The 23rd of February is Banana Bread Day.
It’s incredible how many people just let Banana Bread Day whiz right on by, without knowing what day it was. Life has just gotten too crazy!
Even stale banana bread is good, toasted and smeared with butter, or dipped in egg and milk and fried up as French toast.
If you’re really on the run today, you can always just try to pick up a slice of banana bread in your travels — or even a banana muffin!
The earliest reference to a Banana Bread Day in February that CooksInfo has found in print archives dates from 2000 in New Hampshire:
“The 23rd [of February] gave us National Banana Bread Day, so my wife finally cooked up all the rotten bananas she’s been saving in the fridge with a clear conscience.” (Jacobs, Larry. Talk about big days, and each important! Nashua, New Hampshire: The Sunday Telegraph. 27 February 2000. Page D-2, col. 2.)
