Hey y’all…there’s just something about the arrival of Fall that makes me want to bake bread. It’s like my nesting instincts kick-in and I want to be warm and cozy with a warm slice of bread and a hot cup of coffee. My go-to recipes include English Muffin Bread and Pumpkin Bread. Today’s recipe came from a craving and having some over-ripe bananas that needed to be used.
This is my tried and true recipe for Banana Bread.
I grind cinnamon sticks for the freshest flavor, but you absolutely don’t need to do that.
My favorite part about baking is how the fragrance fills the house. One of the sweetest things my husband says to me when I bake is “I smell love in the oven”. That’s actually a true statement. I love to cook and bake and I do it from my heart. It makes me feel good to make other people feel good through my cooking.
Here it is, fresh out of the oven. You’re supposed to let this bread cool completely before cutting. HA…that never happens. Honey Bee and I are way too impatient for that and we each cut a slice as soon as it came out of the oven…
…and slathered on some honey butter.
I love this recipe as it is not too sweet or doughy.
Doesn’t this look delicious?
Trust me…it was!
Banana bread is so universal. It tastes great for breakfast, as a snack or even as dessert. You can eat it plain or add butter or cream cheese as a topping. What are your go-to comfort food recipes in the Fall? We would love for you to share it with us!
