I wanted something new for breakfast. Lately, I’ve been boring eating buttered toast for breakfast. Though to be fair, I haven’t been terribly hungry in the morning. I figured a banana bread would be a good change for breakfast. It’s something that I don’t need to prepare, just slice and eat! There’s nothing better than breakfast that’s ready for you.
It’s been a while since I’ve made a banana bread. For the last one, I used applesauce in the batter. I decided not to use it this time, and went with butter instead. Mostly because I didn’t have any applesauce in the house, and was too lazy to go to the store. I will say that when you substitute the butter for applesauce, you have to be careful of the batter being too liquidy. To keep it simple for multiple reasons, I just used butter.
To spice up the banana bread, I decided to add some fresh cherries. Pitting the cherries is a pain, but not hard (just messy). If you can find pitted cherries, I highly recommend paying a bit more. It’ll save your clothes from stains. The cherries give a nice burst of tartness, but baking them takes any bit out of them. Cherries and bananas are a great combo! Next time you see some cherries on sale, you should pick some up and try this.
