As we have all learned, there’s a national day or month for just about every different food on the face of the earth.
There’s even a National Don’t Cry Over Spilled Milk Day and a National Crab-Stuffed Flounder Day.
Those are silly, but tomorrow’s day is one that I can wrap my head around: it’s National Banana Bread Day.
I absolutely love a good slice of banana bread. There’s nothing better with a hot mug of coffee or tea in the morning than a thick slice slathered with butter and microwaved for just a few seconds to get all warm and melty.
I’ve been guilty in the past of simply mixing overripe bananas into a banana bread mix. It’s not as good as made-from-scratch banana bread, but it’s a quick and easy way to avoid letting the fruit go to waste just because it’s too black for raw consumption.
I found a perfectly delicious-looking recipe for homemade banana bread on Simply Recipes. I’m going to attach the recipe after the jump.
Does anyone out there have a killer banana bread recipe? And what’s your vote — nuts or no nuts?
