Banana Split Bread


Last night I baked the Banana Split Tea Bread from Vegan Planet, and we ate it for breakfast this morning. This bread is awesome. It smelled just like banana splits in our kitchen as the bread was baking!!

It's basically a banana bread with chocolate chips, dried cherries, crushed pineapple (and nuts) added in. I followed Robin's recipe exactly, only subbing white whole wheat flour, and omitting the nuts. It was a nice Sunday morning breakfast, made even nicer by the fact that it was already waiting for us when we woke up. As you know, we usually have pancakes on Sunday mornings, but Stella requested pancakes yesterday morning instead!.

Yum! You've been cooking some good stuff this week! The bread looks good! Now you are making me sad that I had to return Vegan Planet back to the library. Maybe I should just buy it!

I am glad you liked the sausages, they look awesome on the grill!

Yum, that bread looks awesome! I wonder how it would be sans chocolate...

Keeta, I think it would be ok without chocolate. It wouldn't be the same, but it'd still be good. Could you use carob chips instead?

Carrie, you keep MAKING me buy new cookbooks. Vegan Planet will be next, I guess!

Sorry DM, Vegan Planet is a good one!!

You are making me want to buy V-con....it's ashame we don't live near one another so we could just do a swap!! My local library sucks and only has VwaV, and one other really crappy Vegan cookbook.
