Going Nuts for Banana Bread!

I got to say homemade banana bread is amazing. I have been obsessed with this recipe for a few weeks now.

Ingredients

  • 1 Stick (1/2 Cup) Butter
  • 3 Large Ripe Bananas
  • 2 Large Eggs
  • 1 teaspoon Vanilla Extract
  • 2 Cups All Purpose Flour
  • 1 Cup Granulated Sugar
  • 1 teaspoon Baking Soda
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon cinnamon

Instructions

  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Spray a loaf pan (I use the disposable metal ones) with non-stick cooking spray.
  • Add the stick of butter to a large bowl and microwave for 1 minute, or until melted. If you can believe it… I don’t have a microwave so I improvise with a pot of hot water. BE CAREFUL the bowl is hot 🔥!
  • Add the bananas to the same bowl and mash with a fork. I used a mixer attachment and it mashed perfectly.
  • Add the vanilla extract and egg to the bowl and use the same fork to mash and stir until no yellow streaks of egg remain.
  • In a second large bowl whisk together the flour, sugar, baking soda, salt, and cinnamon.
  • Add the dry ingredients to the wet ingredients and mix together with a spatula just until combined.
  • I also add copped walnuts.
  • Pour the batter into prepared loaf pans and bake for 45-55 minutes until a toothpick inserted in the center of the bread comes out clean.

I usually check them about 35mins in and put tinfoil on top if they need a few mins more.

I top my pieces off with apple butter and my hubby likes crunchy peanut butter.

Bon Appetite!

Life During COVID

It has been strange times living through the COVID pandemic. I went on maternity leave November 2019 and had a healthy baby boy. Maternity leave ended 8 weeks later, and I was back to work in Jan 2020. News started hitting that COVID was sweeping the globe. It didn’t hit me that it was a life changing event until my work told me I had to stay home. It was bitter sweet. I got to spend time with my new baby but life was changing by the second. Mask mandates, stay at home orders… it was surreal. It still is.. a year later we are still cautious wearing masks, hand sanitizing every second, staying 6ft apart of another. Hope has regenerated with vaccinations coming out but still life is anything but normal. I emptied my bag for work… everything is normal besides the disposable mask, cloth mask, mask guard, and sanitizer wipes. Thank goodness we have been healthy the past year.

I wear my masks every time I leave the house and use hand sanitizer religiously. Besides work, I only leave the house to go grocery shopping or doctor appointments. Thank goodness for Twitch Streaming and Netflix!

Life will return to normal, it will just take time… stay safe everyone! 😷
