Flour's Famous Banana Bread

It was Christmas and then it was done. It is crazy that Christmas came and went. We are officially three days away from 2015. 

We had a fun but packed few days in Maine. They left me exhausted.  And now we have piles of presents to put away. A good problem if I do say so myself. To help motivate me a bit I made some banana bread. I am a huge fan of banana bread but this recipe is extra special. 

It is straight from Flour Bakery in Boston. It is one of their most famous baked goods. I get to visit whenever I am in town for MIT.  #perkoftravelingforwork

This banana bread recipe is amazing. I can see why in the cookbook it is called Flour's Famous Banana Bread.  Maybe it is the oil?  I am not sure but this by far the BEST banana bread I have ever made/tasted/eaten.  It is super moist and packed with banana flavor. Sweet but not too sweet. 

This recipe might just have to be my new go to banana bread recipe.  Sorry mom!

  1. it sounds like you had a great Christmas! (Mine was busy, too) This banana bread looks so simple and lovely!

  2. My MIL makes the best banana bread, and even though she's given me the recipe, it's still not as good as hers. I scored on my stores dollar rack over the weekend and got 15 bananas for $1 - need to make some bread!

  3. Looks great!! Wishing all the best to you this New Year! May 2015 be a wonderful year for you. :)
