Adding The Yum to Yummy!

I remember a long time ago finding a candy bar in the cabinet and that sparking an entire conglomeration of ingredients mixed into some wonderful crazy tasting muffins.

Well, that “spark” flew again, but this time with a bunch of very ripe bananas.

So when I went searching for ingredients, I found a box of Krusteaz banana nut muffin mix, some Crisco butter flavored shortening, Karo light corn syrup and chopped pecans. We have a Winner!! Those ingredients, mixed with a few more ingredients equal YUMMY!! Moist (did I say, moist?) Double Banana Pecan Bread

This may not sound like a “different” type of recipe for Banana bread, but hey, it’s good, trust me!! If you like lots of banana flavor and small chunks of banana and pecans, this recipe is for you!!

Perhaps, you have had a similar “spark” before. Simply comment below. Let me know anytime that “spark”occurs!
