I had over ripe bananas to use up this week and happened to
think butterscotch chips might be good in it. So, I looked online
to see if it had ever been done before or if I was about to
create something original! Well, it turns out that this combination
has been around for years! Who knew?
This particular recipe was given a 5 star review so I chose it.
It was wonderful, moist, and such a nice change from
plain old banana bread. I will certainly be making it again!
The house smelled wonderful while it was baking!
I had enough bananas to double the recipe and make two
loaves. One is going to work with The Mister.
That is, if we don't dig into it before he takes it!
The butterscotch chips melt into the bread as it bakes!
