Steamed Chocolate Banana Bread

With soaring temperatures, we avoid cooking indoors whenever possible. This essentially means no baking in the oven for the summer! As an alternative, I decided to get my “baked” goods fix through steaming (on our grill’s side burner) instead. Since bananas are always plentiful in our home, there would always be ripe bananas waiting to […]

I have to admit that ever since I’ve made our new favorite banana bread last fall, I’ve not been too motivated to try any new banana bread recipe. :D However, I’ve recently decided to participate in an on-going Bake-Along event that is co-organized by Zoe (of Bake for Happy Kids), and their current Bake-Along recipe just happened to be…banana bread!

The recipe – Kelsey’s Favorite Cranberry Bread may be short and simple but contains enough action […]

However, with plenty of zucchini from our garden this summer, I finally decided to try the zucchini bread recipe […]

We always seem to have ripe bananas laying around in the kitchen and what better way to use them than to make banana bread. We eat banana bread a lot in this household. It makes a quick and delicious on-the-go breakfast or lunch, as well as a great snack for those hunger pangs in-between meals. […]
