Just call me Betty Crocker…

I’ve been doing a lot of baking lately.
I baked a carrot cake a couple week’s ago.
Then, over the weekend, I baked this:

{I won the cake plate that you see from
Fancy Schmancy Designs a while back}

And, I also baked this {twice…a double batch on Saturday & a single batch just. last. night.}:

Chocolate Chip Banana Bread & Peanut Butter Cup Brownies…it’s been baked goods heaven here in the Chissler household.

I found the recipe for the bread at All Recipes. I needed to use up some very ripe bananas {since I kinda-sorta fell off the green monster bandwagon}. The recipe calls for a cup of shortening, but I subbed with a cup of butter. Oh, and, yes, the recipe calls for some mayo, too. Sounds gross, but you can’t taste it. Click here for the recipe – it makes two loaves.

As for the brownies, I have to say “thank you” to Katherine at Just Lovely because she posted a picture of them. She found the recipe here. The hubs took a tray of them to his fantasy football draft on Saturday & they were a hit. The kids lve them, too. OK, I won’t lie…I’m quite fond of them, too. I used a store bought brownie mix…the recipe couldn’t be any more simple!!

Are you salivating yet?

  1. you are quite like Betty Croker!! Thanks for the recipes! :)

  2. mayo in baked goods is actually pretty common esp in chocolate goods like cake. it really improves the moistness of the baked goods. never ever use light mayo as a sub though not pretty i tried once. sounds yummy. looks like you are becoming a regular martha stewart over there. i've got blueberry loaves in my freezer, we could do an exchange. which reminds me i have eggs about to go bad guess i need to bake some cookies or something.

  3. That cake plate is ADORABLE! LOVE it. And those brownies look so so good. Also, you should get back on the green monster bandwagon!!!

Comments from you make me happy!
