I am so excited the weekend is finally here! And I have time to cook! When I came home from work, the fragrance of our week old bananas hit my nose, and I decided to make banana nut bread. To me, banana nut bread is comfort food. You can have a slice for breakfast, with vanilla ice cream as dessert, or a midnight snack. Banana nut bread tastes most delicious right out of the oven. If baked correctly, it should be moist with a hint of sweetness. Many years ago, I discovered the secret to retaining moisture in the banana bread is cream cheese. Who would have thought?! Well, whatever way you like your banana nut bread, enjoy!
