So now that Levi has been promoted and is a busy adult with many important things to do it is time for me to spread my wings. That’s right. I am going to talk to other people!!! I just felt the universal shudder of introverts, did you feel it?
What better way to have some grown up girl bonding time than to bake up a delicious loaf of banana bread! I invited one of my good friends from work over and we had a really nice time baking and talking! Yay!
**Update: I no longer talk to other people outside of work…LOL….oh well. Whatcha gonna do? Make more banana bread! That’s what!
If you like to try different things in your banana bread try out this recipe from a few months ago! Strawberry Almond Banana Bread
So grab your girlfriend and get baking!
- 4 Bananas, very ripe and chilled
- ⅓ cup Butter, melted
- ¼ cup Sugar
- ¼ cup Brown sugar
- 1 Egg, lightly beaten
- 1 tsp Vanilla Extract
- 1/2 tsp Almond Extract
- 1 tsp Baking Soda
- Pinch of salt
- 1 1/2 cup All-purpose flour
- 1/2 cup Frozen Blueberries
Preheat oven to 350.
In a medium mixing bowl mash up the bananas with a fork.
Once the bananas are creamy mix in the butter. Add the sugars, egg, vanilla and almond extracts. Once these are completely mixed then sprinkle the salt and baking soda on top. Add the flour and mix it all in. Add the blueberries. Lightly fold into the batter.
Bake for 60 minutes, until a toothpick comes out clean.
Let it cool for about 5 minutes and then run a knife around the edge and flip it upside down and give it a little wiggle until the loaf comes out of the pan.
Can’t you just smell that delicious baked blueberry smell? It’s the best!
