I realize this was supposed to mainly be a fashion blog… but lately I have been a better cooker than dresser. Plus I have so many yummy recipes I want to share.
There is one thing you should know about me before you start reading my recipes and notice a common trend. I LOVE bananas, always have. I think it is their neutral taste. Perfect for the morning. Perfect for a snack. Perfect for dessert when you are tricking yourself into thinking you are eating a huge mountain of ice cream and half of it is cut up bananas (I highly recommend trying this). It is the perfect food.
So clearly one of a banana lovers favorite foods would be… banana bread
Therefore I am on a quest. A quest to find the best banana bread recipe out there. I usually make my mothers banana bread (recipe to come in the near future) but I decided I want to explore around… to make sure im not missing out on any amazing recipes! The first recipe I tackled was from the lovely blog of SmittenKitchen
And what makes banana bread even more delicious? Chocolate chips! I added a couple handfuls.
3 to 4 ripe bananas, smashed
1/3 cup melted salted butter
3/4 to 1 cup light brown sugar
1 egg, beaten
1 teaspoon vanilla
1 tablespoon bourbon (I did not use the burbon … but hey if you are feeling risky go for it!)
1 teaspoon baking soda
Pinch of salt
1 teaspoon cinnamon
1/2 teaspoon nutmeg
Pinch of ground cloves
1 1/2 cup of flour
