food-a-licious

Yeah, baby - that 'mood' says 'Happy'.

Few things evoke my happiness, but food is one of them.

That being said, when I was making dinner tonight (nothing special....cheese enchiladas and refried beans), I noticed some bananas that were a day away from the garbage bin.  I thought 'Hmmm.....banana bread?'.  I LOVE me a good banana bread....but finding a really good recipe has so far eluded me.  (Sorry, Grandma ~ RIP)

I decided to see what my recipe website of choice had to offer.  (that would be allrecipes.com)

Banana Banana Bread, it was called.  I looked.  Hmm....more than the usual amount of bananas that most recipes call for.... ehhhh why not.....

So......I made it.

Goodness Gracious.

It was insanely good.

I looked at some of the comments and noticed some of them added nuts, and some of them added extra brown sugar on top....so I did that, as well.  I'm telling you.....you must make this bread.  You must.

I made mine in a bundt pan because I didn't have a loaf pan (!)....which I personally think made it even better.... although it takes less time to bake (10 minutes less to be exact....)

Here it is:

The Most Delicious Banana Banana Bread Ever

........that's not really the name of it, but that's what I call it...

oh....and after you make it....when it's still warm.....smear on a big glob of cold butter.  Oh, baby.  Food Porn.

Make.  This.  Bread.

Seriously.

  2. Whenever I make banana bread, I use my Amish cookbook recipe. Nom nom nom. I can tell that you enjoyed your banana bread! One thing we discovered in cooking class in New Orleans was Paul Prudhomme's Sweetie Magic. It's a mixture of cinnamon and sugar, and great for sprinkling on top of quick breads. Yum!

  6. Although I love bananas I don't like them when they're over-ripe.  I've never liked banana bread but made one last week when I had a couple of bananas that were too old for me, I found a recipe with dates in (I LOVE dates!) but no, I still don't like banana bread!  I have a wonderful recipe for Matrimonial Cake that has lots of dates in it, it's my very favourite of all time....

  7. I'm the same way about food lol ~ I luuuuuuuuuuuuuuv it!! cooking/baking etc. is a huge destresser for me, I might not eat it sometimes after I've made it but the process itself most of the time takes the edge off of stress.  I do wish I could eat mexican food though but I can't :( it makes me sicker than a dog and I don't know why exactly.  Will be checking out your banana bread recipe though :)  I love reading your entries, they always make me laugh/chuckle/smile.  Thanks for being "meh"  lol.  Blessings** Teresa

  10. I love banana bread.  When I make mine I always grease the loaf pan and then sprinkle white sugar on the bottom and then when I pour the batter in I sprinkle more white sugar on the top of the batter.  Gives it a nice sweet crunchy topping and bottom when it is done.
