banana bread recipesWhen you write a food blog, you tend to read a lot of food blogs.  Amanda at i am baker is one of my favorites.  First of all, the woman is amazingly talented.  Her cookies and cakes are beyond gorgeous and she oozes creativity.  On top of that, she is hysterically funny.  Recently she has been posting vlogs and they make me laugh very, very, hard.  The other day, she posted this banana bread recipe and I had bananas laying around and three kids that wanted to bake something.  Amanda calls it cake, but it makes me feel better to serve it for breakfast to my children when it is called bread.

This bread is moist and the white chocolate chips melt into the cake bread leaving behind this caramelized taste that is amazing.  Obviously you could leave out the white chocolate chips, but why would you?  The brown sugar gives a bit of depth and this will now be my go-to banana cake bread recipe.
