The 12 Treats of Christmas - 1st

"On the first day of Christmas, the treat lovingly baked by me...

was banana bread, size mini!"

It does not look mini here, but it is!! This yummy banana bread recipe comes from Elise at Simply Recipes.  So easy, one bowl, no mixer.  Delicious every time!!  I use King Arthur White Whole Wheat Flour and Turbinado sugar, which gives the banana bread an extra touch of flavor.  Super!!!

Banana Bread Recipe

The pan is a four-loaf mini loaf stoneware pan by Pampered Chef.  The recipe above makes all four mini loaves.  You can find it here: Pampered Chef Mini Loaf Pan

The beauty of these mini loaves? You can eat a whole one and not feel guilty, as a whole mini-loaf is 1/4 of  a normal banana bread. They are also perfect gift sized - wrap up in something pretty!!  The loaves freeze well too, so you can make in advance.  You need to adjust baking time from the recipe, don't forget!

Come back tomorrow to see the 2nd Treat of Christmas!  Kathy
