Hazelnut Cream Banana Bread
By: Pam - Brockport, PA - Recipe Contest 2015
"Even though mom made the best banana bread in the world, I decided to twist it up a bit and modernize it. The addition of hazelnut flavored coffee and chopped hazelnuts makes it a dream to eat alone, or with a freshly brewed cup of Door County Hazelnut Creme Coffee."
This is a Door County Coffee Fan recipe. It was not made in the kitchens of the Door County Coffee Café.
Featured ingredient: Hazelnut Creme Coffee 10 oz. Bag Ground
