Falling Flat

The banana bread, though delicious, did not come out correctly. Mostly, it didn't rise. I don't know what went wrong - too much banana? too little flour? wrong cooking temp?

Like I said, it's delicious and we've already eaten more than half of it. But it's just not as pretty as it usually is.

Also, I don't have time to take a picture and upload it, etc. etc. etc., but right now Elphie and Milo are sitting on opposite sides of the desk. They're like perfect little bookends...or gargoyles! You'll just have to take my word for it when I say how cute they look!

I think the deal with the bread was the brown sugar. I think brown sugar attracts more moisture and keeps baked goods from rising as high as if you used granulated sugar. I have nothing to really back this up, just something I vaguely remember from some cooking show. Probably an Alton Brown "Good Eats" thing.

I still bet it was good, though.
