I’ve never made – or eaten – a blintz loaf before: blintzes yes, but not blintz loaf. It seemed to me a cake recipe with the additional ingredients I used to use as filling in my blintzes. It’s a while since I made blintzes: several decades in fact! This Banana Blintz Loaf was very quick to make, had a beautifully moist texture and tasted scrumptious. In view of NoraMarie’s comment about it being bland, I used 11/2 teaspoons of lemon juice. And I also added 1/4 cup of ground almonds and added slivered almonds on top of the loaf before it went in the oven. Thanks for sharing this recipe, PanNan, and I hope that you like it when you try it.
We had company drop in so the pictures were rushed.But I made it. Its a very bland loaf but we are used to sweeter loafs.The texture was excellent but felt it was missing some flavor.Everyone had a piece.
