TWD baking Day

Today was a fun day for baking. I am visiting my family and found all the ingredients for this weeks post. Ashlee of A Year in the Kitchen chose this recipe. Here is her blog if you want to check it out. www.ashleescooking.blogspot.com/ This baking group is so much fun. I love seeing how everyone Else's turns out. I had no problems with the recipe. I found good chocolate in my Moms cubbard. That makes all the difference : ) The batter looked great and I didn't have any problems with it being too runny liker some people had mentioned. I followed the directions exactly. I can't wait to sample it next!
After trying the bread I was a little disappointed. The flavour was not what I was expecting. My bread was on the dry side and lacked banana flavour. My family all thought that it wasn't as sweet as it should have been. I think I will stick to Aunt Betsy's banana bread recipe for next time. I have already made next weeks recipe and LOVED it. Happy baking to everyone!

Hey, I just saw your comment over on another blog. Could you tell me where you got your CHEAP close to my heart stamps at?

Interesting that yours was dry. I don't think I've seen that observation yet - it's fun to read everyone's experiences with the same recipe!

Glad you got a chance to do a little baking. Wow what a fish Jonathon caught. Cute picture of Anna there with the doggies...do you think you may get another one? I just looked today at CTMH...I had forgotten about the sale. Man wish we were closer so we could share all our stuff again. Have fun.
