Banana Bread

Now that black Friday is upon us, some people are out fighting the crowds for a great deal. Personally, I’ve never been one for shopping on black Friday. I’d rather just lounge around and enjoy my food hangover and cold turkey sandwiches.

It’s very common around our families to enjoy some foods that you can just graze on during black Friday. Banana bread, apple cake, monkey bread, or pumpkin bread are favorites of mine. Banana bread is such a classic that I feel like everyone has their own recipe. This one comes from Hubby’s Nana. Hubby grew up loving it so he loves when I make it for him.

Like most breads, this banana bread freezes wonderfully. I like to make this recipe into mini-loafs or muffins so I can freeze some. And, when blueberries are in season, I like to throw in a cup or so of blueberries as well.

    These look great! I love cranberries too… I don’t love white chocolate by itself, but I think it would be great mixed in with all these other flavor!

    cranberries and white chocolate do compliment one another .. i make a muffin using the jordan marsh blueberry muffin recipe in which i substitute fresh or frozen cranberries for the blueberries and i add white chocolate morsels.
