Go Bananas on Mother’s Day

Mother’s Day can be celebrated so many different ways. Perhaps your mom prefers a hike in the mountains or a relaxing morning out at her favorite brunch spot or a quiet slumber at home with breakfast in bed. James Beard Award semi-finalist Chef Bruce Moffett of Good Food on Montford in Charlotte has a recipe ideal for almost any Mother’s Day plan.

Katrina Moffett, Chef Moffett’s wife, shared a recipe for Banana Bread that has been a family favorite for more than 50 years. The moist banana-packed loaf can be wrapped in foil for a day in the mountains, an afternoon on the beach or can be dressed up and served as they do at Good Food on Montford with a topping of Macadamia Ice Cream and Goat’s Milk Dulce de Leche from Executive Chef Larry Schreiber for a decadent dessert at home. Bake the bread in a large loaf pan and shingle the slices on the plate with the ice cream and dulce de leche or break the batter up into a muffin tin or smaller loaf pans for individual servings.
