From time to time, my guys ask me to buy bananas. They never seem to get eaten, they brown and soften, and I end up baking with them. This morning I threw together a double batch of this Banana Cinnamon Chip Bread, and it is outstanding. Slices are rapidly disappearing, and I'm starting to wonder if I'm being played when they ask me to buy bananas. I can see them conspiring- "if we don't eat them, Mom will bake something delicious with them!" Ok, maybe not :)
I have noted that I got this recipe via Foodgawker from the Harried Housewife, but the link no longer works and a search of the site doesn't yield any results.
