Now that's what I call comfort food! I've never made one Wolfsong, but I found one on the web that's some sort of award winner. I'd make one in advance and taste.<g>

This is the 1999 American Pie Council's National Pie Championship's first place winner in the Custard Pie Category.

3 drops yellow food coloring (optional)

thank you addie will make ASAP and leave one in here for everybody to taste. I am one of those annoying people that dont eat what I bake. I bake all the pies for the holidays but dont eat a one of them. I just enjoy baking what I know other people like. The pumpkin pie is for my sister, the sweet potato is for my dad and now the egg custard for my mom. I dont eat sweets. Yes I know I'm a strange women I dont even like chocolate all that much.

I LOVE sweet potato pie wolfsong! I made it a couple of times many years ago and have sort of forgotten about. Do you have a recipe for it that you can share? Or, is it a secret?

I just spent 3 days with a friend who makes a KILLER banana bread! Maybe she'd be kind enough to post that recipe here.

I'd be happy to!

<b>Banana Walnut Bread</b>

1 1/4 cups unbleached all-purpose flour
1 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 teaspoon fine salt
2 large eggs, at room temperature
1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
1/2 cup unsalted butter, at room temperature, plus more for preparing the pan
1 cup sugar
3 very ripe bananas, peeled, and mashed with a fork (about 1 cup)
1/2 cup toasted walnut pieces

Sift the flour, baking soda, and salt into a medium bowl, set aside. Whisk the eggs and vanilla together in a liquid measuring cup with a spout, set aside. Lightly brush a 9 by 5 by 3-inch loaf pan with butter. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F.

In a standing mixer fitted with the paddle attachment or with an electric hand-held mixer, cream the butter and sugar until light and fluffy. Gradually pour the egg mixture into the butter while mixing until incorporated. Add the bananas (the mixture will appear to be curdled, so don't worry), and remove the bowl from the mixer.

With a rubber spatula, mix in the flour mixture until just incorporated. Fold in the nuts and transfer the batter to the prepared pan. Bake for 55 minutes or until a toothpick inserted into the center of the bread comes out clean. Cool the bread in the pan on a wire rack for 5 minutes. Turn the bread out of the pan and let cool completely on the rack. Wrap in plastic wrap. The banana bread is best if served the next day.

Oh yum, that looks delicious. That must taste so good with a cup of coffee. I like that it calls for three bananas. Too many of the recipes don't call for enough. I mean, what's banana bread without banana? Just bread I guess.

Thanks wolfsong! I will do that! Sweet potato pie this year. More yum.

About banana bread. I like to make banana bread. It's the best way to use up those last brown bananas. But no matter what I do--and believe me I've tried--the first and last third of my loaves are great, but the middle is always under-baked.

Lou, is it possible it's not being baked long enough? This loaf turns out perfectly, baked in a non-stick breadpan, baked for nearly an hour. Be sure to insert a knife in the center and that it comes out clean.

Well, yes, it's not getting baked long enough. But I've let loaves go for as long as 90-120 min. I insert the toothpick. I do everything that my mother and the home ec department taught me to do. Still. At some point during the long baking, I begin to worry that I am about to lose the entire loaf because it's getting too brown or too dry or something. I may have to confine myself to date nut bread. Now that I can do. ((((LiamFan)))) Banana-stuffed French toast, I can do, too!
