- Flour - 2 cups, 3 handfuls, and the remnants collected from the 12 sq. inches of lightly powdered counter space.
- Baking powder - Somewhere between 1 and 2 teaspoons.
- Salt - 1.5 turns of the salt grinder
- Honey - 3 knives worth, maybe 2 if your knife is extra long or your honey isn't crystallized.
- Eggs - 2.
- Butter - Whatever glop of butter you have left over from a stick of butter
- Bananas - A bunch [meaning "a bunching" of bananas and not necessarily "a lot" of bananas, as a small bunch of 3 would probably work just as well as a large bunch of 10].
- Walnuts - More than 3 handfuls but less than 7.
- Potato - 3 chunks that were left on the cutting board from other meal preparations and mixed in with the mushing of the bananas.
- Paprika - However much you dump in while you're under the impression that it is cinnamon.
- Cinnamon - 1 pinch, 2 pinch... oh, just use it all.
- Sploosh all the dry stuff together.
- You may need to account for vigorous splooshing [that's where the powder goes all "ploosh!"] with another handful or so of flour or more counter scraping/scrounging.
- Too much baking powder can be disastrous to the taste buds. Hence, to get the right amount, hold a teaspoon over your bowl of dry ingredients and attempt to pour/shake the baking powder into the tiny teaspoon. Baking powder will land directly in the bowl and in the spoon. Do not fear! Just pour/shake until you fill the teaspoon and dump confidently! The baking powder in the spoon will perfectly join with the baking powder in the bowl for the ideal amount of baking powder overall.
- Gloop all the wet stuff together.
- A little eggshell never hurt anyone, right?
- If your glop of butter is more than 0.5 sticks, don't use it all.
- Two-handed banana mushing gives soo much more satisfaction than one-handed banana mushing or, hamster forbid, potato-masher banana mushing.
- Make everything go together in one big happy bowl.
- For less clean-up, dump the dry stuff into the wet stuff.
- For more clean-up, dump the wet stuff into the dry stuff.
- If you just really get a hankering for clean-up, dump the wet stuff and the dry stuff into an entirely new bowl.
- Mix until the dry stuff has lost its identity as dry stuff and successfully turns into wet stuff.
- Pour into some kind of baking container and bake away!
- For a temperature knob, turn it as far clockwise as your wrist comfortably goes.
- For a temperature button, hold down the up arrow for 3 seconds.
- Once you start smelling tasty smells, wait 15 minutes.
- Check for burning.
- Maybe poke it with a fork?
There you have it. A recipe for a potentially tasty non-disaster. If all recipes were written in my noggin's style of loopy ambiguity, I believe meal preparation would be much more exciting.
Revolutionizing the culinary world one nearly charred meal at a time.
