Hi, I’m Terri Turco with Expert Village, and
now the final frontier. You have your banana bread that you can enjoy at home, all by yourself.
You can add cream cheese to it–however you like your banana bread. Or, you can be a really,
really nice person, and give a loaf to someone else. So, once again, we’re going to use these
nice plastic bags. They’re not really jiffy lock bags, these are decorative bags that
you get at the craft stores, you can get that at fabric stores in the craft departments.
They’re really versatile; you can use them with so many different packaging goods. To
package banana bread is so easy, you can practically do it in your sleep. You just slip it in this
little package, easy peasy, it’s so moist, that’s why it’s sticking. But moist is a good
thing for bread; you don’t want your bread to be dry. And notice how good it fits in
there? It’s really nice. And then you want to just bunch it so it gets all those air
bubbles out of there, because you don’t want it to dry out. And then you can take a little
piece of ribbon, and tie the top. And if you’re really getting creative and really want to
personalize it a step more, there’s a couple different things you can do. What I do, is
sometimes you can just get on your computer, and you just print people’s names off that
you’re giving it to. And you can always make it look like a nametag. And I think, I’m going
to give this bread to Pamela, okay? So I printed out her name on the computer, which was easy
peasy to do. And then I just made these little tag marks with a magic marker. You just, you
know, outline it with a ruler, and it looks pretty professional, I think. And then just
take a little paper punch, and put a little punch in the corner, and then just take that
decorative ribbon. Slide it in, and in just a matter of seconds, you’ve got a really pretty,
personalized, batch of banana bread, for Pamela. Now if you want to go a step further, you
can take those stick ’em’s from the business center that you get. These are just little
stick-it–and then you just write banana bread on there. And just in case Pamela doesn’t
know what kind of bread it is, you just write banana bread, and have it come right off.
Put it on a side–oop, let me put on there straight for you. And you are all set to give
a personalized gift of banana bread to Pamela. I hope you really enjoy this banana bread
recipe. I have made it time and time again and my friends and family absolutely love
it. So, when you have a minute, make a quick loaf of banana bread. I know you’re going
to love it.
