Cooking and baking is both physical and mental therapy. - Mary Berry
More time at home, for many folks out there, has meant more time for baking! We've been using this time to perfect our favorite banana bread recipe. We love how this gluten free, dairy free recipe has the perfect texture: moist without being dense and fluffy without being dry. Even better, it requires only one bowl to make and is easy enough for the novice baker! Top with our Peanut Pecan Butter & Potlicker Kitchen Pear Ginger Jam for a dreamy breakfast!
