Welcome to my Tastey Tuesday. (yes, spelled with an e) LOL!! Today I have a recipe to share. One that I have made for years. Tea Bread! It can be made plain or with bananas, like I have for you today.
The recipe shows the directions with or without bananas and this is a great one since it is most ingredients we have in the house. Perfect to use when you get down to 2 or 3 last bananas that are over ripe. So instead of throwing them away, why not make this tastey treat for breakfast, snacks or tea break! It is not sweet, but rather a light snack bread without using yeast.

I wanted to share some fun in the kitchen because I have so many great recipes to pass along. As I have talked about in past posts, my mother was a gourmet cook. She had an amazing talent to make anything taste delicious. I don't even come close to her cooking ablilities, but I inherited all her tried and true recipes and cookbooks when she passed away. Little written captions to herself, sideline notes, and pages of wonderful directions for meals she shared with family, friends and many church dinners. Most of the time, she did not follow a recipe. Another talent she had for just pulling it all together. Ahh, those dinners bring back memories of special times.

I hope to share many here and most will be easy and quick. So copy if you like, enjoy and share with your family and friends.
Let's get started.

Perfect for a cool Fall day. This tea bread freezes excellent too. Try it and enjoy. If you have any questions feel free to send me an email. Remember to add the sugar,salt and veg.oil. I do not have those pictured above.
Till next time, stay busy, happy and I will see you again with studio views from Paint Palette Wednesday.
Hugs, Celestina Marie

Hi Celestina Marie,

The handwritten recipes are great aren't they and love that you have your Mothers books.
thanks for the recipe, sounds delicious.
I am always making banana cakes, when the bananas are too ripe to eat, but they make the nicest cakes.
