Gluten-Free, Dairy-Free Easy Banana Bread

I imagine most households have a favorite, go-to banana bread recipe and when I was still baking with regular wheat flour, I had several that I love to make to use up all those overripe bananas. I’m so glad to discover that by going gluten-free and dairy-free, I won’t be deprived of enjoying a slice […]

Instead, it’s a moist and tender banana cake infused with a lovely coffee flavor – perfect for anytime snack or as a light dessert after a meal.

Banana-Nut Muffins

It’s always a wonderful feeling when a simple recipe yields fantastic results. I recently purchased a used Southern Living cookbook titled “The Ultimate Southern Living Cookbook” for two bucks. :) I told Keith I couldn’t not buy the book. I mean it’s Southern Living’s ultimate cookbook…it says so in the title. Lol, that got a […]

Banana Oatmeal Muffins

Feels like forever since I last posted something! “Has she fallen off the face of the earth?” some of you might wonder (I wonder about that often myself). However, the truth is nowhere near as dramatic. :) I’ve just been feeling sooooo… exhausted lately, and the weather is certainly not helping! I’m so sick of winter…..can’t […]

Banana Chiffon Cake

I think we’ve discovered another family favorite today. :D I first saw a banana chiffon cake recipe a few years ago but I never did get around to trying it. Then recently, I came across another banana chiffon recipe, this time in Martha Stewart’s new cake book – Martha Stewart’s Cakes. It renewed my interest once again and I […]

Banana-Nut Bread

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! (I love it […]

Chocolate-Cherry Banana Bread

Note: Photos were updated in April 2020. October 2012: I just found out from Keith that the Chocolate-Cherry Banana Bread is now his favorite banana bread. :D This past Tuesday, I decided it was time to use the over-ripe bananas that I’ve been staring at for the past week. Instead of using them to make […]

Banana Crunch Cake

This recipe, from the King Arthur Flour Whole Grain Baking book, showcases a delicious crunchy/chewy oats topping which contrasts nicely with the tender and moist banana cake. Although the cake turns out sturdier than its white flour counterpart, it is still light in texture – just how a cake should be. One of the reasons […]

Banana-Raisin Whole Wheat Bread

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. […]
