Tempt My Tummy Tuesday …… "money"Bread

by Lisa on September 29, 2008

Hello everyone and welcome to Tempt My Tummy Tuesday. Glad to have you join us. My sister, Lana, and I co-host this blog carnival. We share recipes, kitchen and cooking tips, and anything food related that you want to share. So, join the fun. Write your foodie post and then link back to my blog, mentioning Tempt My Tummy Tuesday. Don’t forget to leave your link info, below, with Mr. Linky.

What? You are confused? You are wondering what money and bread have to do with each other. Well, they don’t, I think. But my daughter doesn’t know that. My 16 month old daughter, Gracie, is learning new words every day. She just doesn’t always get those words right. For some reason, that we don’t understand, her word for BANANA is MONEY. Whenever she wants a banana, sees a banana, or hears us say the word “banana”, she says “money”. So, go figure. I made “money bread”, yesterday, because I had some ripe “monies”. Here is my VERY easy “money bread” recipe. Gracie loves it. (Secret tip – I add chocolate chips for an added bonus)

  • 1 cup sugar
  • 1/2 cup butter (softened)
  • 2 eggs
  • 1 1/3 cup flour
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1 1/4 cup ripe bananas ( 2 large)
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla
  • 1 cup nuts, chopped (optional)
  • 1/2 semi sweet chocolate chips (optional)

Cream butter and sugar together. Add eggs, one at a time. In a separate bowl, sift flour, soda, and salt together. Add sifted mixture alternately with bananas to butter/sugar mixture. Add vanilla, nuts, and chocolate chips. Bake in a greased and floured loaf pan at 350 degrees, for 1 hour.

Remember to go to Lana’s blog and leave her some comment love. Thanks, again, to all our faithful TMTT participants. It wouldn’t be any fun without you!

The BEST way to eat “money” bread is with chocolate chips! Your little Grace is so adorable. She needs her own cookbook.

I’d like some money bread after the day we had with the stock market! That Gracie knows her stuff!

Yummy! I love money/banana bread.

Thanks again for the bloggy award!

Have a great week.

That money bread sounds awesome! Kids are the best!

Great idea to add the chocolate chips. Despite the fact that Mary Poppins is practically perfect in every way, I’m pretty sure she simply forgot to say “Just a spoonful of chocolate helps the medicine go down…”

I’m new to the carnival, I came looking for one because my regular Tuesday carnival hostess at “Kitchen Tip Tuesday” took the day off today.

So glad I found you! If I post a recipe instead of a kitchen tip, I’ll link my post to both carnivals now!

monkey bread is always good, but I’ve never attempted to make it myself but I think you’ve tempted me to try ti LOL

That is such a cute story, and I love this recipe!

Darn…I was hoping there was a great money trick in store…I love banana bread, though and so does my family, so this will be a treat!


SarahHub September 30, 2008 at 6:46 pm

Oh, it’s just the right time of year for warm banana bread!


Tara @ Feels like home September 30, 2008 at 7:32 pm

I’m a little late, but I’m here! 🙂

I love that your Grace calls bananas money. My Grace says nana for banana.

Your Tempting Tummy carnival is growing so fast. Keep up the great work!
