I love baking at this time of year. And one of my favorite things to bake is banana bread. I spent all day in the backyard getting ready for winter. Cutting down all of my perennials and getting rid of all of my annuals. Such a different feeling then spring when everything is starting to grow. But in the end when everything is cut down and put away for the colder months the yard looks so nice too!
After I was done with all of that I came into the house and made chili mac for dinner (I will post a recipe for that on another day). And then I baked banana bread. The smell throughout the house is wonderful!
Here are some of the items I used to bake today (and lucky for us Williams-Sonoma is having their semi annual sale):
With all that said here is my recipe for Banana bread! I hope you enjoy it!
