Hi Everyone Falls Here! With Halloween just around the corner.
and the weather so beautiful and breezy, even though we are going to miss summer:(
So you know what that means MORE BAKING!!
for me. I like to do my Baking in the morning's Since I am a early bird. When I send the kids of too school, and get done with the chores around the house, I roll up my sleeves and get to work..
Today I made loads of Banana Nut, and Banana Bread..
The recipe is so easy, and like I said in one of my post before, this recipe was also taught to me by a very good friend and neighbor Kay..
In order to achieve perfect results you do need to have measuring spoons and measuring cups.
For The Fullest Banana Flavor, Select Bananas that are beginning to turn dark.

and Banana Nut bread in just minutes..
I know you can just go to the store and by any typical bread, but its that special feeling you have inside, when you bake it yourself and knowing that its homemade all the ingredients are fresh, and up to date.
So lets get started

1/4 teaspoon ground cinnamon
1 cup mashed bananas ( 3 medium)

1/8 teaspoon salt
1/4 cup cooking oil

6. Cool in pan on a wire rack for 15 min.
slowly, and gently loosen ends of cake and remove loaf from pan.
