Right now, the heat index here is 108 degrees. One-hundred and eight…degrees! On days like this, I dart from my car to the doors of my house or office with an unparalleled quickness. I also pray for those who have nowhere to dart and gain greater respect for the people who work outdoors in any capacity. A day like today should not involve turning on a stove or oven…which is why I am so glad I made the dish featured in the post a while ago! Banana nut bread is a classic staple that everyone should know how to make. If you don’t or if you do and need to do better, start scrolling, friend 🙂 This bread has a little twist by the name of freshly-ground clove that amplifies the flavor so well. Spiced banana nut bread is the cooler older cousin to the normal version. This addition is new to me and I was very pleased with the result. Too much clove can sink any dish, so make sure to be light-handed with it. If you don’t have any clove in your pantry and your city is also in the throws of a heat wave that is keeping you next to the AC vent, don’t fret. Without the clove, this is still a solid, classic banana nut bread. It comes together quickly and so easily, too. I’d love to know how you add a twist to your favorite classic recipe so pleas let me know in the comments below.
I hope you’ll add this spiced banana nut bread to your arsenal. Thanks for reading!
