My  recipe of the day is apple butter banana bread, a recipe I have been  using  for years. The  apple  butter  imparts a lot  of  great flavor  as well as helping  it to  be just a bit more moist. The bananas on  top of that really seal  the  deal.

I like making  my  own  apple butter to use in this but any  will do. I do  use a no-sugar-added apple  butter in  this  recipe. If  you use an apple  butter made  with sugar, add about half the sugar for the recipe and taste it  after you  add the apple butter and  then adjust it to the full  amount  to make sure it  is not too  sweet for you  using that.

The  bananas have been  piling up  around here. I don’t  always  get to  the bananas on time  as it is. So  when they get  ultra-ripe, I peel them and put them in a zippy and toss in the freezer. I’ll bake with them  later.

Although I have tried the tip about putting  frozen bananas in the food processor to  make a banana ice cream. It  works. All it needs are the bananas and nothing else. Although I  imagine you  could  add other stuff.

But anyway, my  daughter had to move in with us over a divorce during covid and she likes the green bananas (very  green). Apparently they are very low in sugar  and  very healthy.   Which means once they turn normal yellow they are  past eating date for her. Ha!

Lots of bananas for me to  figure out,  but hey.  At least  she is  finally interested in  something healthy. Maybe she  will rub off on  me as my eating  became  more  junk-filled to  deal with our politically charge and  covid  filled  world. Plus we are still out  of  work.

Deep breath. We can  do  this. One step  at a time. Soon  the  sun  will shine. I have  to believe that. I am  a cynical  optimist. Ha! We’ll get there. In the meantime, let’s bake, shall we?

  1. Hi! This is kind of off topic but I need some help from an established blog.
    Is it hard to set up your own blog? I’m not very techincal but
    I can figure things out pretty quick. I’m thinking about
    creating my own but I’m not sure where to begin. Do
    you have any ideas or suggestions? Thank you

    • There are lots of groups both on Facebook and Google Plus which had tons of people that can offer advice across all platforms. It’s a great place to start. Just look up the blogger groups.
      Good luck!

  2. Delicious! I was really looking forward to making this bread and I’m so glad I did. The addition of the apple butter really makes this bread moist and it imparts a nice flavor along with the bananas. This is a great idea to use the apple butter in place of oil and a great way to use up ripe bananas. Will definitely make this yummy bread again soon.
