. From scratch when my bananas are over ripe @JohnRoberts

I do that too @marlina until my hubby brought the premixed banana bread for baking. That was the first and the last time for me to bake. Better make my own self made ingredients.

You should have included what you and your husband think about the taste.

@MALUSE, I have just tasted it today before going to work but my hubby not yet. I brought some slices for my lunch at work and it is delicious. I have to ask my hubby when I am home.

Dr Oetker wouldn't have created such a variety, I doubt, @MALUSE.

I don't bake very often but I always start from scratch although I do believe the pre-mix stuff is pretty good.

@thelme55 Is it easier to make from a mix than from scratch?

@Srbageldog yes, it is as you only have to add 1 or 2 ingredients for the recipe.

I like eating banana bread. This also reminds me of someone I knew that it cured his upset stomach. I'm not really sure though if he was telling the truth.

Me, too @Happy2BeMe. But this time I baked it from the ready mixed ingredients hubby brought from Aldi. I wouldn't do it again though as I had a heartburn that day when I have eaten the banana bread and I wondered why.

@Happy2BeMe yes, maybe. My tummy is sensitive. Maybe the company of that product has put something that my tummy can't stand.

I only bought a mixture for a Tirolean cake and it was so bad compared to what I do at home that I never tried anything ready made again.

So you have a bad experience with ready made mixes for baking. I do have now. The banana bread that I made in the photo above was really delicious but I got heartburn from eating them. I wonder why @LadyDuck

@thelme55 I think they add ingredients that we would never use and we have too much the habit to do everything at home from scratch.

Mayonnaise for a banana bread? Sounds weird @ridingbet. I will try with mayonnaise to know how it tastes.

Yes, you can come and eat the leftover banana bread @EddieHands. I have not eaten much as I had heartburn after eating this food. What a pity. I love banana bread.

Banana bread is the final resting place for over-ripe bananas - you don't get them as a pre-mix from Aldi. Now Sara Lee's, Dr. Oetker's or Betty Crocker's chocolate cake mix is an entirely different matter...

We never made or baked our banana bread cause a cheap version is always available in a bake shop near us and we could alao buy the more expensive and authentic ones in a mall also near by. Commercial banana bread most of the time contain artificial banana flavor which is an entirely different thing from banana, I think it would be wise to read the ingredients in the packet, you are a good cook so it wont be hard to modify or add real bananas if needed lol.
