Banana Bread

banana bread
Prep Time: 15 minutes
Cook Time: 65-70 minutes

Grade: A

Make Again: Yes

Recipe Source: King Arthur's Flour

I really don't need another banana bread recipe. The ones I have tried are always great. But I recently started reading KA's baking blog (Baker's Banter) which had a recipe that was a little different (with the inclusion of honey and apricot jam.) And I also have just about 1000 frozen bananas waiting to be baked with, so I thought I would try this. I used half whole wheat flour which was good.

Like all quick breads this was easy, and it tasted good. I'm not sure which banana bread recipe I prefer of all the ones I've used, but I will probably use this one again, if I have the apricot jam on hand.

One thing that I liked about this bread, is that it cut very nicely. Sometimes I have some trouble with the bread falling apart when I try to make thin slices. This came out really clean and even.

Thanks PJ. I am loving your blog posts and I will be trying a lot more of those recipes. I just made the Magic in the Middle cookies and will post about them later. (Delicious!)
