Okay so...some of y'all are aware that I'm writing this novel about a baker...so I'm thinking I'm going to start off each chapter with a recipe.  The only problem is that I only have a few non-commercial recipes myself and since several are secret family recipes I can't go publishing them, hehehe (I can only share the Buchanan family cheesecake recipe with people I totally love and trust yanno).

So I'm putting out a call for recipes!  Anyone who shares one will totally get a shout-out in the dedication ;)  Any recipe will do, but especially those of baked goods/desserts.  Help me, flist!

i have just a handful posted there. some are adapted but i mostly found them around the internet, originally.
i make morning glory muffins at my work, people ask for them every day so apparently they're pretty good. the recipe's really long and i don't seem to have it typed up, but if you want it let me know. it has carrots, apples, raisins, walnuts, and coconut in it.

I highly recommend getting Flo Braker's "the simple art of perfect baking" out of your library!! the recipes are good, but most of all it really helped me understand baking better. it might help in your writing. but then again i read cookbooks for pleasure. :)

here's the banana bread i also make regularly there. i'm quite bored of it but it's pretty good.

Banana Bread

2 c. flour
1 teaspoon baking soda
1/4 teaspoon salt (omit if using salted butter)
1 Tablespoon cinnamon

whisk together above ingredients in medium bowl. set aside.

1/2 stick of butter, melted
1/4 c. applesauce
3/4 c. brown sugar
1/4 c. honey
1 egg
3 ripe bananas

beat together sugar and butter. add honey, eggs, and bananas. gradually add flour mixture and mix until just blended (don't over-mix). pour into greased loaf pan and top with walnuts if you like. bake at 350' for about 1 hour.
