Today I spent a better part of my morning doing some experimenting.
First project: vegan apple banana muffins (plus bonus mini loaf because I ran out of muffin space)!
(mini loaf not pictured, it was a dumpy ugly little thing)
This went okay. I did alter the recipe somewhat. Since I didn't have soy milk handy, I substituted water and added another tsp of oil or so for the lost fats, as well as adding ~1 tbsp light corn syrup for a touch more sweetness. I also added in 3 tsp of chia seeds, which don't really add flavor but a bit extra texture and some nutrition. I didn't totally love the end result, but I didn't throw them out, either. I don't suspect I'll be making this one again.
Second today: regular old fashioned banana nut bread!
(my photography skills are not as honed as keifermiller's)
This is the very recipe I posted in the last baker's thread, except this time I made it exactly to the recipe and ho-lee shit this is the best banana bread I've ever made. I know I said last time I said I didn't miss the butter flavor in the end result, and that was true, it was still good, but this is miles ahead better than the last loaf. This will absolutely be going in my "holiday baking" cache of recipes.
