SMS: Mom's Apple Banana Bread
This week’s Sweet Melissa Sundays treat was Mom’s Apple Banana Bread. Judging from the recent recipe choices, I think everyone is ready for fall: first the Applesauce Spice Bars, now this apple banana bread, my boyfriend’s mom even served an apple pie at lunch today. Anyway, I love banana bread and I also love apple desserts, so the odds for this treat being a big hit for me seemed pretty high; I made a full recipe of it in four mini-pans in anticipation of several mornings of yummy bread. Unfortunately, I was not fond of this bread and Mr. Penpen wasn’t either. The bread had very prominent (and wonderful) apple-spice aroma and that was the initial flavor I tasted, then a bit of an aftertaste of banana, which seemed a little intrusive to my palate. I should have just eaten the brown sugar apples with yogurt for breakfast, since they were amazing on their own.
Many thanks to Joy of Hot Oven, Warm Heart for giving me the opportunity to try a new banana bread recipe, click HERE on her site for the recipe. I also have to thank Joy for kindly emailing me a recipe for Pupcakes (the name of her blog is very appropriate she is very warm and friendly, not to mention everything she makes looks fabulous). To see the pupcakes and enter my very first give-away, stop by tomorrow (there will be a real cake, too). And be sure to check the SMS blogroll to see what the other bakers thought of this recipe; judging from the Problems & Questions section, I have the heretical opinion of this treat.
