And rounding out our Banana Bread blow-out this week - STRAWBERRY BANANA BREAD!
What comes first - the fresh, sweet strawberries or the flavorful bananas? This is a combination that is just too good to be true! And Mama had a bumper crop of bananas and strawberries - so this is a good thing!
This is our family favorite basic Banana Bread recipe - only better! So incredibly sweet, tender, flavorful and super-moist!
Why mess with perfection? I'm sure some of you wonder why you would change ANYTHING about the world's best Banana Bread, but if it involved adding some delicious mini-chocolate chips, could I change your mind?
Whenever I'm making Banana Bread, one of the kiddos will ALWAYS ask me if I'm going to make Chocolate Chip Banana Bread too? Kinda the same conversation we have whenever I make their favorite homemade Buttermilk Pancakes. So over the years it has just gotten to be standard operating procedure that I make one batch of plain and simple Banana Bread, and one batch of Chocolate Chip Banana Bread. It keeps the natives from getting restless! And because it's one of my personal favorites, who am I to argue with them?
I remember making breakfast in bed for my Mom when I was just a little girl. There was the year I made fried eggs and toast (all by myself) and delivered them to her bedside - LOADED with salt and pepper. She hugged and kissed me, and thanked me profusely, and more importantly, ate every bite of what had to be an absolutely miserable breakfast. Now that I'm a mom, I appreciate even more all of the sacrifices she made for me thru the years, always with a smile!
She would have LOVED these fresh and tasty Breakfast Yogurt & Fresh Fruit Pies - probably as much as I would have loved making them for her!
