I don’t have a lot of time in the mornings before work and never feel like doing food prep so it’s wonderful to be able to just grab and go.
Since being single, I can’t count the number of times I’ve made banana bread and ended up throwing some of it away because it got stale before I could eat it all.
So now what I do is make a loaf, or even two, let it cool, slice and freeze in individual plastic bags, leaving a portion to eat fresh that day. I’ll do it on the weekend when I have time and enjoy cooking.
Then all I have to do is grab one or two to take to work. By the time break or lunch hits, it’s thawed. I’ll bring a small container with some butter too.
Any banana bread recipe will do. I use the one I’ve always used from my Better Homes and Gardens cookbook.
This could be done with any quick bread recipe!
