FREE Illustrated Banana Bread Recipe

In January of 2009 I shared a family recipe that has been passed on from my great-grandmother, to my mom and then on to me and my 4 siblings. I created an illustrated version of the banana bread recipe to share with my family and had it printed on tea towels for Christmas gifts a few years ago.

I have now updated the image and created a square version and portrait version to share as a gift for you!

Banana Bread
I use a 16×4 long loaf pan by Wilton as a “Pullman Loaf Pan”

I printed one and put it in an 8×10 frame for my kitchen, so I can easily access the recipe when we need a little comfort.

In hard times like these, slowing down and getting back to the basics like baking seems like a perfect thing to do.


You can download both versions for free to use for personal use:

Day 3. Destination Austin, Texas

We left the New Orleans RV park really early, heading west. The Louisiana I-10 corridor seemed to consist mostly of bayou and bumpy bridges. I suspected maybe there was something wrong with the SUV, and tried shifting weight toward the tow hitch as recommended online and also changed the shock absorbing system from “comfort” to “sport”, which did seem to help. More on that later.

Erin was still very sick and the bumping around was not helping at all. We would have to go to the doctor or hospital if she wasn’t better by morning.

We made it to Austin in late afternoon. After setting up camp at McKinney Falls State Park and taking showers we headed out to town to visit Mallory at Black’s Barbecue. Dinner was really good and seeing my cousin again after ten years was even better. The kids thought she was really cool.texasborderbw
