We had an abundance of going-bad bananas this weekend, so I baked up a batch of banana bread on Sunday (which seems to be the one and only day I ever bake banana bread). I used Mark Bittman's recipe, which is transcribed here on East Village Kitchen, and hails from the good ol' HTCE.
The recipe is fantastic -- I made a few changes, like no coconut (just 'cause we had none) and doing half-brown sugar, half-white -- but it's a real keeper. Even on day three (today) it made for an excellent breakfast.
The truly evil part of the recipe occurs when Mark Bittman oh-so-casually drops in that he loves banana bread toasted the next day...with peanut butter.
Goodness gracious - how did this not occur before?
Best (suspiciously dessert-esque) lunch ever.
We're keeping it cozy + quiet around here right now...trying to stay home a bit more after a bunch of gallivanting! I'm waist-deep in a new book-related project, and tidying up the house/my studio, preparing for Fall, etc. I love this time of year...mostly because my favorite months are just around the corner, and I can see them very well from where I'm sitting.
Here's to late-Summer!
