My daughter, Mel, and niece, Mandy, are both amazing cooks.
So, when either one of them calls or stops over with a new recipe that they have tried and loved, I’m always excited to test it in my own kitchen.
The other night it was Mel’s turn to entice me into making a new recipe she’d found for cinnamon-honey butter. She said it was absolutely delicious on top of the banana bread she’d made.
She was right.
( You can find the recipe for the butter here!)
And here is my recipe for Banana Bread.
Enjoy them both!
- 1 cup white sugar
- 1/2 cup shortening
- 2 eggs
- 2 tablespoons milk
- 2 cups flour
- 1 tsp baking soda
- pinch of salt
- 2-3 ripe bananas (mashed)
- Nuts (optional)
- Preheat oven to 350. Cream sugar and shortening in a large mixing bowl. Add eggs and milk. Beat well. Add flour, soda and salt. Stir. Fold in bananas. Place in two small loaf pans or one large. Bake for 45-50 minutes, or until toothpick comes out clean. Let cool. Remove from pans and let cool completely.
Wishing you all a FANTASTIC Friday!
