I like me some bananas!

Hump day!  The week is half over.  I always feel like when the weekend is really, really fun, then the work week goes so slowly.   It is even worse when you have big plans coming up.  I cannot wait till Friday.  To help move things along a bit more quickly last night I entertained myself by making some banana bread.

I searched the internet for a good recipe and found several with nutella and chocolate chips.  Yum huh?  After much debate though I decided to go with my tried and true recipe from Cooking Down East.  Nothing like dirty pages to tell you where a good recipe falls in a cookbook.

Banana Bread
Adapted from Cooking Down East
Makes one medium loaf

1/4 C butter, softened
1 tsp salt
3/4 C sugar
2 eggs
1 1/2 cup whole wheat flour
1 tsp soda
2 Tbsp cinnamon
3 bananas, beaten creamy

1.  Preheat oven to 350 degrees.

2. Cream butter and then add salt and sugar. 

3. Add eggs one at a time, beating well after each addition. 

4.  Sift flour with soda and cinnamon.  Mash bananas with a fork and beat until light. 

5.  Add to butter mixture alternating between the dry ingredients and bananas.

6.  Turn into greased loaf pan.

7.  Bake for 1 hour in oven.

For breakfast I topped my with peanut butter and a sliced banana.  Love it!  After a sampling last night and breakfast this morning the loaf is already half gone. 


  1. Your breakfast looks delicious! The banana bread sounds great and if the pages are that dirty, you know its good!

  2. A wonderful, hearty banana bread. I like the high dose of cinnamon...very tasty.

  3. Mmm, banana bread is always a good idea. This looks like one delicious loaf. I'd like to invite you to stop by and link it up to Sweets for a Saturday #10.
