It's a good thing we have more bananas ripening here. By the time DH came home from work there were only two pieces left for him. I shared it with everyone who stopped by. They walk into the house and the aroma attacks them. You can't say, "No, I haven't been baking". So you have to share.
And the good thing is it removes temptation as well as making BFF's.

That's funny Arlene. During tax season I made regular old Banana Nut Bread. One of my clients came by and the first thing he said was "Oh my God, I smell Banana Nut Bread!" He had the dreamiest look on his face. I had to share some with him too. Hey, he was single and I just couldn't see him making it himself. Got myself a nice tip out of that gesture! HAHAHA
Being from Maine I suggest you try Dried Cranberries along with Walnuts in the Banana bread(equal amounts, I'm a bit heavy handed with both). It's a great flavor with sweet banana and tangy cranberries. I buy the packaged dried cranberries(regular)... Don't recommend the cherry flavored ones...wicked odd taste to those buggers just plain old dried cranberries works great. You'll love it.
Thanks Arlene! The wife doesn't like chocolate chips, but I want to ask you about sifting flour.
I thought it was no longer necessary to sift today's flour? Are you saying we should be sifting 3 times and then measuring for all recipes - or just this one? Thanks!
