Best Banana Bread

I realize I just posted a banana bread recipe at the end of January. You know, I loved that recipe and I added chocolate chips and it was delicious. Then I stumbled across a recipe (via pinterest) from America's Test Kitchen on Food 4 Wibowo. The most exciting thing about this recipe is not one, two, three, four, but FIVE bananas. It was love at first sight. Seriously.

Oh and the other interesting thing about this recipe is you nuke the bananas and drain the liquids into a bowl. Then simmer the liquids to concentrate the flavors. I am positive this is the secret to the beauty of this bread and I almost didn't make it because it meant a few extra dirty dishes. I am so glad I made it anyway.

This is the loaf fresh out of the oven.

A few slices calling my name. Also, check out my new spring table cloth. I found this puppy on half off at Target. Holla. I love it!

The top is perfect and crunchy-crusty.

This bread will not disappoint.

The only change I made is to not include sliced bananas on the top because I didn't think we needed it.

Check out the recipe over on Food 4 Wibowo.

    1. Thanks for your interest! I'm going to pop over at queen of savings!

  2. What an interesting idea to concentrate the banana liquids! It seems like I've made a million banana muffins in the last several years, and I never would have thought to do that.

    Great job, and thanks for linking up with the Winter Pinterest Challenge!
