Delicious Banana Bread

After blissfully cold weather and winter storm winds last night, we woke up to a beautiful and peaceful morning.  Getting much less snow than anticipated, it was just the perfect setting to enjoy a warm cup of coffee and a slice or two of an old time favorite, banana bread.  I took advantage of this stunning winters day to snuggle on my favorite chair and enjoy some much needed me time.
 
Coffee time is just not complete without a supple and good flavored bread. Don't you agree??  So I am sharing this delicious recipe by Readable Eatables which I used to bake this yummy bread last night.  It makes a super moist and fluffy banana bread. Coffee a real experience with this one!
 
Thank you for visiting.
