Banana Nut Bread for #BundtBakers

020

I love Bundt pans.

Did I mention that I collect them?

My family will ask what I want for Christmas, Mothers Day, my birthday or other gift giving holidays.  I tell them, give me a bundt pan that I don’t have. They know they cant go wrong with a bundt pan.

In fact, while I was at the thrift store I came across a vintage one. I squealed in delight and everyone came running to see what was wrong. I felt rather embarrassed but I was so pleased, I couldn’t contain myself.

Monkey Girl just stood there rolling her eyes.

Teenagers!

It is getting increasingly hard to find new bundt pans because I have just about all of them.

So it should be no surprise to you that I am a part of a Bundt club.

It is called Bundt Bakers. I love this group because it is a creative way for me to use my bundt pans.

#BundtBakers is a group of Bundt loving bakers who get together once a month to bake Bundts with a common ingredient or theme. Follow our Pinterest board right here.

We take turns hosting each month and choosing the theme/ingredient.

If you are a food blogger and would like to join us, just send an email to Stacy at foodlustpeoplelove@gmail.com or ask to join our private Facebook Group.

This month, for the inaugural edition of #BundtBakers, our theme and ingredient of choice is NUTS.  We’ve got almonds and walnuts, pistachios and hazelnuts and lots of pecans! All baked into delicious Bundt cakes.

    I’m with you, Vonnie! One can never have too many, or enough, Bundt pans. I love going through thrift shops for new ones and I have to admit, I squeal too!

    I don’t know why I’ve been baking banana bread in a bread pan all these years. So silly! Yours looks gorgeous in a Bundt!

    I am so glad we all decided to keep baking Bundts together!

    I always look for Bundt pans at thrift stores, too. Your banana bread looks fantastic! I want to smear some cream cheese on it and have it for breakfast.

    I probably don’t have as many bundts as you do, but considering that I’ve never tried to collected them, I’m a bit surprised that I have so many. I do love your cake and think that nuts is banana bread (or cake) is one of my favorite combinations.

    Oh, I totally get that squeal of delight upon finding a good price on a bundt. My collection is slowly growing, and I am having to be quite imaginative with egards to storing them. I do love a good banana nut bread, and this one looks so good.

I love those lucky days! This banana bundt looks pretty amazing, especially with that sweet little drizzle of glaze! : )
