There was only one problem. I really didn't want an ordinary banana bread. After some debating with myself I decided to throw in some frozen mixed berries. I think the berries add a little tartness that is a nice change :)
The kids loved it too! But anytime I bake it is a special treat. I am still not completely comfortable with baked goods. Quick breads, cookies, and muffins seem to work out good for me though so who knows, maybe sometime soon I will begin to work on my baking skills.
