Streusel Topped Banana Bread Cobbler

Streusel Topped Banana Bread Cobbler

I saw a photo of a Banana Bread Cobbler in an issue of Southern Living and immediately knew I had to give it a try, since I am a big fan of both cobblers and banana bread. As I read through the recipe, I realized it wasn’t what I expected it to be. I assumed it would be something along the lines of a bread ... Read More »

Hazelnut Banana Bread

Hazelnut Banana Bread

Walnuts are a very common inclusion in banana bread. It’s just the way things are. I’ve never been a big fan of banana walnut bread, however, because I think that all the walnuts really start to take away from the banana flavor at some point. Don’t get me wrong here: nuts can add a lot of richness, texture and flavor to a banana bread, it’s ... Read More »

Peanut Butter Banana Oatmeal Cookies

Peanut Butter Banana Oatmeal Cookies

Drop cookies, made of dough that is casually shaped into a ball and dropped onto a cookie sheet, are not always the most attention-getting cookies. I think that they’re probably the most often made type of cookie, since they are very quick and easy when compared to cut-out cookies, but they don’t hold a candle to the cutouts when it comes to presentation. That being ... Read More »

PB Loco Jungle Banana Peanut Butter, reviewed

If you go to a big supermarket, you’ll see two basic kinds of peanut butter: creamy and crunchy. If you’re lucky, you might also see a honey roasted flavor in the mix. But peanuts go with so many flavors that it actually seems a bit odd that there aren’t more flavored peanut butter options out there. Fortunately, however, a company called P.B. Loco makes more ...

Whole Grain Banana Cake

Whole Grain Banana Cake

What is the difference between banana bread and banana cake? The most obvious answer is frosting, but I would have to give a little nudge to shape, as well. A good banana bread should have a big banana flavor and should be moist, dense without being too heavy, and tender. A good banana cake should be the same way because those are all features that ...

Banana Peanut Butter Oatmeal Muffins

Banana bread is a classic that I will always keep coming back to. It’s easy, it uses up those pesky overripe bananas, and it can be made in any number of variations. This is something of a variation on it, although I opted for a muffin form rather than a bread. These Banana Peanut Butter Oatmeal Muffins were inspired by a description of some muffins ...

Banana Cinnamon Friands

Banana Cinnamon Friands

Friands are small cakes that are very popular in Australian bakeries and cafes. They’re not exclusive to Auz. and NZ, but the term does seem to be used exclusively there. They are actually a riff off of a french financier, a small pastry made with almond flour and lots of butter. The french cakes tend to be very tender, but friands are also very moist, ...

Banana Pancakes

Banana Pancakes, full-size

“Maybe we could sleep in; I’ll make you banana pancakes; Pretend like it’s the weekend now. We could pretend it all the time.” –Jack Johnson, Banana Pancakes It never hurts to have a little inspiration for a recipe and the Jack Johnson song “Banana Pancakes” is what prompted me to make a batch of pancakes for myself. It’s a cute song and, if you listen ... Read More »
