Peanut Butter Cup Banana Bread

I saw this last year on A Bit of Sunshine, so a while back, Paven & I made some with the leftover Easter candy that we always have waaay too much of...

I think I make banana bread different every time, but I'm pretty sure this is what I used this time :)

  • 2 cups flour
  • 1 1/2 tsp. baking powder
  • 1/2 tsp. baking soda
  • 1/4 tsp. salt
  • 2 eggs, beaten
  • 3 ripe bananas (that's just what we had, could've used more)
  • 1 cup sugar
  • 1/2 cup melted butter
  • 15 or so miniature Reese's peanut butter cups, quartered
  • 1/2 cup pecans 

In a large bowl combine flour, baking powder, baking soda, & salt...Make a well in center of flour mixture, set aside...
 In a medium bowl combine eggs, banana, sugar, & butter...
Add egg mixture to flour mixture, stir just until moistened, batter should be lumpy...
Fold in Reese's chunks & pecans...Spoon batter into greased loaf pan.

Bake at 350 for 45-60 minutes

 Um yeah, it was pretty good :)

And by the way, if you've never tried these, you really should...they work.  Seems like we get fruit flies the second our bananas get the teensiest bit ripe & these work almost instantly :)

The End :)
