Banana Bread with Ginger and Orange Zest


 No matter how hard I try, I always seem to have 1 or 2 bananas left over at the end of the week that are way too ripe for my liking. I was digging through old recipes and found my Mom's banana bread, which is fool-proof and so delicious. I decided to add my own spin by adding some fresh ginger and a little orange zest for a pop of freshness. Serve this warm with a little butter, or toast it and top with peanut or almond butter!


1. Preheat oven to 350. Coat a loaf pan with butter and dust with flour. 

2. Cream butter and sugar for 1 minute on medium speed. Add eggs, vanilla, ginger and orange zest and beat until fluffy. 



3. Add the remaining ingredients and beat until just combined. Transfer mixture to the prepared loaf pan. 



4. Bake for 50 minutes, or until a toothpick inserted into the center comes out clean. Let cool 10 minutes, then carefully remove and finish cooling on a wire rack. Once cool, slice and serve.
