Pure Comfort

Whats the perfect comfort food for a miserable, rainy day?

Banana Bread

Banana bread!!

This is a simple recipe that I have had great success with!


  • 3 or 4 ripe bananas, smashed
  • 1/3 cup melted butter
  • 3/4 cup sugar
  • 1 egg, beaten
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • Pinch of salt
  • 1 1/2 cups of all-purpose flour
  • 1 Cup chocolate chips

No need for a mixer for this recipe. Preheat the oven to 350°F (175°C). With a wooden spoon, mix butter into the mashed bananas in a large mixing bowl. Mix in the sugar, egg, and vanilla. Sprinkle the baking soda and salt over the mixture and mix in. Add the flour last, mix. Pour mixture into a buttered 4x8 inch loaf pan. Bake for 1 hour. Cool on a rack. Remove from pan and slice to serve.

Whats your favorite rainy day comfort food?

I can attest to the fact that this is very yummy! I'll be over tonight ;-) Oh- my favorite rainy day comfort food? Either decadent mac and cheese, or simmering spaghetti sauce all day on the stove.
