It’s back to school and this Orange Banana Breakfast Bread is on the menu. Mornings can be hectic especially, during the school year. But it can go a little more smoothly by making breakfast ahead of time. I love breakfast bread recipes like chocolate zucchini bread and banana bread because I can whip up a large mix and make a quick bread. We’ll eat one, and freeze the other for later.
Which means when mommy brain is in overdrive and I’ve forgotten everything including my head I can whip out a yummy bread. Has that happened to you? There’s so much going one that you don’t even know what day it is? Crazy right. But sometimes that’s life.
If you are really short on time for one reason or another (i.e. life) but you still want to make this recipe, use this mix to make muffins instead of bread. Making muffins will take about 25 minutes instead of 60 minutes for bread. So which would you make? Bread or Muffins?
Orange Banana Breakfast Bread
Makes 2 loaves
- 3 cups flour
- 3/4 cup orange juice
- 1/3 cup melted butter
- 2 eggs
- 1 1/2 cups sugar
- 4 medium ripe banana
- 1 teaspoon vanilla
- 1 teaspoon baking soda
- 1 1/2 teaspoon baking powder
- 1/4 teaspoon nutmeg
- 1/2 teaspoon ginger
- 1/4 teaspoon salt
Tools: large bowl, spatula, 2 9 x 4 loaf pans
Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.
In a large bowl mix sugar, butter and eggs; mix well. Then stir in bananas and orange juice.
Combine dry ingredients and add to banana mixture. Stir until combined.
Spray loaf pans with non-stick spray ( you can also choose to line the pan with parchment paper to make removal easier).
Pour half of the batter into one loaf and the rest into the other. Gently tap on counter top to help batter settle.
Place loaf pans in oven and bake the orange banana breakfast bread mix for at 50 to 65 minutes (baking time depends on your type of loaf pan and how wet and heavy the batter).
Allow bread to cool for 10 minutes.
Slice and serve with your favorite breakfast beverage.
Because we are always working on helping our littles “get their weight up” we actually slice this bread, toasted it and added some butter. Yum.
This is a great bread to freeze. Once cooled wrap it tightly in plastic wrap. Then wrap it in foil and place it in a large freezer bag. Make sure you press all of the air out of the bag. Oh and don’t forget to label it.
When you are ready to eat it, remove it from the freezer and allow it to thaw to room temperature.
