Banana Bread

June 13th, 2010

I was clearing the kitchen and refrigerator of the usual over due foods, like wilted arugula, week old indian take-out, a yogurt hidden in the back that had expired in 2009, then I came across some very over ripe bananas that I almost threw away until I remembered I had recently been reminded that they are an excellent excuse for making Banana Bread.

The recipe I chose was Banana Bread from Baking Illustrated, however my daughters are not fans of walnuts so I used some dried cranberries instead and added some grated orange zest. The bread was not too dense like some I’ve had before, it was soft and moist with plenty of flavor. This is a great recipe.
