Today, we are sharing Gifts of Good Taste over at Cents to Get Debt Free. Do you bake or make your own gifts for the Holidays? Since I bake every week, and often share with friends, I haven’t, in the past, done alot of baking for the Holidays. But this year, I have some great motivation, my blog and my fellow bloggers.
My plan for family this year is to bake and create several homemade items and assemble them in a basket. Today I’m sharing several Quick Bread recipes with you, including this yummy Banana Bread.
- 2 c. less 2 T. Flour
- 1 c. Sugar
- 1 t. Baking Soda
- 1/2 t. Salt
- 1/2 c. Oil
- 2 Eggs
- 3 Very Ripe Bananas
- 1 t. Vanilla
- 1/2 c. Nuts (optional)
Sift and mix together dry ingredients. Add oil and eggs, one at a time. Beat after each addition. Add mashed bananas (I put my bananas in the food processor) and vanilla. Fold in nuts , if desired. Pour into pans, bake at 350 degrees, 1 hour for large loaf and about 40 minutes for mini loaves.

I am also planning on starting a new tradition this year, I will be delivering Cinnamon Rolls and Hot Cocoa Mix, on Christmas Eve, to our friends, so they can enjoy a yummy Christmas morning treat. I will be sharing those recipes soon. But here’s a picture to tempt you of the Cinnamon Rolls I made using The Finer Things in Life recipe.
