Made the perfect Sunday treat last weekend – banana bread (with chocolate and nuts of course)! No working person has time to make this during the week, so keep this as a weekend treat.

As a sidenote, I’ve been working hard on my photography… what do you think? :)

  3. In a small mixing bowl, mash the bananas with a fork. Mix in the milk, cinnamon, and vanilla.
  4. In another medium bowl, mix the flour, baking powder, baking soda and salt.
  5. Pour the banana mixture into the sugar/butter/egg mixture. Add flour mixture in 3-4 parts, only adding more when the flour disappears.
