First of all, I’d like to apologise to the wonderful Joy of Hot Oven Warm Heart for taking so damned long to get this post up! This is one recipe I’ve really been looking forward to and I go and get ill. I’m such a sickly child! But, better late than never.

Banana bread is one of my very favorite things to bake. I absolutely, positively adore the stuff. The thing that got me excited about this particular banana bread was the apples, not only do you add chopped Granny Smiths to the batter, but you go and caramelize them first! My heart just skipped a beat! Caramelized apple in banana bread, how delightfully nomtastic!

I have to admit, this recipe has bumped my previous go to banana bread recipe to the back of the class! I just can’t describe how amazing, how mouthwateringly delicious this cake is! Spicy and sweet, moist and sticky. I just can’t get enough! My breakfast for the next week has been sorted, don’t know what the boyf is going to do ­čśë

    Hello my dear!So glad to read your post and find that you love the bread! YAY! Isn't it just the best? After discovering this recipe a few years ago, it's become my go-to-just-can't-bear-to-bake-another banana bread recipe, and I haven't looked back! It's actually the reason I joined SMS… I knew there were probably lots of other treasures hiding in that cookbook, and I couldn't wait to try them out! But boy am I glad I became a part of this fabulous group- otherwise, I never would have had the pleasure of meeting and getting to know such wonderful people like yourself ­čÖé Thank you so much for baking with me on my hosting week- sickness and all! What a trooper and great friend! You're the best, Katie! Oh, and by the way, your loaf looks absolutely delicious, and I love that decorative wire platter your slices are stacked on… just gorgeous!Hope you're feeling LOTS better, and back to your cheery upbeat self! Are you baking this week's peach muffins? If so, I can't wait to be back to see them, and of course, say hello! Hope to hear from you again soon!<3,Joy

    Wow, that sounds so very good. I too am a massive fan of banana bread and I can imagine that caramelised apples would go so well. Yum, yum, yum!

    I made banana bread yesterday for my boyfriend (I don't like bananas). Unfortunatly for him I decided to try a small bit and loved the recipe I baked! not sure what that says about the recipe though! He said it didn't have enought bananas in it. I will be giving this one ago sometime.

    This bread sounds and looks amazing! I've only made banana bread a couple of times and they've all turned out good but not GREAT. I can't wait to try this recipe!

    your bread looks so great! i actually snuck two extra granny smith apples in the grocery cart to make this bread again. although, i know i shouldn't… this bread is dangerous!! i could probably eat it all in one sitting. ps. you said nomtastic. you get extra awesome points for that ­čÖé

    Mmmm what nom-worthy slices!! Makes me want to bake this up again! Where, oh WHERE did you get the lovely white rack??! I'm developing a major crockery obsession – I keep noticing gorgeous plates, stands, and now racks in your pictures… so pretty! xx
