Banana Bread is nostalgically nourishing and delicious! Here are 2 of our takes on this classic comfort food!
Each time we had an instance of uncertain times in our home, we make our homemade banana bread. It so versatile that if that’s the only thing we had to eat, we could manage through breakfast, lunch, and dinner and be ok. It’s just the perfect comfort food.
If we have friends bringing home new babies, we make banana bread. If we have a sick loved one…banana bread. Someone’s recovering from surgery…yup we drop off a loaf. It’s simple enough and could easily be a simple meal for someone who didn’t have the energy or couldn’t make themselves a meal.
If the past few weeks have been anything, they’ve been uncertain and trying. With quarantine, our daily lives have been tipped upside down and we are all wondering around our homes like, “what’s next?”. We had an abundance of ripe bananas from a recent banana-binge trip to the grocery store and I knew just what to do.
A couple loaves of fresh banana bread doesn’t last long here, whether it is made for breakfast or a late afternoon snack, but man did the kitchen smell good!
Since we are all limited to how often we go out in quarantine, making banana bread or bars is a synch since it requires basic ingredients and very little of them.
Tip: amp up this recipe and make chocolate chip banana bread or blueberry banana bread
We had so many ripe bananas we decided to treat our farm crew with some delicious homemade frosted banana bars too!
Cream Cheese Frosting
“Can banana bread be frozen?” Absolutely! An added plus of this recipe is you can simply freeze a loaf or two for later. I will let the loaf cool and wrap in tin foil, then a gallon freezer bag. Label it and set it in the freezer. You never know when a friend could use something homemade ;)!
