Not all recipes work. Not all recipes like to work. I keep reminding myself of this whenever I experiment.
I wanted to make a banana bread and add cheese to it. Why not? Put a dollop in the center and it would be delicious, right?
But I'm always up for an experiment. I used a basic gluten-free recipe I had used in the past and added, tweaked, and fiddled.
The cheese? A nice addition.
(*Note, if you can eat regular and not gluten-free breads/cakes, then you can make this with regular flours; omit the xanthan gum and use regular vanilla)
