CLASSIC BANANA BREAD RECIPE

Banana bread is a type of bread made from mashed bananas.It is often a moist, sweet, cake-like quick bread; however there are some banana bread recipes that are traditional-style raised breads.
Banana bread first became a standard feature of American cookbooks with the popularization of baking soda and baking powder in the 1930s. It appeared in Pillsbury’s 1933 Balanced Recipes cookbook, and later gained more acceptance with the release of the original Chiquita Banana’s Recipe Book in 1950.
National Banana Bread day is February 23.

Even if bananas appeared in the US in the 1870s, some food historians believe it was a byproduct of the Great Depression as resourceful housewives did not wish to throw away overripe bananas. Others believe the modern banana bread was developed in corporate kitchens to promote baking soda products.

BEST HOT DOG BUN RECIPE

hot dog bun is a soft bun specially designed to hold a hot dog or other type of sausage. 

The original goal was to make it possible to eat hot dogs without burning your hands. There are two types of bread: New England style hot dog buns top loading (“lobster buns”) and side loading buns, common in the United States, called American style.

There are regional variations such as loaves adorned with Chicago poppy seeds.
The term “hot dog” is said to have been coined at the end of the 19th century. Watching German immigrants eat sausages on buns, Americans reportedly joked that the sausages looked suspiciously like German dachshunds.
At the 1904 Louisiana Purchase Exposition in St. Louis, a German dealer served hot sausages called “Frankfurters”, in reference to his birthplace, Frankfurt. At first, he gave his customers gloves to hold his sausages, then his baker brother invented a solution: the hot dog bun was born.

When buttermilk is used in place of or in addition to milk, the pancake has got a tart flavor (buttermilk pancake).
