Banana bread

Here is a banana bread recipe I have wanted to share, more cake-like than bread, a perfect way to use ripe bananas. Add in chocolate chips or chopped nuts of your choice…

Baking feels more enjoyable in the fall, with the weather finally on the cool side. Sipping a chai pumpkin latte while trying a new fall inspired recipe is my new favorite thing to do.

Is there anything special you bake for fall?
