The Recipe Video That Started it All, Banana Bread

When I first started this channel with my Banana Bread Recipe, I never thought I would be doing a campaign to try and raise funds to do more with it but here it is. This was a rough shoot done on my phone and edited on iMovie, which is what I use for every video. I haven’t had much experience with anything else you just kind of use what is available. Bottom line, I had a lot of fun shooting and editing, so much that I was hooked in an instant.

Check out my campaign and give it a share, it would help a lot.

There has been a lot of lulls between videos, mostly because of the offshore work. Cooking on a boat takes up 12 hours a day and the internet is not exactly video friendly. So in my time off I would have get as many done as possible which was not a lot sometimes. Anyway I’m going to keep going and build on my channel and hopefully soon have a cooking show to reach more people who can enjoy my recipes.

Here is the Fresh Banana Bread Recipe it makes one loaf.

 

Ingredients

  • 1 2/3 cups of flour
  • 1 cup sugar
  • 1 tsp baking soda
  • 1/4 tsp salt
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • 2 eggs
  • 1/2 cup vegetable oil
  • 3 tbsp greek yogurt (or regular)
  • 3 mashed bananas

Directions

  1. Heat oven to 350 degrees, grease and flour one loaf pan.
  2. In a medium mixing bowl whisk together flour, cinnamon, baking soda and salt then set aside.
  3. In another bowl whisk together eggs and sugar well. It will be thick and light in colour. You can use a stand mixer, hand beater or whisk.
  4. Add oil to the eggs and sugar while whisking, then add the vanilla, bananas and yogurt.
  5. Fold the flour mixture into the banana mixture until well mixed.
  6. Pour that into your greased bread pan and bake for 45 minutes at 350 degrees or until a toothpick comes out clean when inserted in the middle.
  7. Cool on a wire rack and enjoy.

Banana Bread Pudding with a Fosters Sauce

This is the latest addition to my cooking channel on YouTube. It’s my twist on a classic Bread Pudding. I’m always trying to mix things up doing different variations of some great dishes and this Banana Bread Pudding is a huge hit on the boats that I’ve been on so I wanted to share it no matter what. The Fosters Sauce is just what you would expect, it’s the Sauce that is used in my bananas foster recipe and it goes great with the Pudding and some vanilla ice cream.

It took a while to get the video up this week because I am on the boat with a little mini laptop equipped only with windows movie maker. Overall I’m not impressed with it but there are a couple of things that would great if it were added to iMovie. Well mostly just the ability to move text anywhere. Either way it didn’t work, there was always an error when trying to export it. So I had to wait until a chance to get to town and pick up the MacBook, then I was set. There is way too much background noise on the boat so it had to be a text based video but all in all the Banana Bread Pudding video came out great. We have no wifi so I had to walk up to the library and upload the video, it was quite cold, the library was closed so I must have looked like a fool sitting on the step doing some touch ups, adding music and uploading. Let me know what you think of it in the comments below or on the YouTube page.

It’s been a day and the video has only gained 10 views which is sad considering the amount of work gone into it but that’s the game. YouTube is a very hard cookie to crack. Please take the time to watch, like and share it. You can’t give up just because your videos are not getting views, it takes time and care. Always go back and tweak them until they work, changing tags and such. Anyway that’s all part of the adventure right? Time to give you what you came for.
