I feel as if I’m walking in a permanent brain fog at the moment. I can’t remember anything and I feel so tired this week. Last week was half term week but I spent most of it catching up. Even then, I didn’t achieve everything I needed to get done. One of these was to get the blog updated and sorted out. But that hasn’t happened and I also noticed this post was still in draft!
When you think of Banana Bread or Banana Loaf, lots of people associate it with lockdown baking! Who did bake Banana Bread during lockdown? I looked back at my photos stored on my phone to see if I did. Surprisingly, I only made it twice! We always seem to have loads of bananas left or run out of them in our house.
I love baking banana loaf and it’s something I’ve made a lot of over the years as it was handy for the children to have in their lunchboxes or to bake as a donation for a local coffee morning or school cake stall.
Here are a few banana loaves I’ve baked in the past, which have already featured on my blog. Have a look at these!
The Great British Bake Off- Blueberry Banana Bread
Amazing Cakes #15: Banana And Chocolate Chip Loaf
A Bake For All Seasons #3: Banana and Peanut Butter Loaf
Banana Bread doesn’t have to be boring. I add in berries, such as blueberries. Or they work well with walnuts or pecans. Dried fruit like cranberries work well but my absolute favourite combination is to have chocolate chips with the bananas.
I am not baking banana bread this week, sadly. Even though it is half term week for me, I have a very busy few days ahead. I’m catching up with friends and family but I’m looking forward to getting back in the kitchen to bake again at the weekend.
