Bon Appetit’s Best Banana Bread

Our banana bread recipe comes from Bon Appetit, who claims it’s “the collective favorite”. No mean feat since they tried 14! 🙂

INGREDIENTS

  • Nonstick vegetable oil spray
  • 1½ cups all-purpose flour
  • 1¼ teaspoons baking soda
  • ¾ teaspoon kosher salt
  • 1 cup (packed) dark brown sugar
  • ⅓ cup Pinkie’s Farm full-cream unsweetened Greek yogurt
  • ¼ cup (½ stick) unsalted butter, room temperature
  • 2 large eggs
  • 4 large very ripe bananas, mashed (about 1½ cups)
  • ½ cup chopped bittersweet or semisweet chocolate (optional)
  • ½ cup chopped walnuts or pecans (optional)

PROCEDURE

  • Preheat oven to 350°. Lightly coat 8½x4½” loaf pan with nonstick spray and line with parchment paper, leaving a generous overhang on long sides. Whisk flour, baking soda, and salt in a medium bowl.

  • Using an electric mixer on medium-high speed, beat brown sugar, mascarpone, and butter in a large bowl until light and fluffy, about 4 minutes. Add eggs one at a time, beating to blend after each addition and scraping down sides and bottom of bowl as needed.

  • Reduce speed to low, add flour mixture, and mix until just combined. Add bananas and mix just until combined. Fold in chocolate and/or walnuts, if using. Scrape batter into prepared pan; smooth top.

  • Bake bread until a tester inserted into the center comes out clean, 60–65 minutes. Transfer pan to a wire rack and let bread cool in pan 1 hour. Turn out bread and let cool completely (if you can resist) before slicing.

Italian Scamorza

We now make Italian Scamorza, a soft cheese that melts like a dream. We sell it to Old Swiss Inn who smokes it with apple-chips and uses it in many of their dishes like their pizzetas, their Scamorza Skillet, and a luscious plate of melted Scamorza.

Smoked Scamorza Fondue

 

Old Swiss Inn is featuring our Smoked Scamorza in their newest fondue, out just in time for Valentines’ week! They use our Smoked Scamorza and melt it with white wine, throw in some fresh tomatoes and serve it with bread and apples. Delish!!

Repost from @oldswissinn: Let your romance smolder with our Smoked Scarmoza Fondue. Share a luscious cheese fondue made from apple-smoked cheese and tomatoes served with bread and apples.

Miriam College Goes To The Farm!

Early this year, Miriam College brought their pre-kinder classes to the farm to learn about dairy! It was a fun field trip for everyone: teachers, parents, and kiddos! We welcomed over 100 people in the farm and we were so impressed by how well-behaved the Miriam students were. Obviously the hard-working teachers are doing their job well! 🙂

Here’s Pinkie herself surrounded by all the teachers, who were so happy to see the owner of the farm so hands-on.

Smoked Scamorza At Old Swiss Inn

Old Swiss Inn Makati carries our full line of products so it’s no surprise that they start using our products in their menu! They’ve started serving our Smoked Scamorza like their Raclette: just melted into delicious molten deliciousness, on a plate. Simplicity is the best policy. 🙂

If you’re curious about how it tastes, the smoked flavor adds a hint of bacon-y-ness, but this has no hint of meat whatsoever! So rejoice, vegetarians! 🙂 Read more about our Smoked Scamorza in the blog below.
