There appears to be several versions of the recipe for the Blueberry Banana Loaf floating around, including one that omits a line of instruction. The recipe in the official CWA Program Book is complete, and that book can be downloaded from the MSG website. The confusion appears to be in step one. The complete, correct instruction (as shown in the program book) is:
Heat oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit. Grease and flour bottoms only of three 6”x3 ½” inch loaf pans. In large bowl, combine sugar and oil; beat well. Add bananas, applesauce, vanilla and eggs; blend well.
(This was edited a bit for clarity.) The program book also includes complete rules for entering, including contest deadline.
Officers and Directors, please note: This might be a good opportunity to remind everyone that posting your program book, contest rules, etc. on the website can avoid a lot of confusion and make the information widely available. Do not assume I have your information.. Program books or lengthy instructions and forms are best sent electronically (a PDF file is perfect) as an attachment to an email addressed to webmastermainestategrangeorg (webmastermainestategrangeorg) . If you have submitted your program books and other information to the site, please send any changes and corrections when you make them. We can save time and avoid confusion and frustration with a program of active communication.
