Hi there Ucreate Readers! I am so excited to be over here today with Kari!! I’m Ashley, and I blog over at Cherished Bliss.
I’m a stay at home mom who has 2 beautiful little children, and I love them OH so much!! My family is the inspiration for my blog and I couldn’t be happier! Over on my blog you will find anything from crafty projects, sewing, home decor, and more! I love coffee, so grab a cup and come say HI, I love meeting new people!
Today I’m going to share with you a super yummy recipe for Banana Bread. If you ask my husband this is the gift he wants all year round ; )
You’re going to love it! Let’s get started!
I started off with my sister’s recipe for Pumpkin Bread (quite delicious as well!) and made a few changes
- ½ cup butter (softened)
- ½ cup white sugar
- ½ cup brown sugar
- 2 eggs
- 1 tsp vanilla
- 1 cup mashed bananas (the more ripe the better)
- ½ tsp cinnamon
- ½ tsp baking soda
- ½ tsp salt
- ½ cup nonfat plain Greek yogurt
- 1½ cup all purpose flour
- Cream butter and sugar.
- Add remaining ingredients and mix until smooth.
- Pour into a greased and floured loaf pan.
- Bake at 350 for 1 hour or until done.
Optional: Feel free to add your favorite nuts to this recipe. I have a weird thing with nuts in my food so I left them out. ; )
Once you follow the recipe and make those changes and you will have one super delicious loaf of banana bread!
Once it was done and cooled I wrapped it up to get ready to give it away.
First I took a paper bag (free, YES!) and cut it with scissors to make the edges look torn, tied some baker’s twine around it and stuck in a cute little tag on it.
Now it’s ready to giveaway! yippeeeee!
Let’s be honest though… this exact loaf didn’t get gifted, I mead I had to photograph it right? So we kinda ate it…. all of it. Looks like I’ll be making some more of these!
It was such a pleasure being here today! Here are a few other Christmas Ideas you can find over on the ol blog!
