AreoGarden Update and Banana Bread

It has been 26 days since I put together my AreoGarden and I must say I am very happy with the results.  If you are thinking about getting one of these systems I highly recommend it.  You won't be disappointed.

I had some very ripe bananas so I decided to make Banana Bread.  I found this recipe on it is Flour's Famous Banana Bread Recipe.  It is so easy to make and very yummy.
The only thing I changed was I used pecans instead of walnuts.


  • 1 2/3 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1 cup plus 2 tablespoons sugar
  • 2 eggs
  • 1/2 cup oil
  • 3 1/2 bananas, very ripe, mashed
  • 2 tablespoons creme fraiche or sour cream
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 2/3 cup walnuts, toasted and chopped


Set oven to 350 degrees F. Line the bottom of a loaf pan with parchment paper.
Sift together the flour, baking soda, cinnamon and salt. Beat sugar and eggs with a whisk until light and fluffy, about 10 minutes. Drizzle in oil. Add mashed bananas, creme fraiche, and vanilla. Fold in dry ingredients and nuts. Pour into a lined loaf pan and bake for about 45 minutes to 1 hour.

Until Next Time,
