I always get sad when I see someone has been “orphaned” in the Secret Recipe Club. My group’s reveal isn’t until next Monday, but I saw today someone in group D was orphaned—the person who was supposed to make a recipe from their site didn’t.
I hopped over to the site, Colie’s Kitchen, and determined immediately I could make something from there. Because there were SO MANY good-looking and simple dishes!
Nicole is a married full-time college student, stepmom to a tween, and still wants to get dinner on the table each night. She hates to clean, so we have that in common. If she DOES clean, we might not share that …
Anyway, I saw this recipe for Nilla Wafer Banana Bread and was entranced. But alas, Nilla wafers aren’t something I keep in the house and I just went to the grocery store. I did, however, just pick up a box of graham crackers. Close enough! I just subbed in the graham crackers and added a little vanilla extract for good measure.
This bread is phenomenal. And you know how they tell you to make chocolate chip cookies when you have a house showing? They are wrong. Make this bread instead. It infused our whole apartment with amazing banana bread scent. I wasn’t even hungry but I couldn’t resist cutting off a slice from the popping-hot loaf and it did not disappoint. The graham crackers add an interesting flavor that’s not usually in banana bread.
Thank you, Nicole, for this awesome recipe! It’s one I will make often.
