They will last several days if you don't eat them all first! Note: If you have two ripe bananas, and don't have time to make the bars, you can freeze them. After they're defrosted, they look really ugly, and are quite mushy, but are fine once you drain any extra water and cook them. | 1 3/4 c. all-purpose flour 1/2 tsp. baking powder 1/2 tsp. baking soda 1/4 tsp. salt 1 c. ripe bananas, mashed (2 med) 1/2 c. nuts (optional) | From the Kitchen of: Sienna G. | 9

14: Sonntags-Zopf (Sunday Bread) | Ingredients: 500 g flour half a cube of yeast (Andronico’s) 1 tablespoon of sugar 100 g butter | Directions: Sieve the flour into a bowl, mix it with the salt, and make a hollow in the center. Dissolve yeast in cold milk, add the sugar. Put the mix in the hole and cover it a little with flour. Let the butter melt slowly in a pan. Take the pan from the heat and add the milk and cream. Add the milk –butter mix to the flour. Knead it by hand until you have a smooth dough. Test: Make a little cut with a knife and check if you see small airholes in the dough. Cover it with a wet cloth and leave it to rest for at least one hour in a warm place to let the dough rise. Each zopf is made up of two strands. To make the loaf, lay one strand horizontally on the work surface, and place another vertically across the middle. Take the right end of the horizontal roll and lay it leftwards across the top one, and take the left end and lay it rightwards. Then take the two ends of the vertical roll and do the same, bringing the upper end downwards and the lower end upwards. Continue alternately until the braid is complete, then press the ends together. Alternatively, twist the strands together from the top, like a rope, then bend the twisted dough in half and twist the ends round each other again. Never mind if it doesn’t come out quite right. It should taste just as good! Paint the loaf with the egg yolk mixed with cream. Bake for about 40 minutes at 200-220C (370-380 F), turning heat up towards the end in order to brown the bread. | 5 dl milk 1 dl cream 1 tablespoon of salt 1 yolk of an egg 1 teaspoon cream | From the Kitchen of: Giulia C. | 11

15: Chapati or Roti | Ingredients: 2 cups Atta (whole wheat flour) 1/2 cup water 2 teaspoonfuls oil 2 teaspoonfuls of ghee (clarified butter) | Directions: Mix the wheat flour, oil and some water. Add the remaining water gradually, kneading to a soft, smooth dough. Cover the dough with wet cloth for about 20 minutes. Knead the dough again for about 3 to 4 minutes. Break the dough in small pieces and make tiny balls, slightly smaller than the size of a lemon. Heat the tawa (flat pan or griddle) on fire. Roll the small balls of dough into fairly thin rounds about 5 to 6 inches in diameter (using a rolling pin). Place the flattened rounds of roti on the hot griddle and reduce the flame. Cook the chapati on moderate heat throughout. Turn over when tiny bubbles appear on the surface. Cook until brown spots are formed on the under (lower) surface. Turn over and press lightly on the sides till the chapatti is puffed or bloated. Remove from hot pan and apply ghee on one side. Serve immediately or keep them wrapped in aluminum foil. Rotis can be used a wrap for vegetables. | From the Kitchen of: Vedaant B. | 12

Bake in buttered and floured loaf pan until a toothpick stuck in the middle comes out clean, about 55 to 60 minutes. For extra deliciousness, sometimes we pour half the batter in the pan, drop a few glops of nutella on top, and cover with the rest of the batter and bake. | One egg, beaten 1 teaspoon baking soda Optional: toasted walnuts, chocolate chips, nutella | From the Kitchen of: Gavin S. | 14
