Banana-Walnut Bread

Banana-Walnut Bread

I had this sudden craving for banana-walnut bread today, so I baked one this afternoon.

The banana I used wasn’t very ripe but this still tastes OK (a little overbaked, though). I just had two slices. Very filling. Mmmm…

OK, guys, here's the recipe. I substituted the shortening with butter, though. ;)

This looks awesome Obachan!
I love the banana+walnut combination. I sometimes make a pancake with this combo.

I love your blog Obachan!

Oh I love fish in general and don't mind eating the fish head. This looks so good. Would you mind sharing the recipe with us? Thanks! Keep up the good works!

Well, this didn’t take too long to make. Quick and easy.

I can picture you sniffing the screen. ;)

Oh, pancakes sound good, too. I’ve tried banana pancakes before, but without walnuts. Maybe next time. Thanks.

Thanks for loving my blog. I linked to the recipe. Hope you enjoy it.

Yours will be better than mine, I’m sure. :) Mine was overbaked.

What I like about your blog is that I have suddenly realised that while reading it I'm smiling, it's nice and relaxing, and friendly. Keep up the good work. Bye for now.

The bread looks really good. I am glad your baked, and I can live vicariously through you! Thank you! I still don't have my oven yet...*sigh*

my favorite from the US Your cake looks wonderful

Well, I bet my funny “Engrish” is also making many people smile when I least expect it. But that’s OK. That’s a gift, I think. Think about it. Isn’t it much better than being terribly smart and making people disgusted? I’d rather be dumb and make people smile.

Good luck. ;)

Oh, hope you get your oven soon and start enjoying baking.

My first experience with banana-walnut bread was in the U.S., too. I love it.

I definitely don't smile because I find your blog "dumb", I find it entertaining and interesting, and I'm smiling out of contentment. And your English is much better than my Japanese. As they say in France : Nah! Which kids say and nearly means : There!
