Brown Butter Banana Bread

Last summer, I had the pleasure of meeting one of my food blogging friends when I went to the Scharffenberger Chocolate event in NYC.  Of course, Jennifer is the one who hooked me up with the invite to the event and I have such fond memories of that day and meeting Jacques Pepin.  Jennifer writes the blog, In Jennie's Kitchen.  She makes so many fabulous recipes and as soon as I saw her post for her Brown Butter Banana Banana Nut Muffins, I just knew I'd have to use her recipe to make banana bread soon!

Well the opportunity to get back in the kitchen and bake finally presented itself on Sunday.  Thank goodness because I am sure some of you were wondering what happened to me last week.  Oh, I was cooking, but nothing interesting enough to share.  Just good old stand-by meals that make everyone happy and don't require following a written recipe.  So I was happy to have some new inspiration come through a friend!


I've used browned butter in a chocolate cookie recipe before and the flavor really can't be beat when adding it to this bread.  I liked that this recipe was different than my usual recipe which has the addition of orange rind and juice in it. This bread has the nutty, rich taste from the brown butter and it takes it to a whole new level.

My Oldest and I loved this bread and it will definitely be making another appearance since I always seem to have an abundance of bananas hanging around.  Please go visit In Jennie's Kitchen for the full recipe HERE.  I'm sure you'll find a few other recipes you'll want to try while you are there!

 Oh, and don't forget to enter my current giveaway!  It's a $45 Gift Certificate to Bonefish Grill!  Head over to MY LAST POST and leave a comment!  I've been enjoying reading about everyone's favorite Valentine's Day gifts, and how they plan to share the gift certificate if they win!  There's still time to enter, so what are you waiting for????

I'm always looking for new ways to make banana bread because I always have bananas that go overripe that I need to use. But, it's a perfect excuse because I love banana bread.

I think browned butter adds so much flavor - I need to remember to try this next time I have bananas that need to be used!
