Maple Banana Walnut Loaf

Where are all my banana bread lovers at!?

Random fun fact; I edit the Banana Bread feed over on thefeedfeed website. It’s pretty much one of my favourite things ever, because I LOVE banana bread. It’s kind of like one of those things that no matter how much I eat of it – I can never get sick of it.

I am always on the look out on Instagram for new and delicious banana bread recipes that I can add to the feed each month when I add my updates. Why am I telling you this? Well, because I just finished updating the feed the other day & banana bread has pretty much been the one and only thing on my mind ever since. Also, if you are a banana bread lover – much like myself – I think you would seriously enjoy the eye candy that this feed has to offer & you can check the feed out here

Caramelized Banana Bread

IMG_7202

My little brother recently came over for a visit and while searching in our freezer for a bucket of ice cream to dollop atop of his chocolate brownie he discovered my stash… My stash of over-ripe bananas that is! Jeezwhat did you think I meant?

He proceeded to make a disgusted face at the poor bananas, and then make fun of me for hoarding bananas like some sort of crazy banana woman. The sibling love is real… what can I say?

I think his look of disgust came from not from his discovery of the banana stash in the freezer, but from the fact that the bananas were very, very ripe… like I’m talking dark, dark brown … like way past just the spotty phase of banana ripeness. Oh who am I trying to impress? The bananas in my freezer are pretty much black – I’ll admit it looks super kinda weird, but black bananas really do make for the best banana bread. {don’t judge…}

“What do you even have those for!?” he asked me – with some serious disdain in his voice I might add. It’s okay – I’m used to the brotherly abuse. Besides, getting to see the look on his face when I explained to him that I would use those gross very ripe bananas to make a loaf of banana bread that I would then proceed to feed to him, was well worth enduring a little mocking from his end.

Needless to say he was completely outraged {and disgusted} at the very idea that I would dare to use “rotten” bananas to make him banana bread. Now because he is my baby brother, and has recently moved out from my parents nest {and is therefore now finding himself in the situation of learning how to feed himself properly} – I resisted the urge to punch him, and decided to instead take this as an opportunity to explain to him the way of the banana bread world.

Major big sister points earned for the week? I’m going to say yes 😀
