Pumpkin Banana Bread

Pumpkin Banana Bread

I love the butternut squash, boiled, grilled, as a side dish, with rice, in a soup, with curry, and who knows how also.

I adore banana bread too, so it came to my mind to mix these two bastards. I like this recipe because it’s so easy and the smell in the kitchen is just amazing.

Ingredients:

  • 4 eggs
  • 0,2 – 0,3 kg pumpkin
  • 2 ripe bananas
  • 4 tbs honey
  • 1,5 tbs cinnamon
  • 5-6 tbs coconut flour
  • 5-6 tbs oat flour
  • 2 tbs shredded coconut
  • 1 pinch of baking soda

Boil the pumpkin for 10-15 minutes until you can remove the puree with a spoon. Mix the eggs with the honey, cinnamon and smash the bananas with a fork and the puree together. Add the flours, coconut and the baking soda. You can lay the dough for some minutes until the flours absorb the moisture. If it’s not thick enough you can always add some coconut flour.

Put the dough in a cake form and bake for 50-55 minutes on 170°C, until the cake doesn’t stick to the fork :).

Have fun in the kitchen!

American dream

American dream

 

Welcome to The United States where they put sugar into the salad; where they say “Hello, How are you?”, and they mean “Hello!” ; where random people smiles on you on the street; where they adore your accent; where they have their own units; where they have always sales; and where Ryan Gosling lives.

Yesterday it was one month ago that i arrived to the motherland of McDonalds. A bit everything is like in the movies, giant jeeps, wide roads, many people, american accent, hamburgers. The weirdest for me after Israel, that i understand every word on the streets, and also the fake smile on the people faces, a bit like the smile reflex of the babies – you smile on them and they smile back….in that case not a naturally way.

Hello, How are you? I use to answer on this question, even if they didn’t mean it at all, and then they are staring at me, it’s actually pretty funny.

About the location

New York state, almost at the border of Canada. The winter is coming…haha, but for real, really soon we need to fight with -30°C degrees. After Israel, i have some problem with the cold weather, i miss the sun, the sea, the long walks at the beach and the hot sand under my feet.

About the food

We buy the groceries from Walmart, they have all these crazy big packages. The milk is like 4 liters…incredible. In every products you can find the corn syrup…ahh. Even that they have that many fat people and also diabetics, there is sugar in everything, of course you can find some sugar free stuffs, if you’re looking for them really hard, but they are more expensive than the normal ones.

Almost for all the products, they have the kosher version, of course it’s not for me, but for my roomates. But i think it’s an interesting fact.

The coffee is a shit…yes, as i said. Even if it’s Starbucks, or whatever, it’s very watery. I started to drink the instant Nescafé, but you don’t know what would i give for a turkish coffee…

I also checked the Burger King, i mean the prices there. For around 4 dollars, you can have a whole menu, which would be cheap, but also scary…you don’t need to wondering about why they have that amount of obese people.

About people

So, shallowness, you can feel it in the air. Many times i recognize, that behind the questions there is no interest, they ask you, because they always ask. Of course i met many people who was interesting, positive, and intelligent.

Many times when they ask me where am i from, and i say from Hungary….i see the total blur in their mind, but they are nodding like crazy. Me, i’m enjoying all these minutes, and also the tips they say about my origin. I was Turkish, Polish, Spanish, British (totally inexplicable), Ukrainian, French, Belgian…and who knows what else. The point is that they are in love with almost any accent.

I still need to get used to this mentality…but i will keep you posted about the happenings these days.

For now this is the end…
