This honey banana bread is made in a special bundt pan. We call this our Jesus Cake.
We call this Jesus Cake because it is a great way to teach the kids about the true meaning of Christmas. It is a banana bread that I baked in a special Bundt pan. We put candles on it and sing happy birthday to Jesus. When you are finished singing happy birthday, eat it for breakfast, dessert or as a snack with coffee. I cant think of an easier and tastier way to celebrate the meaning of Christmas.
Right now it just requires a dusting of powdered sugar. When my grandson gets old enough I will let him and the other kids come over for Christmas and decorate it any way they like.
