Amazing Banana Bread
Some Saturday mornings if I am lucky and my kids do not have morning activities my husband is out in the kitchen making us breakfast, while I am in my comfy bed drinking the nice cup of coffee he has brought me… lucky I know! ( I do make him a hot breakfast all week long so it is fair for him to do this and if he wants to eat on the weekends it’s kind of what he has to do)
So, I love cookbooks, cooking shows, you name it I am drawn to them.
I love watching Trisha and the Pioneer Woman on Saturday mornings. This is where I discovered THE BEST BANANA BREAD… and my 7 year old agrees.
Trisha had an episode with her nieces and nephews and this recipe is her oldest niece’s favorite. I have made a lot of banana bread in my day, but what caught my interest on this one was the buttermilk.
I knew I had to try it so I waited for the bananas to be ready and not let the kids eat them all in the mean time.
I made it just as she did, however, I like walnuts in my banana bread, not pecans as per the recipe. I figured my kids wouldn’t like the nuts so I made one loaf without nuts and one loaf with walnuts. I like walnuts, but I have to say I liked it with out nuts all together. So, I would suggest taking a handful of walnuts and eating them while you are making the banana bread, but don’t put them in…just my opinion.
I also, didn’t make the chocolate sauce, I am sure it would be delicious but figured I didn’t need the extra calories.
Once you try it I am sure you will stick with this recipe. Let me know what you think.
You can find her recipe from the show here or below.
