I started out with the intention of making a banana bread recipe since I had a few overripe bananas on the counter. But when I went to use them they were a bit too far gone, so change of plan.
I had just bought some strawberries at the store the day before, and thought, why not make something with that instead.
So I put some dry ingredients together and then went to grab the eggs from the fridge….. Dang! Not enough eggs. This is not starting out well. I set the dry ingredients aside and decided I better make a list to take to the store tomorrow so that I don’t forget anything else.
I feel like I’ve had to stop by the store every day this week because I keep forgetting one thing or another! I need to get better at making a list.
Anyway, I finally have what I need to complete this recipe. I decided that, instead of a bread, I would make a coffee cake. Kind of a cross between a bread and a cake.
I must say that it turned out quite delicious. I had a piece with my coffee this morning and another for dessert after dinner. It’s addicting! Definitely worth that extra trip to the store………again.
Move over banana bread, there’s a new coffee cake in town!
