Donkey Kong Banana Bread! So easy, you don’t have to jump over barrels or fireballs for a slice.

Difficulty2Ah, Donkey Kong. A timeless favorite. One of the first video games I played as a child.

I suck at it.

Well, that’s not fair. I haven’t played in well over a decade since the last time I rage quit. I’m that bad. I do love it, though. What better way to commemorate a classic than baking a few loaves of banana bread with a cute DK vanilla icing tie?

We bought two bunches of bananas last week for our monthly shopping trip – one for eating, one exclusively for this bread. With 2-3 bananas per loaf, I ended up with three loaves. The first was for a birthday present for my dad (I love you, daddy) and the last two were set aside for our purposes. The bread itself is rather easy to make from odds and ends in your pantry and perfect for breakfast. Also, I get unnaturally proud of myself when I succeed at baking bread.

You’ll also notice that this recipe does not contain nuts. I could be nice and say I’m taking people with food allergies into consideration (well, sure, that’s part of it, I guess), but I just don’t believe in banana nut bread. It’s BANANA BREAD, yo.

Ready? Let’s go.

She came upon a recipe for Lembas Bread from LOTR in one of her feeds and thought it would be awesome if I made it. I couldn’t have agreed more and set to work on the post she sent:

I have no idea where this came from. Dear reader, if this is your recipe please contact me so that I may give you proper credit.

This is another one of those easy-peasy recipes as long as you know how to use measuring cups and spoons. The recipe calls for an electric hand mixer but if you don’t have one your bread won’t suffer for it.

Ready? Let’s go.
