I love to bake a yummy, indulgent breakfast on Saturday mornings. During the week Matt is busy with work and can’t always join us for breakfast and typically Sunday mornings are a bit hurried before church-so Saturday is the best time to have a proper family breakfast. Some of our favorites are cinnamon rolls, cowboy coffee cake, pancakes, egg casserole and of course this banana bread. It is delicious! Our family likes moist, soft and chewy textured breads and cookies-if you are the same! This bread is for you!
Weston and Reagan love to pull up chairs or sit on the counter to help me out. This morning Weston was all about helping and driving his truck in the flour, typical country boy!
We like to use Mexican vanilla in our cooking, Matt’s grandparents pick it up for us when they head down South-it adds a one of a kind flavor!
The bread itself is very easy to make and I have not had any issues with the loaf turning out perfect every time. The kids and I like to have the bread warm… with butter, honey or a swirl of syrup. My husband like it plain!
Tips for ripe bananas:
-Store ripe bananas in freezer until ready to use, take out night before
-You can quickly ripen bananas by putting them in the oven at 240 for 15-20 minutes
Banana bread is great for making ahead and freezing the loaf, home delivery to friends or family and it lasts for 3-4 days (you can eat it for several breakfasts) Let me know when you make a loaf for yourself, I would love to hear how it turns out! I hope your kids love it as much as mine!
