Early Morning Breakfast

    I fixed banana bread and lattes this morning for breakfast. Ashlee took a French vanilla latte in her thermos. I also fixed hazelnut. I like both. Banana bread was my top seller in my bakery. It has a lot of bananas and less sugar than most recipes. 
   Since it is a top secret recipe, I can't give it out. It's the only recipe I don't give out. However, I do have another one which is very good. Enjoy!


1 cup mashed bananas
3/4 cup sugar
1 cup English walnut halves
3 cups all-purpose flour
1/4 teaspoon salt
1 tablespoon baking soda
1 tablespoon vanilla
1 teaspoon ground nutmeg
1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
1/2 teaspoon ground cloves
1/3 cup extra virgin olive oil
2 eggs, beaten and added one at a time
1/2 cup milk
1 stick butter, softened

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Spray and flour one large loaf pan and set aside. mash bananas. Add spices and mix well. In another bowl, sift flour, salt, and baking powder. Combine mixtures. Add beaten eggs one at a time, stirring well, scraping the sides of the bowl. Add remaining ingredients except walnuts. Mix well. Fold in walnuts.  Pour into prepared pan and bake at 350 degrees for twenty to thirty minutes. Cool on a wire rack.
