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!
