Anyone Up For A Piece Of Banana Bread

Anyone up for some good old fashion banana bread especially with chocolate chips scattered within the tasty treat, well I sure was today. Don't you love the smell of banana bread baking in the oven its such a lovely intoxicating smell that reminds you about how you have to appreciate the good things in life and the genuine art all around us. Such as something as simple as banana bread baking in an oven to cheer some one up.

When banana bread came to mind I pictured right away a recipe in my book "The Big Book Of Baking" that I knew would be really quick to make so I could have that delightful and delicious treat in my hands to devour.The recipe was a simple plain banana bread, but I knew myself that chocolate chips were a must in this recipe. Banana bread could pretty much have anything added to it  such as nuts,dry fruits, or something you like.

This banana breads texture is soft,moist, and chewy along with its flavor combination of banana,cinnamon, and chocolate.Altogether you have a warm, moist and sweet treat for yourself.

  1. The banana bread looks great! I always found it great for breakfast and/or with a coffee. My favorite recipe for banana bread comes from mom. She gave it to me a long time ago, i'll bring over a copy sometime :)

    Do you have plans set for your easter baking? Should I bring over my little guy to help you? He says "Hi Aunty!"
