The smell of Banana Bread.....

Today was my day to bring snacks to our Tues. AM ladies Bible study (we are doing Beth Moore's Daniel study & it's awesome!), so I mixed up this banana bread last night & put it in the oven this morning to bake, so that it would be hot & fresh. This is a great recipe & is actually lower in fat, so I thought I'd share the recipe for those who enjoy baking. I got this recipe from a really sweet Jewish lady in Atlanta, so I have to give her credit...it's a wonderful banana bread & this is the only one I make now. Try it...I promise you'll love it. This is what's left & it won't last long with my hubby around!

Low-Fat Banana Bread

1 1/2 cup all-purpose flour

1 cup sugar

1/2 tsp. salt

1 tsp. baking soda

1/4 cup Canola oil

1/2 cup applesauce

3 very ripe bananas, mashed

2 large eggs, slightly beaten

1 tsp. vanilla

1/2 cup chopped pecans

Preheat oven to 350*. Grease & flour 9x5 loaf pan. In large bowl, with fork, mix first 4 dry ingredients. In separate bowl, mash bananas, add the eggs, vanilla, canola oil, & applesauce & mix well. Add banana mixture & pecans to dry ingredients. Stir until blended (don't beat). Pour into loaf pan & bake for 55 to 60 min. Cool on rack for 10 minutes before removing.

Here's my bunny recipe box that I decoupaged a few years ago. It holds all my recipes & looks good on the counter top too. I found this box at a yardsale for, I think $1.00 & it was fun making it pretty.

Oh, banana bread, yum yum.
Yes, it is time for the bunny plates, too. I got mine out on Sunday! I still love them.

I remember when I first found that bunny image and posted for just you, and it spread like wild fire! It showed up on a dozen posts or other sites.
But now I think it is royalty free so I don't feel bad about it.

Of course our projects were my favorites. :)

Thank you all for stopping by...I love new visitors/friends! Hope you all try the banana bread...it's really delish.

Donna, you were very kind to share that bunny image with me & I remember it did get a lot of attention way back when. Do you still have your box & is it still out being used? Yours was very pretty too!

Pat, so nice to have you stop by too!

Kathy, hello & welcome...please drop by anytime!

I just finished up the Daniel study with my Bible study group! It is so wonderful!!!! I hope you enjoy as much as I did.

Christy said...

Rhoda..you may want to ask someone else about the border thing. I figured mine out but I think it's the long and hard way. I've seen so many others that have the wider larger borders and I'm not sure how they did it. Cherry has a nice one, maybe we can find out from her how she did it. I'll go ask her.

You are a girl after my own heart! I love finding things at yardsales and thrift stores with good bones and then breathing a new life into them. That box is gorgeous - what a great job you did!

The banana bread sounds divine - yum!

Hi Rhoda.......Just popped in to see what you have been up to & wow!,you have been busy! I loved the older home pics.....here, we have three left standing. On is that same style - italianate. It was built in 1850's. There is a book about it I read & it was soooo good I couldn't put it down. LOL!
My family settled here back in the 1800's so it is all interesting to me also.
The banana bread sounds yummy - thanks for passing it on!
Your roses were beautiful - Johnny bought me some too.....we are lucky!
Bonnie PS Love the bunny box!
