Every now and then I get in the mood to bake. I happen to have several bananas that were about to go bad so I decided to whip up some banana bread. I’m not necessarily a banana bread lover, but when it comes to this recipe I am. Its SO good. I skip the nuts because my family just prefers it that way and so do I. But the buttermilk adds something delicious to this bread.
Livy girl and I have been spending a lot of time together since the boys have been in camp the last couple of weeks. So she was eager to help me this particular morning and pulled up a chair to help me with all the fun parts. You know, the pouring, and stirring and licking the bowl. Oh, and of course the first bite. :0)
Not only does the buttermilk give this bread some extra flavor but I also swear by King Authors Unbleached Flour. Don’t ask my why, it just works. I’ve also used the bread flour and it’s turned out ok, just more of a bread, if that makes sense. ha! I used this recipe from Shelley and I’ve also used this one and this one! I think each one is delicious and the mini pans make a difference! I only had the large ones so I added an extra 20 minutes to my baking time.
To make a simple hostess gift or just gifts for friends and neighbors, take a piece of white cardboard and cut it to 4 in by 8 in long. Then use these washi tape sheets and cut a piece 2.5 in by 8in. Then place the washi tape in the middle of the cardstock.
Next take your banana bread and wrap it up with the parchment paper. Think of wrapping a gift! It’s really that easy!
Next take your sleeve and wrap it around the bread and use the adhesive to secure it. Then tie a nice ribbon around it for a touch of pretty.
