It's been a while since I made something good.

I'm not gonna lie guys, it's been a long, busy couple of weeks. Since I work in a restaurant, and Mother's Day just passed, I've been crazy busy. I'm kind of exhausted. I got home yesterday from work, took a nap and got kicked out of my apartment because my landlord failed to mention she was showing it...again. SO, when I got back I was all, "Fuck this, I'm baking."


And what I made was possibly the best thing I've ever made, I'm serious. I made handi-banana bread. SO FREAKING GOOD. It didn't taste handi at all. Light, fluffy, moist. It had everything going. I use past tense because we got drunk and it's obviously all gone now.

  • fluffy
  • moist
  • not grainy at all, which I wasn't expecting
  • no rise time, because my poor stomach can't even handle yeast
  • stupid good
  • I didn't use a recipe, or even measure anything
  • fuck
But I'm trying it out again (not that I measured anything again) but I think I have the ratios down.


1.5 cups brown rice flour
0.5 cups white rice flour
2 tbsp tapioca starch
2 tsp guar gum
1 tbsp baking powder
0.5 tsp salt
0.25 cup oil
2 eggs
a bunch of water, maybe 3 cups? maybe more (sorry) (UPDATE: 1.5 cups was enough.)

(If you want the banana bread, add 2 bananas, 1/2 cup carob chips, and 1/2 cup sugar)

1. Set oven for 350, oil a bread pan, and mix them dry ingredients.
2. Add the wet ingredients, and when you add the water make sure it's just a big goopy mess. The trick to baking with rice flour is to add twice the liquid you would use for wheat flour.
3. Slop that delicious mess into your bread pan, and pop it in the oven for like... 30 mins.
