I love this kitchen towel from Portugal featuring The Lisbon Tram Car.
The railway system called; Rede de eléctricos de Lisboa, serves the municipality of Lisbon, Portugal.
In operation since 1873, it presently comprises five urban lines, and is primarily a tourist attraction.
Here’s a video below of the Lisbon Tram car, and a site to learn more about the history of tram cars in Lisbon.
Now that we’ve learned a little bit of the culture. Here’s the recipe.
Apple & Banana Bread
2 or 3 small ripe bananas (mashed)1 small apple cored and finely chopped
2 1/2 cups flour
3/4 cup brown sugar
1/4 cup reg sugar
1 stick margarine
1 tsp vanilla
1 tsp baking powder
1 tsp baking soda
1/2 tsp salt
1 tsp vanilla
1 cup of milk
1 package of any breakfast instant oatmeal (optional)
1/2 cup chopped walnuts (optional)
Heat oven to 350. In a large bowl mix the melted butter with the sugars until creamy. Add eggs and beat for 2 minutes.
Mix all the dry ingredients in a bowl. Mix the apple, banana, milk and the vanilla in a small bowl.
Add 1/2 of the day ingredients, then 1/2 of the banana mix into the eggs and butter.
Incorporate the remaining dry and wet ingredients into the batter and mix on low for about 2 minutes.
Grease 2 small loaf pans. Pour the batter into the pans and cook at 350 for 35 – 45 minutes or until golden brown.
