Solar Cooking: Banana Bread

Tenaya wants to make banana bread in the solar oven, so we did. We followed the solarvore.com recipe for mango-banana bread. Didn’t have mango so we substituted 2 ripe bananas. Batter tasted great.

I SO LOVE THIS SOLAR OVEN!!!

• 1/2 cup coconut oil

• 1/2 cup sugar

• 1 egg (I used 2 med. eggs)

• 1tsp vanilla extract ( I used maple syrup)

• 2 bananas ripe

• 1 mango ripe ( I used 2 bananas)

• 2 cup flour

• 1 tbl baking powder

• 1 1/4 tsp salt

• 1/2 tsp cinnamon (I used 1 tsp)

Mango Banana Bread in Solavore Oven

Solar oven was preheated to 250 deg. Placed bread pans in and locked them up. its about 4 pm.
we have a slight wind that might be blowing the heat away from the oven. its staying at 225 deg. we are 45m into banking. the dough has rising twice its original size. its working!!! i put the reflectors on o see if i can keep it around 250 deg for the rest of the baking time.
2 hours later we have 2 fresh solar baked banana bread loaves! how cool is that!
