What did I think of immediately? Banana bread, of course!
I’m letting you in on how my brain works to creatively make up recipes in your kitchen, as I tell you how I like to substitute ingredients, how to, and why I do what I do.
This recipe was winged on camera with bits and pieces I had in my fridge & pantry today to create a unique quick bread recipe that you can easily make yourself too. Today’s recipe is loosely based upon the measurements in my Whole Wheat Strawberry Banana Quick Bread Recipe.
Try experimenting yourself, like I do…it’s actually a lot of fun once you get the hang of things, and will become second nature to you at some point.
