I got this from a Garden Center Favorites cookbook quite a few years ago. It is THE BEST banana bread I have made--and I have tried a bazillion recipes. I keep coming back to this one!! I hope you like it.
This is a dense, moist loaf that is a great way to use up that extra pumpkin puree when you are tired of pumpkin pie.
We love it for breakfast, and my daughter likes to take a slice in her lunch.
It makes two loaves.
Hope you enjoy!
I found this recipe on a bag of Wal-mart sugar some time ago, and it was so simple, I had to try it. I have tried a zillion sugar cookie recipes, trying to get the soft cookie I like best. I think I have found the perfect sugar cookie. Please note that your cookie yield will vary, depending on what size cookie cutter you used. When I use a variety of sized Christmas cookie cutters, I normally get about 2-1/2 dozen.
Very basic and good because it can be eaten as is, dipped in seafood sauce, as an appy or added to other dishes, good in a plain spinach/mushroom/tomato salad with lemon/parmesan cheese/ balsamic vinegar / parsley dressing. From a Safeway advertisement 1996
This cake is low in fat and not too sweet. The glaze is optional, it takes a minute to prepare and adds only a few more calories. Great way to use up fresh plumbs in season. We like it best without the glaze, which also helps the diabetic.
I was by myself for supper tonight, was looking for something quick, light and tastty. This turned out much better than I expected, a kind of clean the fridge thing, so I had to write it down for future reference.
