Banana Bread In a Minimalist Kitchen

I was able to get about 3kg of bananas for R5 at Fruit and Veg city: the catch was that they were browning fast. Still, I've been wanting to bake and in the absence of a mixer, measuring cups, bread pans, baking sheets, muffin pans, baking powder, white sugar, and most other things one needs to bake, I haven't done much of it.

Forgot to take a picture until we'd dug in.
Banana bread was  possible without all those things. I could eyeball the proportions in this great recipe. I doubled the recipe so that it would fit in the roasting pan and use up 8 bananas, and used some brown sugar, though not as much as the recipe called for. And the result was really good.

So, the good news for those of us with less-equipped kitchens is that baking is possible!
