Sketch Pad - January 19, 2021

While we all have our favorite art or craft to do, we all need nourishment too!

Occasionally we will share a recipe, be it healthy or just plain tasty, here on the daily blog.

Feel free to submit your treasured recipe for a future daily blog post. Look for more information on that at the bottom of the post.

Today's recipe... Banana Bread. This has been in my family for so long I am not even sure whose recipe it is anymore. I think it was my paternal grandmother's recipe so I am naming it as such.

Burdick Banana Bread

Ingredients -

1/2 cup butter

1 cup sugar

2 eggs

3 ripe bananas

This recipe does not call for walnuts but I have added them myself, using about 3/4 cups chopped walnuts, adding them after all items have been mixed in.
