Snickerdoodle Banana Bread


 
I seem to be making a lot of Veronica's recipes lately.  Veronica, I promise, I am not stalking you, you just make awesome food. 
 
 I was floored when I saw that she made like 26 banana breads, just to find the perfect one. 
 
Wow, that's dedication.
 
This woman is a baker. She takes the time to perfect recipes.  She's won many, many state fair awards for her cakes, breads and cookies.  Veronica is really my go-to person when I need a dessert to make.
 
Even though this Snickerdoodle Banana Bread didn't get enough votes to be her favorite, I knew that it would still be absolutely fantastic.  It was.  The flavor was fantastic and everyone loved it!!
  
 

 
 
 Veronica has a heart of gold and has been on a mission lately.  Just this week, she hosted an online auction for Suzie. Suzie has numerous health issues and is struggling financially to pay medical bills. Veronica is a such a super friend, she is trying just about everything to help Suzie pay her bills. Her online auction generated over $1400 to help Suzie.
 

 
Ok, so I mentioned State Fair awards.  Did you know that her carrot cake won for Best All Around Cake at the Kansas City State Fair?  Out of ALL the cakes, this one was the best.  Not to mention the blue ribbon. Oh yea, I knew this had to be good.  I made 2 of these cakes for a potluck and they scraped the plates clean and asked for more.
 
Seriously, you HAVE to get the recipe and make this cake. I promise you won't be disappointed.  Want to know how to get the Best Carrot Cake in the world recipe??
 
 
 
Veronica has found a way to make even more money for Suzie. She is asking for a minimum $5 donation for Suzie in exchange for this Blue Ribbon Sweepstakes Carrot Cake recipe. 
 
When you have your family dinners this holiday season and want an impressive dessert; THIS is the one that you want on your table. So please, please check out this post at Veronica's Cornucopia to get the details for where to send your donation and how to get the recipe for this award winnig carrot cake!
