Once again, thanks to Pinterest, I found a recipe that I just had to make. Last week, I pinned this recipe from a blog called Lovin From the Oven. How fun is that name?! Anyway, I saw that it was going to be cold and rainy yesterday, so I decided that while Molly took her morning nap, Caroline and I would bake this yummy banana bread...I also thought it would be a good time to get in Caroline's ear about moving from her crib to her big girl bed. ;)
Per usual, Caroline enjoyed mixing, pouring, stirring, and tasting!
And...the seal of approval!
I don't know if it's the magic of photoshop editing, or my baking, but Lovin' From the Oven's Banana Bread looks prettier then mine! Regardless though, this is a simple recipe, and oh so good! Think Duncan Hines Cinnamon Swirl Muffins and Banana Bread mixed into one. The Cinnamon/Sugar gives the top of the bread a crunch that was unexpected to me, but I loved it. Then again, I love anything sweet.
*I used 3 bananas, but I will use 4 next time. The recipe calls for 1.5 cups AP flour. I used half AP, half whole wheat because I like to believe that makes it okay to eat 3 pieces for breakfast. I don't believe it altered the taste one bit.
Molly woke up just in time for a taste test time, unfortunately she was only tasting her Banana Puffs today!
