Banana Bread

Doesn’t that look good? Well, I have the recipe, as promised. Created this one myself and everyone loved it! Yay! I tried to make it nutritious as well as delicious. Anyhow, to the recipe we go………..:)

Banana BreadPreheat oven 350 degrees, grease 2 – 9x5x3 bread pans

1 Cup (2 sticks) butter at room temp.

2 1/3 C. Sugar……you can use half brown sugar for a little more flavor.

4 Eggs

Cream butter and sugar till light & fluffy. Add eggs one at a time, beating well after each addition.

1/3 Cup crushed Pineapple (don’t drain)

3 Cups mashed Bananas (approx. 6 large bananas)

2 tsp Vanilla

Blend in Pineapple, Bananas & Vanilla…then, in a separate bowl mix the next 5 ingredients.

2 Cups Flour (all-purpose)

1 1/2 Cups Whole Wheat Flour

1/2 Cup Flax Seed

2 tsp Baking Soda (I only used 1 tsp but didn’t realize it till afterwards…lol. Kids got me distracted and I used the 1/2 tsp twice. It was a little heavy but still tasted great.)

1 tsp Salt

After all dry ingredients are stirred well, add to creamed mixture, mixing well.

1 Cup chopped Nuts (walnuts or pecans…I use pecans)

1 Cup miniature Chocolate Chips

Fold in Nuts and Chocolate Chips. Pour mixture into pans and bake 60 – 75 minutes or till tester comes out clean. (I use a toothpick) cool in pan 10 minutes, then pop out and finish cooling on wire rack.



Cheesy Bread

* 1/2 cup butter, melted
* 1 teaspoon garlic powder
* 1 round loaf sourdough bread (1 pound)
* 1 pound Monterey Jack cheese, thinly sliced

* In a small bowl, combine butter and garlic powder; set aside. Cut bread diagonally into 1-in. slices to within 1/2 in. of bottom of loaf. Repeat cuts in opposite direction. Arrange cheese slices in cuts..make sure your slices are very thin. It will melt better. Drizzle butter mixture over bread.
* Wrap loaf in foil; place on a baking sheet. Bake at 350° for 15 minutes. Uncover; bake 10 minutes longer or until cheese is melted.

If you want a little spice..use pepper jack cheese. It is soooo yummy. The kids said they didn’t like it as well with the spicy cheese. So…just make it to fit you! (This bread is also excellent without any cheese.)

Wednesday’s Menu




Cinna-sticks are easily made with a roll of refrigerated pizza dough. Roll out, spread on melted butter and sprinkle with cinnamon-sugar blend. Cut into strips and cook. Serve with icing of choice!

Wednesdays are busy for us. Quick and easy is the way I like it! 🙂
