Having fun isn’t hard, when you’ve got a library card!

Anybody out there grow up watching obsessing over Arthur?

Everyone?! That’s what I thought 🙂

So hopefully the title of this post was a little familiar. If not, let me remind you…


Yeah. You’re welcome.

Back to the story at hand…
Guess what I did the other day?
Anybody? Anybody?

Didn’t see that one coming, did ya?

Anyways… what does a baking-crazy girl do with library card?

Checks out cookbooks. Obvs.

Once I finally decided on the three I wanted to check out that day (only three at a time… womp womp) I took my treasures home and made a bee-line for the kitchen!

My first attempt was a little kooky, but turned out great!
Banana Bread.
What’s so weird about that you ask? It was a yeast bread. Yes. A yeast-banana-bread.

This recipe doesn’t have the sweet, dessert-esque flavor of traditional banana bread. The banana flavor is very subtle – but still there nonetheless!

A sweet and light yeast bread that has a subtle banana flavor. Makes the BEST French Toast!



  1. Warm bananas in microwave and mash well.
  2. Mix water and honey. Add yeast and let proof a few minutes
  3. Add all remaining ingredients except flours.
  4. Add flour slowly until a stiff yet elastic dough forms. May need a little more/less depending on weather, etc.
  5. Knead 6-8 minutes.
  6. Place dough in a greased bowl, cover and set in a warm place (like a window seal). Let rise 1 hour.
  7. Punch dough down (it should have risen to about double in size). Place in a greased loaf pan, cover and let rise again. Meanwhile, preheat oven to 350*F.
  8. After about 30 minutes, uncover bread and place in the pre-heated oven.
  9. Bake until loaf is golden brown and sounds hollow when tapped. About 1 hour. Let cool before slicing.
