I found something hiding on the back of my baker’s rack this morning!
 
I don’t even remember buying these! But there they were, soft and spotted and perfect for banana bread! One more day and I would have lost these guys. Glad I found them when I did!

I decided instead of my tried and true banana bread recipe I would try something new.

I found this recipe over at Smitten Kitchen, substituted the bourbon for brandy (hey, its what I had) and added 1/4 cup of sour cream. Anyway, apparently I forgot to take a picture of the bread when it came out of the oven….but you’ve all seen banana bread before, so you know what to expect, right?

This was a nice flavor change, a little more late fall/early winter type of banana bread. You can also swap out the brandy for bourbon and make a boozy bourbon banana bread instead!
