An easy mixer-free recipe for moist banana bread spiked with bourbon for a little deep heat. One of the best banana breads I’ve ever tasted and, trust me, I’ve tasted A LOT of banana breads.

brown butter cookie dough dip

Party perfect brown butter cookie dough dip: creamy, sweet, and sprinkled with crunchy chocolate chips and buttery toffee bits. Serve with cookies, graham crackers, sliced apples!

cornmeal-pancakes-8

cornmeal pancakes with honey cayenne butter

These cornmeal pancakes have a natural sweetness and slightly grainy texture from the addition of cornmeal. They are crisp on the outside and fluffy on the inside and taste a bit like seared cornbread you may find at a BBQ joint. Don’t skip slathering with a generous smear of the creamy honey cayenne butter. The sweet heat pulls it all together!

This is the kind of simple loaf you see sliced thick and domino-stacked in bakery cases. It’s sturdy with a welcomed denseness and a little sweetness on the vanilla side swirled with rich chocolate flavor.
