Coco-Cinnamon Streusal Banana Chocolate-chip Cake/Bread/Cupcakes

I like to think that baking is like cycling. The way I can lose myself in baking seems very much like the way I cycle on the streets of Taiwan. Like cycling, baking elevates my happiness and eases my pain. For a moment, the deep concentration, the focus, the freedom makes everything go away, like entering a whole new dimension. Maybe that’s why I love baking so much. Seeing each ingredient contributing to the chemical reactions and eventually the deliciousness and beauty… ugly ingredients that have wound up in my hands turning out good and presentable. There’s sort of a new dimension in that.

Today, I made this simple yet delicious recipe I would love to make again and again. Its fat- free and perfect and beautiful.

I hope you’ll love it too.
