Let’s get a few things straight here. This is not a food blog. I am not a baker. Or a chef. Or even a photographer. I am obsessed with all of these things, however. & I have grand intentions of doing more of all of these things (sounds familiar doesn’t it…).
I’ve been eyeing this recipe for a couple of weeks & I finally had some time & the kitchen to myself. Anyone who knows me is probably laughing their head off that I made banana bread, (I hate bananas. The first time I ever peeled one was at my job at sbux) but I love Banana bread. & peanut butter. & especially bacon. How can you really go wrong?
I really don’t think you can with a recipe that starts by frying up some delicious bacon. I’m not gonna lie, when I had to put the mushy bananas into the batter, I thought about giving up on this recipe. There is nothing worse than the smell of bananas.
Thankfully, I pushed through and finished my banana bread. The only thing I’d change for next time is that I’d add a handful of peanut butter chips to the batter and I’d pay much more attention to my loaf once it hit 30 min. I’m not used to the fancy oven & I also forgot that altitude changes everything when it comes to baking and cooked it a little long (although I always thought you cooked things longer at altitude. Definite needs a re-try!)
I’m still really pleased with this loaf, despite the few hiccups. Mornings are a little bit better when I have a delicious piece of Bacon Peanut Butter Banana Bread waiting for me downstairs.
