      Banana Bread Variations:

      • Make a simple vanilla icing to drizzle over the banana bread. Just prior to serving, add fresh sliced banana to the top.
      • Add 1 cup of chocolate chips, mini chocolate chips, dried cranberries, dried cherries, chopped dates, or raisins to the batter.
      • To make an orange cream cheese spread, beat 4 oz of softened cream cheese with the 1 tsp of orange zest, 1 to 2 tbs of confectioners’ sugar to taste, and a few drops of vanilla extract. Beat until light and fluffy. Refrigerate and let the cream cheese come to room temperature before spreading.
      • To make a maple butter spread beat 4 tbs of softened butter with 2 tbs of dark maple syrup.
