We have been trying to eat more fresh fruit lately; its good for you and it’s tasty so why not? We usually buy enough fruit to take a piece to work every day for a snack. Well, we had two extra bananas over the weekend so I decided to try my hand at baking fresh banana bread. I found a recipe titled ‘Quick Banana Bread’ on Tasty Kitchen and I figured any recipe with quick in the title was a good place to start! You can find this recipe online here.
The bread turned out very yummy! It was just enough banana flavor using two bananas. I added 1 tablespoon cinnamon and 1/2 tablespoon nutmeg as I don’t like any nuts in my banana bread (and we didn’t have any chocolate chips). I had to bake my bread for about 20 extra minutes as the middle was still a little gooey when I checked on it with a toothpick at the hour baking mark.
Here is a pic of how it turned out:
On a sidenote: we added a new decoration to our kitchen wall! My grandpa used to own a donut shop named Sno-White Donuts in Ohio. My Mom had a Sno-White poster for all of us girls and I finally had mine framed. I had a groupon for Beveled Edge so I took it in a few weeks ago. The staff was super friendly and very helpful! Since the posted is a bit retro and has color I knew I wanted a colored frame – not standard black or wooden. I decided on a greenish / tealish wood frame and it looks magnificent! 🙂
