View Full Version : Please help me with my banana bread!
04-15-2006, 07:26 PM
I made some banana bread yesterday afternoon. I have been dehydrating (at just over 105) it for 24 hours but only just now was it firm enough to be turned over. So I turned it over and it had a really sour smell when I took off the plasic wrap (haven't got my teflex yet).
Does this mean it has gone bad? Help!!

Probably, if it has a sour smell. :(

I agree with Jenna. I don't think that dehydrating on plastic wrap will work. I use teflex sheets-but I have read that parchment paper works as well. I read that you can purchase "unbleached" parchment paper. I hope this helps.
I would not eat anything that smells bad.. :(

In Alissa's book she says you can use plastic wrap so that is what I did. I used plastic wrap for someting else (can't remember what) and it turned out good. Oh yeah, it was for flax crackers. They were wonderful.
I am just wondering why it took so long for my banana bread to get solid. What type of consistancy should the 'batter' be and how thick is the loaf when you spread it out?
I used sprouted wheat and I was wondering how long the sprouts should be. Maybe I didn't let them sprout long enough?

Chandra-I never made the banana bread-so I cannot help you..sorry.
I just don't remember that part about plastic wrap-I know that parchment paper works..but to dehydrate you need to circulate with air...& I'm thinking that plasitic wrap may be too "clingy.. Just a thought..

I wonder if I am using the right wheat to sprout. I got the only wheat they have at sproutpeople. Is this the right stuff?
Maybe my bananas were too big and it was to mushy which is why it too so long to dehydrate?
I am going to try to blueberry bread next. I hope this turns out.
Anyone have bread making experience here that could lend some advice??
