Say what?? I want to eat this all day. No seriously. I almost did yesterday.

Alright. I need to put something out there. Right on the table. This is for my readers that have read my blog for a while now and know my complete life story. First, thank you for sticking with me. You’re the best. You’ve been with me through the ups and downs. So a while back, you read about my break up. Well, months later, that lovely man and I rekindled our happiness and have been together for sometime now. Annnnnd we moved in together. First time moving in with a guy. Woooo weeee. I decided to keep some of my relationship stuff to myself since there are so many variables when it comes to creating a happy relationship. Sometimes it’s just better to keep that stuff between you and your partner, instead of the world wide web. BUT since I hadn’t updated anyone and there were some questions in my last blog post, there ya go. He’s just wonderful. We’ve had our ups and downs, but I couldn’t be happier. Taking a new journey together has been awesome.

Sorry this post is coming at you a little late. Let me explain myself. So yesterday, lovely Sunday, I woke up and made a smoothie. Fact. Then worked out. Then the true fun began. I went couch shopping. Ugh. Not only is furniture shopping an extremely awful task, but on a Sunday when all hell breaks loose in every parking lot, it’s an even worse task. Ok, I shouldn’t really complain. It wasn’t that terrible. It just gets pretty unfun when you’re hungry and have to pee. So we looked for couches, found one we liked, couldn’t decide if we should get it, then went to another furniture store. Which was even more unfun because it was way more expensive. But the parking lot was better, so that was a positive.

Yes, I understand unfun is not a word. If you were thinking that in your head, you’re unfun.

So after the boyfriend and I found out we couldn’t come to a conclusion, we headed to brunch. Around 3. I was starving. Hangry. After a couple mimosas, I felt decent for them not being as strong as needed on a sunny Sunday. But I knew I wanted to make this recipe. So we bolted home for him to take an afternoon snooze and for me to bake. And I baked. And failed. I put this recipe into a too small baking dish and it pretty much went every where. All over the oven. I mean…I still ate the edible parts. But the non edibles turned into smoke inside the oven. So I then cleaned the oven and couched it for a while in frustration. But I couldn’t go down that easy, so I made it again last night and just stared at it since I couldn’t eat it until I took pictures until today. Which leads me to right now. This very moment. I just took pictures of this beauty. Now go make it. It’s amazing.

    I doubled the recipe and cooked it in a bundt pan. It turned out great – my family loved it! I wish I could upload the picture, it looked so good.

    Have made this banana bread almost every week during quarantine, and it’s usually devoured by 5 people within an hour. 🙂 I usually half the amount of sweetener (using 2 tbsp maple syrup) and it is the most lovely, spongy, sweet-but-not-too-sweet treat. Thank you so much!

      so glad you love the recipe, Julia!!

    This cake rocks! I’ve made it several times before and just now made it again. It reminds me more of a custard consistency, but I really like that. Before I made it today, I reminded my daughter about the custard banana bread, and she knew just what I was talking about. Then both of us HAD to have it today!

    A little late in the comments but this is literally the best banana bread have made it at least 100 times. Usually make 2 at a time friends ask for it constantly even have seen people grabbing multiple pieces at a potluck. Boyfriend refuses to eat banana bread made out of flour because its dry not moist like this recipe. have substituted all sorts of nuts for the topping. Equally delicious with butter or coconut oil for the topping. Make this you won’t be disappointed.
