Fresh Baked (Banana) Bread


I walked by our fruit bowl yesterday and noticed 3 bananas which were past their prime. So, when life throws you bad bananas...make homemade banana bread! My house smelled so great just prior to bed last night. I made the banana bread using the Martha Stewart recipe (sans walnuts...DH request) and it is so much easier and better than recipes I have tried in the past. It all came together very quickly too! Prep time was maybe 15 minutes and bake time was 1 hour. Highly recommend this recipe. Plus, if you have a loaf style molded pan like above...it makes it even prettier. :) Now...banana bread for breakfast, desert, bedtime snack....

OMG!!! I made banana bread and muffins yesterday!!!! My house smelled so good too! I made up my own recipe though, wanting to make it a little more healthy, and no nuts, using wheat flour and adding a little brown sugar - it is sooo good. My kids are eating up the muffins anytime they want a snack. I also have a trick with those 'old' bananas... I stick them in the freezer until I can use them for bread! They turn black, but they taste great and keep for a long time in there! I love your molded pan! So pretty!

That's probably the prettiest loaf I've ever seen. I made cookies last night and I could still smell them when I woke up in the middle of the night!
