Pregnancy cravings have been driving a lot of our experiments with food lately. I have been craving banana bread for a while now but never had the ingredients at the same time as the energy to be able to make some. Not to long ago I decided that I was making myself banana bread and that was the end of it. Off to Pinterest I went to find an especially tasty recipe. I found so many different variations it made poor HD cry. I eventually ended up at the blog of Six Sisters’ Stuff and stumbled upon a recipe from them for a browned butter version. Check out the link for the recipe! The only change I made was to add chocolate chips and I made a frosting to go on top.
I don’t have a good picture of browning the butter as I wasn’t that handy with swirling the butter and taking a picture at the same time. I will say that the process didn’t work out as expected. I may have been doing something wrong but it cooked off more liquid than I expected and took three times as long as I expected to get it a noticeable change in color. That very well may be how it is supposed to go. This was my first try at making browned butter after all. Now that I know how to do it we might try to make some pasta that way!
Now the frosting top I made was very simple. Cream cheese, milk, and powdered sugar all mixed together. What made this stuff over the top was that I used strawberry cream cheese. No I can’t tell you the amounts. I think it was half a tub of cream cheese, a couple tablespoons of milk and a cup of powdered sugar.
The resulting combination was deliciousness. I couldn’t wait for it to cool down to have some. I had a piece with butter….
And a piece with frosting
Now go forth and see what creative combinations you can come up with! Be sure to share the results with us as we LOVE to see what others come up with and even learn a new thing or two.
