I’m always searching for that “perfect banana bread recipe that will make me want to come back for seconds”. And now I found it. I came up with this recipe by combining some of the components of Arlene’s Pumpkin Bread with a banana bread recipe I’ve made before (with good but not amazing results). Voila! Perfect banana bread that had me coming back for seconds.
Thanksgiving dessert. Um…YES PLEASE. Oddly enough, I do not like pie. Let me rephrase that—I do not like pie crust. Even if you remove pies from the equation though, Thanksgiving always offers yummy desserts. Since I’m traveling 3½ hours to my brother’s house for the holiday, I am bringing a few desserts that travel well—chocolate chip cookies, cinnamon snaps and Arlene’s Pumpkin Bread.
A few weeks ago, my father-in-law asked me “Have you ever made cinnamon rolls?” He’s obviously on to me–he knows if he suggests a dessert, I’ll suddenly feel an overwhelming urge to make it. I’ve never made cinnamon rolls. But I love them. What’s not to love? Warm, soft, sweet, covered in icing…it’s the perfect comfort food for a brisk fall morning (or anytime!). We were having dinner at my in-laws’ house the following week, and I was bringing dessert. Why not give cinnamon rolls a try?
