Mini Banana Berry Bread - Gav + Ro

I’ve recently taken on a new love for baking.  At first it was just fun cookies for Gav and I (and Ro when he’s older) to do for holidays.  Then, after making Ro’s first birthday smash cake, I decided that I wanted to keep doing it.  Banana bread has been my go to the past month or so and its so easy to make.  I often find that I buy too many bananas and the last few tend to go bad.  Those overripe bananas are PERFECT for banana bread!

So I found a simple recipe that I really love and we have banana bread every couple weeks or so.  Then I got a crazy idea to start experimenting with adding flavors.  The first one I tried was honey.  Towards the end of baking, I drizzled honey over the top and it gave the bread a delicious taste, sweetness, and a pretty glaze.   Today’s recipe was my second attempt at adding in a new flavor.

Ingredients: THIS banana bread recipe, 1 1/2 cups berries

1. Prepare the banana bread according to the recipe.  The recipe calls for baking soda but, after some research, I found that you can sub baking powder.  Just use 3 tsp powder per 1 tsp soda.

2. Measure out berries and blend until smooth.  I used frozen ones and let them thaw overnight in the refrigerator.

3. Mix in the berries and put into your pan.  This can be made as a loaf but I chose a mini bundt pan because everything is more fun when it’s mini!

4. Bake for 40-45 minutes or until toothpick or fork comes out clean.

These are great for a grab and go breakfast or even a quick, sweet treat.  Or, you can eat them like Gav does and have them with honey all over the top, yum!
