September 08, 2008



i LOVE banana bread...probably my favorite...also grew up eating mom's zuchini bread.
i have about 12 rotten bananas in my freezer just waiting for cool weather and the need for warm comfort...
have a nice day Alicia....


now off to buy rotten bananas!


You are so right about banana bread Alicia. It's the ultimate comfort food! Now you have me hungry for some....


Great writing, Alicia! I thoroughly enjoyed that banana bit, bits of banana, bites of banana, mmmmmm - bits of banana bites ....

ooo I love banana bread! I'm so craving it now!!


I love banana bread too, so I am going to try your recipe. Can't wait to order one of your new ornament kits!


I love banana bread, too, and have missed it since we've started shopping for produce at the farmer's bananas there. Maybe at Christmas we'll treat ourselves to some bananas for banana bread...with chocolate chips, of course!


I love that plate your 'nanna bread is on, too.


There are no nuts in this bread? Is that even legal?? Must try very soon.

Also, do you eat your banana bread with cream cheese on it? That's the way my aunt always gave it to us when she would take us on hikes when I was little, and it is now an absolute MUST if I have banana bread in the house.


I love banana bread too! And am always looking for a good recipe. Can't wait to try this one out! yummm

I guess I'll be heading to the market for bananas now!


Ha! roll model! not sure if that was on purpose but either way, so funny!!!


Guess what I'll be baking this week. Looks scrummy.

I love that this recipe has no nuts! I will use it for sure, and I won't feel bad that I did not add the nuts since it calls for none! Nuts in baked good is not one of my favorite things.


This really has 1/4 cup of baking powder?

Do you have any idea how much I love YOUR recipes? And I can't find a good BB recipe - now, I can't wait for my bananas to go bad. Thanks sweets!

Yummy! Banana bread! How funny you should talk about it. My husband and I are heading over to eastern WA later this week to stay in his parents vacation house, something we do every fall. I always make a couple of loaves of banana bread to take with us. I love having something homemade for breakfast while away from home.

And yeah, might want to check that amount of baking powder! Is it really 1/4 CUP of baking powder? :-)

Alicia P.

OOOOPS! Well, I used 1/4 c. Because I am a lunatic. But really the recipe calls for 1 T. + 1 t. (I doubled Nigella's to make 2 loaves.) Thanks for the catch guys -- though I can't vouch for the corrected version since I did dump a 1/4 c. into mine. And lived to tell the tale. Though 1/4 c. of baking powder seems like it would be dangerous. . . . SORRY about that!

I have a pumpkin bread recipe that I swear by, to the point of making all other breads based on it - just replace the pumpkin with any pureed fruit. But this recipe *might* just make me cheat on my pumpkin recipe. Looks delicious. And I like that it has no oil.


Yum! Banana bread recipe sounds great! And I am soooo excited about the ornaments!! Yippee!


The price seems perfect for the kit. I think it will make a lovely school auction donation.


One of my favorite things to do for breakfast with banana bread is to make french toast --- you should try it, it's yummy.
Also, when camping, we fry it in the frying pan so it gets warm and crispy on the outside. Dee-lish.


I love banana bread and I have been looking for a good receipe. I can't wait to try it. Bananas are on the list! Thanks


It looks scrumptious, and I still have not found my ideal banana bread recipe, so I am eager to try this one. *Oh the toil! Banana bread research...* lol


I love this quote from Nigella about banana bread " fills the kitchen with an aromatic fug which is the natural atmospheric setting for the domestic goddess" Actually, I just love Nigella.

If you doubled the recipe, 1/4 cup isn't THAT much baking powder. 1/4 cup = 4 tablespoons. 2 teaspoons is 2/3 a tablespoon therefore, 1 tablespoon + 1 teaspoon doubled is nearly 2 and 2/3 tablespoons and well, never mind. It looks really good is all.
