Well, not quite 30,000 pounds.
Last week I decided to do a banana bread smack down.
More Banana Banana Bread.
Banana Walnut Bread.
Now fight fans, "Let's get ready to rumble!"
Interestingly, the More Banana recipe and the Starbucks version contain the same amount of liquid. One has 1/2 cup of milk and a few tablespoons of oil and the other has 1/2 cup of oil and a few tablespoons of milk. Both recipes contain walnuts.
After careful review and thoughtful deliberation, the winner was the Starbucks version. This more traditional version was described by reviewers as having more banana flavor. It could be that the vanilla increased the intensity of the banana. In addition, it was more moist (hardly surprising since it had a bit of oil in it).
