    Surprise!  It’s one of the rare occasion on Just One Cookbook to have baked recipes featured back to back.  I’ve been really busy lately and I haven’t had the time to write new Japanese recipes that I’ve cooked and photographed.

    With the busy schedule, I still try to find time to make and provide my children as much homemade snack as possible.  The Banana Bread I shared a while back is one of their favorites and I’ve given it a twist with this delicious Nutella Banana Bread.

    Back in August I won Grandpa’s Honey giveaway at Tutti Dolci.  I typically buy honey from Trader Joe’s but I had been looking for really good honey.  This honey was a wonderful discovery – the flavor is so rich, and it has smooth silky texture and has nice fragrance to it.

    Look at this beautiful golden color of honey… Hmmm, so good!

    I’m really hooked on this delicious honey and to thank Laura at Tutti Dolci for this gift, I made this Nutella Banana Bread with this honey, adapted from her Almond Butter Banana Bread.

    Can you smell the  Nutella and banana combo?  Yum…  Hope you will enjoy making this for your breakfast or tea time.

    I baked this bread in the morning but couldn’t photograph it before my daughter came home from her preschool.  After lunch, we did the photo shoot session together.  She was a pretty good assistant.  But she also insisted that her setting below be photographed and shared.  So here we go…
