Coca Cola Banana Bread

My sister-in-law, Beth, and her family stayed with us over the holidays. A good time was had by all, and it was sad to see them go.  However, they did leave a parting gift — some over-ripe bananas and a six pack of regular Coca Cola. I rarely have both of those ingredients in the […]

Beth’s Banana Bread

by on April 28, 2014 · 0 comments

I baked this as a last minute treat for my sister-in-law’s family to take with them on an airplane ride back home. When they reached their, Beth emailed asking for the recipe. Since then I’ve given her several, but this is the one she likes best, therefore I’ve named it after her. I like baking […]

Sour Cream Banana Bread

by on February 14, 2014 · 3 comments


This isn’t a very Valentine’s Dayish recipe, but if you happen to have some bread flour and some over-rip bananas, I think you’ll appreciate it.  It’s a banana bread recipe with sour cream for tenderness and bread flour for structure. Of course you can always stick with all-purpose flour, but I recently discovered that bread […]

Banana Muffins Made with Mayonnaise

Sir Kensington's Mayonnaise

Today’s muffins are made with Sir Kensington’s, a fancy mayonnaise made with cage free eggs, sunflower oil and citrus. To be honest, it’s really too exquisite to use in baking, but I received a free sample for review so I didn’t mind testing it in muffins. If you happen upon it at Whole Foods, you’ll […]

Honey Graham Banana Bread

Here’s something you didn’t know you needed: another variation on banana bread! This one’s especially worth saving if you’re interested in seeing how graham cracker crumbs work as a substitute for flour in banana bread. Or some of the flour, anyway. In the past I’ve tried cake and muffin recipes where crumbs take the place […]

Fairmont Hotel Banana Bread

Just when you think you’ve tried every banana bread recipe in the book, along comes this one from The Fairmont Hotel. Carolyn from Canada has been making it for years, and wanted to share it because it’s a little bit different. What’s unique about this banana bread is that it’s baked at a very low […]

Banana bread squares made in a mini bar pan

A few people have emailed saying they’re recovering from the holidays and aren’t doing much baking this month. I wish I was in that category, but every time I walk through the kitchen I’m compelled to pull out the ingredients and make something. Dinner? No. Sweets and treats? Yes! So I’m trying to find slightly […]

banana bran bread cut

I wasn’t planning on starting the year with a healthy recipe, but this one was so tempting and perfect for these dark, drizzly days we’ve been having that I just had to try it. It’s a high fiber, sweet tasting quick bread from Camilla Saulsbury’s excellent book, 5 Easy Steps to Healthy Cooking: 500 Recipes […]
