A few weeks ago we adopted a baby boy. His name is Nicholas. He weighs 6.4 pounds. He is a bundle of energy and joy that has stolen our hearts. We couldn’t be happier with our decision to adopt him. He is fitting in wonderfully with our little family. His brothers, Otto and Jonas, have fallen in love with him too. We think they are thrilled to have a new play friend and cohort in crime.
Oh, and he is a Dachshund.
So, needless to say, that is why we haven’t posted anything for a couple of weeks. Life got busy around here.
Over the years, we have made probably a dozen different recipes of banana bread. This one is definitely the best one we have tried.
Bon Appétit published this recipe as their favorite so we thought we should give it a whirl.
Boy, we were glad we did.
Here’s the link to the recipe:
What Mikey Says:
Yum! This isn’t your mama’s banana bread, at least it isn’t my mama’s. Not saying that my mother's wasn’t good, in fact hers was pretty awesome. Always moist and flavorful. To me it seems like my mom only made banana bread at Christmas time. Banana bread and date nut bread, her two favorite breads at Christmas. Zucchini bread in the summer with that delightful cream cheese frosting. I remember helping my mother bake the breads at Christmas time. We would do the traditional loaves along with using steel vegetable cans to get the round bread affect. One time without thinking, we used a can that had ridges in it, bout damn near never got the bread out.
So, okay, I got off the subject of this Banana bread. When Edward said he was going to make it, I got really happy. Banana Bread! And it wasn’t even Christmas. I am so lucky. Now this bread, not sure exactly why its a bread, seems more like cake, but who really cares. The bread had a wonderful and intoxicating banana smell and flavor. It was moist and extremely tasty. It also had a secret ingredient. Chocolate, oh my, sorry mom! Who knew? I love chocolate and chocolate in anything only makes it better. Never tried chocolate with rutabaga, nothing can help that. I encourage you to try this recipe. You won’t be sorry.
