I hope you had a fabulous weekend. I spent Sunday baking and visiting with friends in the sun. It was the perfect way to spend the last long weekend of the summer.
I made my famous banana bread for a picnic at English Bay. Check out the recipe for Banana Espresso Chocolate Chip Bread from Everyone Likes Sandwiches. This is currently my favourite banana bread recipe. What’s your favourite banana bread recipe? Do you include chocolate chips and walnuts? Please share your recipes and tips!
I also made a Peach and Ginger-Pecan Cake for some friends that came over to visit in the evening. This cake was delicious. The recipe is from Desserts for Breakfast. The final product is a small, tasty cake that can easily be shared between six to eight people. The flavour combination of the ginger, brown sugar, and peaches was perfect for this end-of-summer/beginning-of-fall dessert. And yes, I did in fact eat the leftover dessert for breakfast. Truly a breakfast for champions.
