Lots of Bananas...
I have to admit that I have a long list of recipes bookmarked and printed that I really want to try out. I am such a recipe collector. In fact it is kind of a sickness really. This is my first step in therapy...I think. I imagine if I actually put the recipes to use, then I have a good reason to have them stacked everywhere, right? Well, one of the recipes that I have had hanging around for awhile is this one from Everybody Likes Sandwiches. I normally have bananas hanging around, but they mostly go in the illustrators peanut butter banana smoothies in the morning. This time, I happened to have quite a few that were calling to be put to a different use! This bread/cake smells so good as it bakes! I love the cinnamon and sugar topping! I have discovered, however, that our family is not a fan of chocolate chips in our breads. So, next time I will make it without, but I assure you...there will be a next time!
