Vintage Banana Tea Bread!

Going back into my archives in celebration of 10 years of posts,
I want to share a banana bread recipe I have made for so many years I've lost count.
I'm calling it Vintage Banana Tea Bread simply because it goes back so long ago.

So here is the post below in the original share from about 2007


 Today I have a recipe to share.
 One that I have made for years.
 Tea Bread! 
It can be made with or without bananas.
 Perfect to use when you get down to the last couple over ripe bananas. 
Instead of throwing them away, 
why not make this delicious bread for breakfast, snacks or a tea break! 
It's not sweet, but rather a light snack bread without using yeast.

 I have so many great recipes to pass along. 
As I have shared  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 abilities, 
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 didn't follow a recipe. 
Another talent she had for just pulling it all together.
 Oh how, those dinners bring back memories of special times.

I hope to share many here in time 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 any time of the year.
Wrapped or  boxed it makes the perfect hostess gift
 welcome to the neighborhood gift.
This bread freezes really well too.

Hope you enjoyed another look back at a past post.
Have a wonderful week!!

This looks like a delicious recipe and I like how you showed the recipe card. I have many of those with treasure recipes!

Oh, I love those written recipes so much better than ones via computer. Every smudge and note keeps so many memories alive. I have three ripe bananas waiting just now for banana bread I've meant to make since last week. I have a recipe I've used throughout 32 years, from the very first cookbook I purchased when I married. There's one ingredient in it that is different from most banana bread recipes and it makes a HUGE difference. Your recipe actually has it, very familiar to mine. Enjoy, dear friend. Save me a slice and I'll save you a slice. ;)

Thank you for sharing this post again, Celeste. Isn't it wonderful that you have your dear Mom's recipe? When you make it, it must be like having a little bit of her in your kitchen with you. Doesn't food do that to us? It brings our memories back to happy times and those that we love. I hope you have a blessed week, sweet friend! Love and hugs!

craftyles said...

That looks delicious. I love the cite recipe card too. I want to try this, because it's not too sweet and it freezes well. That fits all my criteria. Love hearing about your precious Mom too. Enjoy and Happy Spring!

Sue Kosec said...

Well aren't YOU the fortunate one? you inherited the cookbooks and recipes. Me? No I didn't. My father threw everything away because "I'll never use them." Of course, forgetting my sister and I would love to have had them.

By the way - this looks delicious!!!!!!!!!!!

Happy eating!

I have never made banana bread in a tube pan! Looks like a fun idea! The recipe is very similar to the one I use, but I always add cinnamon just because we love it.

Linda Walker said...

I love banana bread, made a couple of loaves a few weeks ago! This recipe is very close to the one I used! I always bake in loaf pans but it looks fancier in a tube pan. Must try! I love to eat it warm with just a little butter! Sometimes a little jam! always with coffee or tea! Yum! Thanks for posting! I have some over ripe bananas to use so I will try my tube pan this time!!! xo

Hello Celeste! Can you imagine this, with tea, on the deck in the spring weather? How lovely.

NanaDiana said...

I am saving this recipe, Celeste. This sounds delicious and I would never think to bake it in a tube pan. Great idea. I will give this to my son for the 'taste test' when I make it and let you know his 'rating' better not be better than my own)
Have a lovely week. xo Diana
ps. need to catch up with you soon!!!

Kim said...

This looks so good, Celeste, but what I really love is the recipe card!! I am a throwback and I still use them. With everything online these days, I enjoy holding a card in my hand...Thanks for sharing and have a great week! :)

You know, Celestina, I love banana bread, and this tea bread you made looks so moist and delicious. Banana bread reminds me of the holiday season cause my son-in-law makes us chocolate chip banana bread every year. This would be so Yummy at Easter time too. How special that your mother's cook books were passed on to you. She sounds like she was a wonderful cook.

Happy first day of Spring, dear friend.

love, ~Sheri

Donna said...

Looks yummy, Celestina! What a great idea to bake it in a bundt pan. I love making banana bread too, it's one of my favorites.
PS: I had to chuckle to myself when I read the title of your post:) Made me think I was going to read a about very, very old loaf of bread:)

Conniecrafter said...

Isn't it something that we all have those recipes that have been handed down and we have used over the years, I have never made banana bread in one of those pans before, that is and interesting way to do it :) Hope you have a great week!
