I was just writing a piece about Hawaii for the Boston Globe and started craving banana bread. Unfortunately I don’t have a knock-your-socks-off recipe, and no bakery in San Francisco does my favorite sweet bread like the aunties of Hawaii. Hint hint, fine bakers of the Bay Area!
Well what’s a girl who doesn’t have time to dive into Pinterest for recipe ideas to do?
Host a banana bread recipe contest!
You read right. I am looking for your favorite banana bread recipe–your tried and true; the one your kids beg for, or that forces you to inhale the whole loaf in one go, you know what I’m talking about.
Here’s the details:
Deadline: November 1, 2013.
Send your best banana bread recipes to me via Pinterest, my Facebook author page, or as a comment to this post. I will test out the recipes at my Backroads and Byways Hawaii book release party at Badger Books in San Francisco on November 3 at 4pm (let me know when you submit your recipe if want to bake a loaf and bring it to the party!).
The yummiest recipe (selected by partygoers that night, and announced on November 6, 2013) will get a free signed copy of my new Backroads and Byways of Hawaii, and a free consultation about a Hawaii itinerary, including hotels, restaurants, and of course the best places to score banana bread.
