Banana bread ingredients

  • 2 cups of white flour
  • 2/3 cup of white granulated sugar
  • ½ cup of cannabis-infused vegetable oil (or alternative)
  • ¼ cup of white milk
  • 2 large bananas
  • 2 large eggs
  • 6 tablespoons of butter (or margarine)
  • 6 slightly heaped tablespoons of brown sugar
  • 2 tablespoons of instant coffee grind
  • 1 teaspoon of baking powder
  • 1 teaspoon of baking soda
  • 1 teaspoon of cinnamon
  • 1 teaspoon of vanilla extract
  • ¼ teaspoon of salt

Glaze ingredients

  • ½ cup of icing sugar
  • ½ cup of brown sugar
  • ¼ cup of cream (heavy or half and half)
  • 2 tablespoons of butter
  • ¼ teaspoon of vanilla extract

Tools

  • Bread pan
  • Large mixing bowl
  • Medium mixing bowl
  • Whisk
  • Potato masher
  • Saucepan
  • Ladle or mixing spoon

Instructions

  1. Preheat the oven to 350°F.

  2. Start with the larger of the two mixing bowls and add salt, baking powder, cinnamon, flour and baking soda.

  3. Use a whisk to remove any lumps and ensure that the powdered ingredients are thoroughly combined.

  4. Peel and crush bananas in the other bowl until they are of a thin consistency.

  5. On top of the banana paste add the milk, instant coffee, vegetable oil, eggs and sugar, then whisk them together until the coffee has completely dissolved.

  6. Now slowly add those wet ingredients to the larger dish and mix them all together until the mixture is smooth and lump-free.

  7. Grease a loaf pan with butter or cooking oil and fill it with the batter. Bake for one hour or until you can poke it with a toothpick that comes out clean. Once finished, pull it out of the oven and set aside.

  8. It’s time to move on to the delicious caramel sauce, add cream, sugars and butter to a saucepan and set it to medium heat.

  9. Stir the mixture regularly to avoid scalding until the liquid reaches a boil.

  10. Boil the caramel mix for 2 or 3 minutes until it begins to thicken, then remove it from the heat.

  11. Slowly pour the caramel sauce over the top of the hot banana bread while it is still in the loaf pan or wait until it has cooled enough to rest it on a plate for a fancier effect. This banana bread recipe is excellent served hot out of the oven but also holds up well to storage in the fridge in an airtight container for up to one week.

How long do edibles last?

Edibles are a tricky bunch, as some people get overwhelmingly stoned from just one, while other claims to be hardly affected. Though we might not be able to tell you what to expect as far as the kind of effects you will feel from this banana bread recipe, we do know that edibles can last for up to 12 hours after the initial ingestion, so it’s important not to give in to a slice until you have all of your tasks for the day completed.
