Who doesn’t love a nice warm slice of Banana Bread? Well if you like Banana Bread you will most definitely LOVE this Banana Bread recipe! Whether I’m making this when hosting brunch with the girls and just for a nice weekend family breakfast, everyone always loves it!
This weekend I was in the mood to bake (as usual) and decided I wanted to make Banana Bread, and alas…I have overly ripened bananas sitting on my counter! Perfect! I made a few loaves of my favorite banana bread, it’s moist, delicious and always a big hit. And today is your lucky day because you’re getting not one, but two recipes in today’s post! My family was the recipient of some scrumptious Banana Bread French Toast for breakfast this weekend.
I’ve always liked to cook from scratch and because of that, my children have become accustomed to it. My husband loves his Hostess and Little Debbie snack cakes and can never understand why the kids don’t eat them, they are just used to having REAL ingredient in their baked goods. I put this delicious French Toast on the table in front of my 7 year old and his response was “Oh good, this is fresh whipped cream!” Sometimes I think I’m doing whoever my boys marry a huge disservice! Their expectations are getting a little high when it comes to mealtime. I kind of feel bad for whoever she is…that’s lie, no I don’t! Ha!
I like to serve this up with my Homemade Breakfast Sausage and One Potato, Two Potato Hash!
TIP: Make a few loaves of Banana Bread and freeze the extra ones for later use to make delicious French Toast on a whim!
