My favorite bakery in Savannah is Back in the Day Bakery. Their cupcakes are perfection to me. I recently found myself noticing three ripe bananas on my kitchen counter that needed a good end. I pulled down the bakery cookbook from my shelf, an autographed copy gifted to me by my friend Lindsey.
Brown Sugar Banana Bread. Perfect. All I needed were some pecans, and I chose praline pecans because they reminded me of Savannah's Candy Kitchen. Everything else was in my pantry. I mixed molasses and sugar to sub for brown sugar, allspice instead of mace, and vanilla bean paste instead of vanilla.
I couldn't wait to taste! I smelled it baking as I lay on the sofa. I think it helped me recover! It was deliciously warm, so I kept it in the microwave to keep it that way until Dan got home. Delicious... I'm so happy those bananas found a beautiful end.
I don't like to republish recipes from cookbooks because I want to support the authors, but this recipe has been shared out on other blogs with some minor alterations if you care to search Google.
