Felt mean in class tonight


Gold Member
A lady had made a loaf of banana bread for the raffle with the recipe next to it. As I was looking at the recipe I noticed she hadn't synned the 4 bananas in the recipe, so I mentioned it to her and she looked so crestfallen. I felt like a mean teacher telling a kid that their hard work was all wrong!!!!!

But I couldn't not mention it could I?!

You definitely did the right thing and with only four syns it's still a yummy treat. It would have been worse if she had used something that made it hugely 'off limits' on a normal day. :)

You most definitely did the right thing. It's one thing to choose not to syn cooked or mashed bananas, but it's always best to know.
4.5 syns per banana soon adds up the syns!!!


Always comes back to MMs!

I'd have said something, she may not have known, or even thought about it and it would raise the point for other people about cooking/mashing fruit and having to syn it

what else did she use in the loaf please even at 18 syns it sounds yummy , I'm sure my kids would do 3/4 of it in lol :)

It was basically a normal banana bread with dried fruit, nuts and glace cherries added to it - added up to 27.5 syns without the bananas, so 45.5 with them.

you definately did the best thing by telling her. at the end of the day thats one of the reasons for the classes, so that we can share our ideas and gain information. The lady may be having cooked fruit in lots of other things and therefore slowing down her losses. you never know your piece of info may boost her loss next week :)


Just doing it this time
