Bananas for the Banana Bread

I must admit I go bananas for banana bread. Strangely enough, I’m not a big fan of the banana itself as some people in my house are who seem to think it’s a banana a day that keeps the doctor away. Nevertheless, the consumption rate of bananas in our house never manages to keep up with the supply and as a result, we’re often left with speckled over ripe bananas hanging around the kitchen. It’s at this time I start getting the itch for banana bread.

Now I must admit my banana bread will probably not be the best you’ve ever had, in fact it’s not even the best I’ve ever had, but it’s free, the supply is steady and it’s mine. Gooey and chocked full of goodness I include whatever in my cupboard I can find, coconut, oatmeal, cranberries, walnuts, sometimes all at the same time. Overkill…most definitely. Muffin sized and sometimes too heavy to rise, I do realize that I have to eat them all most of the time. Seems the banana lovers in my house do not feel the same way about my banana bread. Still though you won’t hear me complain because didn’t you hear me say, I go bananas for banana bread.

  1. I don’t eat ripe bananas, but I love me some banana-nut muffins and bread. The best I’ve had was in a muffin shop in lower Manhattan near the Wall Street area. They specialized in every possible type of muffin you can conceive.

  2. I have a recipe for banana chocolate chip muffins that I love. So every time I have two bananas that are more ripe than my husband and I like to eat, I make banana muffins.
