Chai Banana Bread

I love these crisp cool fall days.  Days like this make me want to bake.  I noticed my bananas were getting heavily spotted and beyond where I would eat them. (although Bill loves them this way) Before he could eat them I decided today I would make some banana bread.  But instead of the traditional banana bread I decided to add Chai spices to the recipe.  

Patting myself on the back *What a great idea* first off this bread smells amazing while it's baking and the spices kick this bread up to another level.  Husband approved too.  I knew he would love it he loves  banana bread and my hot chai tea.

Chai Banana Bread

3 cups sugar
3 eggs
1/2 tablespoon vanilla
1/3 cup water
1 cup oil
3 1/2 cups flour
1 1/2 teaspoon salt
2 teaspoons baking soda
1 teaspoon cinnamon
1 teaspoon cloves
1 teaspoon cardamon
 5 ripe bananas, mashed

Mix together in a large mixing bowl sugar, eggs, vanilla, water and oil.  Sift into sugar mixture flour, salt, baking soda, cinnamon, cloves and cardamon. Fold in bananas and divide batter into 2 greased and floured loaf pans.  Bake in a pre-heated 350º oven for 45 minutes to 1 hour. 

Your friends and family will love receiving this Chai Banana Bread this Holiday Season.

Until Next Time,
