In the life of a banana, the time between "perfectly ripe" and "overripe" can be but a fleeting moment. That's why God invented banana bread. And that's just the beginning: Transform your past-prime fruit into first-rate muffins, cakes, cupcakes, cookies, waffles, and more.
Pumpkin and spices, sage and browned
butter: Fall's classic flavor combinations
come together beautifully in these little
loaves. The browned butter lends a rich
nuttiness to the breads, which strike a
perfect sweet-and-savory balance.
