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.

    I love that you were able to make this without artificial flavour or colour! So many ‘strawberry’ baked goods don’t even have real strawberries in them… thanks for sharing!!

      I try my hardest to make pink foods without any artificial crap in them. I was excited to find this recipe for a strawberry treat with all real ingredients!

    These look absolutely delicious, saving for summer! I had pink recipe in mind, but things have been so crazy here too that I haven’t had a chance to make it 🙁 I haven’t even baked an apple pie yet! Hopefully next weekend…

      I completely understand! I didn’t get all of my pink recipes posted this month and I haven’t made anything apple yet this year!!
