Everyone who loves bananas should definitely own The Banana Cookbook: 50 Simple and Delicious Recipes, by Sam Brooks. Of course most of us buy bananas, and before eating them all, find that they are overripe. This cookbook has recipes for using those old bananas. However, it also includes recipes using bananas before they are overripe and instead of fats and dairy. There is a good variety of recipes, including breads, muffins, crepes, desserts, pies, cakes, and ice creams. Brooks has included something for every banana aficionado.
Included in this cookbook are the regular banana recipes that most of us make anyway at home: banana bread (a good recipe, in fact), Oaty Banana Muffins, and Chocolate and Banana French Toast. But there are also unique banana recipes, like Banana Chips, Banana Millionaire’s Shortbread, as well as the famous UK dessert, Banoffee Pie. The Gooey Chocolate Brownies are to die for, and definitely worth taking the time to make. Some of the recipes are fairly easy, and the instructions are easy to follow. There is even a one-ingredient banana ice cream that is a no-brainer.
One of the best parts about this cookbook is that it has beautiful photographs of almost all of the recipes, making it difficult to choose which recipe to make next. One recipe that will be in everyone’s queue is the Banana Upside Down Cake; it is mouthwatering. There are also batter dipped deep fried bananas, as well as frozen banana pops, which will appeal to everyone, especially children.
If you love bananas, and if you want to cook with them, then this cookbook is for you.
