Let's just call this Banana bread Wednesday.
That is identical to the recipe I used although
mine is in a cookbook. 
I was SO glad I had old bananas today. 
That's a simple pleasure, right? 
I have a couple of my "elderlies" that
I need to take care of tomorrow. 
They'll be happy for some warm Banana bread.
I made a second pan of BB with mini-semi-sweet-morsels
inside, for my boys. 

So, in comments today, I want to hear your
happy BB memories...let 'em out! 
Did your mom make it? Have any of you
never had BB?

Oh Phyllis, those "elderlies" are in for a treat! I can smell the BB from here! Don't I wish, because just the smell of BB could put a smile on my face!
When I moved away from home my moms BB recipe is one of the ones I took with me! I do love to add the morsels and walnuts! Gosh, I really want to make some NOW!<3
Great job on your barn sale! Love, the rooster painting. ; )

I come from a long line of banana bread Baker's! I can only imagine how nice your home smelled! Yummy!

I would love a slice of banana bread with some coffee, please! Can I come over and act as an "elderlie" to get a piece??

My younger brother loves banana bread and learned my mom's recipe, and now he makes a better banana bread than she does... but, you can't tell her I told you... ;)

My friend, Veronica, and I love to go to a cafe in Albuquerque that serves banana bread. They slice it, then toast it and serve it with cinnamon butter. She and I talk about so many things over a slice of BB with coffee, so whenever I smell the BB, it reminds me of my dear good friend and our heart-to-hearts.

Hello Phyllis:
Actually, we have seldom eaten Banana Bread. Perhaps, although of course it exists, it is not a very English thing and therefore not widely made. In Hungary we suspect it is unheard of.

Oh num! I love baking and eating BB. You are right, over ripe bananas are a simple pleasure. It's either waste them (horror!) or make BB:>) It's always a treat to share too!

see you there! said...

I like banana bread with some walnuts in it. I like banana's just as they are too so sometimes it is hard for me to wait to have enough really ripe ones on hand to make the bread.

You obviously spoil your friends and family.

I'd like to share a piece of the ones with semi sweet morsels, please! I love BB sliced and toasted with butter! Oh, I'm so hungry!

You know, my mom never really made banana bread - she made pumpkin bread and I will miss it (and her) SO much at Christmas time this year.

Banana bread is big around my house though. I accuse my husband of NOT eating bananas sometimes just so they end up in bread. I use the recipe on the side of the Gold Medal flour bag and it is SO yummy! Yours looks great, and I'm sure the recipients appreciated it. :o)

Banana Bread and I are friends from way back. I always use frozen bananas to make mine and add an extra banana to the recipe. Adding chocolate chips makes it even better! Love on those elderlies!
