My banana bread is doing double duty for dinner tonight!
First of all, it's serving as the centerpiece of the table
on top of my new "old" breadboard.
I love how huge it is...plenty of room for a large cake plate, serving
dishes and something to spread on the bread.
Since I'm serving this bread for dessert, I'm replacing
the typical butter with some homemade buttercream frosting.
See that frosting getting all melty? The bread was still
warm when I ate it. The cook has to test the food before
it's served, right? ha.
