Baking Tip:

  • Use a bundt pan if you don’t have a loaf pan.
  • For those picky eaters, mash the banana’s really well to avoid chunky pieces and avoid adding nuts.

Cooking tips for busy moms: 

  • Gather all the ingredients before hand and have them ready for use. If you have the time pre measure.
  • Take out all the cooking utensils you’ll be using. It’ll make things a lot easier and faster than searching around for something in the middle of having your hands dirty.
  • Clean as you go. Trust me it doesn’t take up much of your time to rinse and put in the dishwasher. It’s more overwhelming and takes up more of your time to do all the dishes at the end.

Eating Tips: 

  • Server warm right out of the over with a scoop of vanilla ice cream as dessert. You’re welcome.
  • Serve a fresh slice of the banana bread with a dollop of French Vanilla whip cream. Yum!
  • If you have left overs 2 days later make Crunchy French toast for breakfast served with slice banana’s. Mmmmmm….. (recipe linked below)
