    I make homemade bread every few days, I started a few months ago as a way to save money and cut back on processed food. Now if something happens and I have to buy store bought my husband and kids complain because it doesn't taste good. I usually make whole wheat or white

    My mom use to make homemade white bread all the time when I was a kid, we always loved to get a slice when still warm with butter and jelly on it.

    When the 5 kids were growing up I them different sweet breads sometimes and we also made fried bread which we all loved too.

    My two favorite sweetbreads are banana and then pumpkin but very very favorite is the kind my mom use to make banana bread with m&ms in it. MMMMM

    I found this online to share with you.

    Banana Bread with M&Ms


    you need:
    3 overripe bananas
    1 1/2 cups of flour
    1 cup sugar
    1/2 tsp baking soda
    dash of salt
    1 egg
    1/4 cup butter or margarine
    4 tbs milk- chocolate chips ( or m&m's)

    pre heat oven to 325 degrees. Mash bananas in a large bowl. Add flour, sugar, baking soda, salt, and egg.
    melt butter in microwave, add it to the bowl, and stir until just blended.
    pour into greased loaf pan. Sprinkle on chocolate chips. Bake for 70 minutes, or until a toothpick inserted in middle comes out clean.

    It's yummy.

    4 cups of sugar

    1 cup of oil

    5 cups of flour

    4 tsp. soda

    1 tsp. cloves

    1 tsp. cinnamon

    2 cups of nuts (she used walnuts)

    2 cups of dates (cut)

    Mix in order given.  Mixing flour, soda, cloves and cinnamon together.  Bake in3 or 4 loafs at 350 for 1 hour.  I'm planning on making 2 loafs at a time in the oven :)
