Lots of Bananas Bread

This was one of those weeks where the phrase “I need to bake” really comes into play. Working in a high school, you would think that the last couple of weeks would be very exciting. Wrong. As a guidance counselor, I think it is one of the busiest, most stressful times of the year. All I could think about was wanting to get home and bake something. Why? Baking helps me relax and (almost) forget about my worries.  It helps me to completely focus on something else and know that I can have a (hopefully!) delicious outcome.

I have definitely made my share of banana breads/desserts over the past year, including Carrot Pineapple Banana Bread, Zucchini Banana Bread, Pumpkin Banana Bread, Banana Zucchini Pudding Cake, and Apple and Banana Cake.  For some reason I don’t get sick of them. It’s really the only way I am going to eat bananas and I love that my son Luke can’t get enough of it.

I wanted to give this Six Banana Banana Bread by Averie Cooks a try.  And exactly 6 bananas is what I needed.

It also took over an hour to bake; close to about 75 minutes. I did have to put foil over the top so it wouldn’t burn.

This banana bread didn’t disappoint. The amount of bananas give it great flavor and keeps it moist, not dry at all.

And making this bread did make me feel a bit better after my day.  Give this a try.  You can find the recipe for Six Banana Banana Bread here!

On a side note, Averie Sunshine of Averie Cooks just came out with a cookbook this week!

If you like peanut butter, you need to get this book.  I can’t wait to start baking my way through!
