Memorial Day weekend doesn’t conjure up images of sweatpants and slippers, does it?
Unless you live in New Jersey.
This past weekend, when most are wearing swimsuits and running through sprinklers, we were huddled up around a fire and burning pumpkin spice candles.
And with sweatpants, comes banana bread. It’s like an unspoken rule or something.
I’m dipping into my Back in the Day Bakery Cookbook again on this one. Actually, this recipe is the reason I bought the book.
Brown Sugar Banana Bread? Sahn mahh uppp.
Of course I made some tweaks here and there.
I used my beloved Chobani in the batter, because, well, it’s amazing…and of course I added a glaze.
A Brown Sugar Glaze.
Honestly, why in the world don’t people glaze banana bread? It’s like the loaf cake no one frosts, why IS that?!
Anyhow, I needed to remedy the nakedness of banana bread instantly.
And people, you’ll never go naked again. Serious.
Brown Sugar Banana Bread with Brown Sugar Glaze.
The recipe is pretty basic…
Next up get you some old-ish bananas.
And boom! Bake it.
When you bread is done and cooled off a bit, go ahead and make your glaze.
This glaze you guys. Brown sugar, butter, heavy cream…
It’s so good you’ll want to stick your face up in there and motorboat it.
And of course you can slather some butter all up on there. I mean, really.
