Lately I’ve been worried that all this baking is somehow compromising my masculinity. And that’s why I’ve decided to bake the manliest type of cake in the entire fucking world - banana bread.
Why banana bread? I’m glad I pretended you asked. There are two reasons why banana bread is the manliest type of cake, and they are as follows:
1 - IT’S NOT A CAKE (even though it’s made like a cake and looks like a cake and tastes like a cake). It’s BREAD. It’s banana BREAD. And BREAD is for MEN.
2 - Making banana bread is DEAD MANLY. Here is proof…
First, mash up some bananas. WITH YOUR FIST.
Next, put it in a bowl with some other ingredients and mix it all together. WITH YOUR FIST.
Then pour it into a tin. WITH YOUR FIST.
Finally, bake it for about 40 minutes. With an oven. (As everyone knows, the oven is the fist of the kitchen). THERE. You are now ready to eat your banana bread.
WITH YOUR FIST.
YOU ARE WELCOME.
