Banana GingerBread!

      8 Comments on Banana GingerBread!

Happy Wednesday all you lovely people!


There’s some exciting things happening and lots of planning and figuring things out over here but nothing I can share yet, partly because it’s not ready yet.  But I have high hopes for what’s ahead in 2013 and I hope you all join me for the ride!

But since it’s Wednesday, that means it’s time for What I Ate Wednesday and instead of the usual sharing of my eats, I want to share a recipe today.  One that is so good and that I’m so proud of, that I don’t want it to lose any of it’s glory.  It deserves a post all it’s own.


And if you don’t believe me, just ask my dad how many times I’ve said “I love this! I’m so happy with this recipe!” as I sneak another bite of the delicious bread.


And if you still don’t believe me, what if I tell you that my dad, who isn’t a big fan of banana bread or gingerbread, called this “a great balance of the two flavors.”


Yes, that’s right – banana and gingerbread.  And it turned out even more amazing than my mind even thought it may.  Don’t wait, make this for your Christmas morning brunch or to eat!

    YES! To be honest, I like this even better than Pumpkin Gingerbread. Now, once I made DARK CHOCOLATE Banana Gingerbread…oh man…I need to get baking again. 🙂

    P.S. I’ll keep positive thoughts headed your way for your changes and exciting plans!
