I bought some bananas when my parents came to visit me last month, but I forgot to force, I mean, set the bananas out as a snack for them. I like bananas but only when they are still plenty green. These buggers were ripe. So what do you do when life gives you ripe bananas? You let them ripen further so you can make banana bread.
I may dislike ripe bananas but I love banana bread. It is yummy. Granted, I’ve rarely meet a bread that I didn’t love. This particular recipe caught my eye because it included instant pudding, which is an interesting addition.
The banana bread turned out so moist and delicious; I loved it. Later, I did notice that in my haste to get this in the oven, so it could get in my tummy asap, I forgot to make the topping. Oops. I can say that it tastes great without the topping, but next time I will try the topping because it sounds delicious. 🙂
The past week has been relatively cool here, but the heat wave is coming back, unfortunately. It just makes me cranky. I would like to start working on some Fall and holiday recipes, but when it’s super hot outside, all I want is ice cream.
Plus, it’s really hard to get in the holiday mood when it’s 90+ degrees outside. Oh, the weather outside is indeed frightful. Frightfully HOT! Yes, I know – #FirstWorldProblems.
If you’re actually enjoying Fall-like temperatures where you live then I am jealous and this would make a nice treat with a glass of apple cider. And if you’re some place HOT like me, bookmark this recipe for whenever it finally cools down, like in January.
