Go bananas over this sweet, sweet bread because today is National Banana Bread Day! There’s no better way to celebrate “National Banana Bread Day” than by baking a quick loaf. Celebrate with others around the nation with this delicious baked good.

Banana bread is a sweet, cakelike bread which contains mashed bananas. Banana bread is a quick bread which typically uses baking soda as the leavening agent instead of yeast. Rather than dough, the bread is baked from a thick batter, which does not require kneading.

Banana bread first became a standard feature of American cookbooks with the popularization of baking soda and baking powder in the 1930s (and appears in Pillsbury’s 1933 Balanced Recipes cookbook). The first banana bread recipe was thought to have been created by William Swanson. The home baking revival of the 1960s and the simplicity of its recipe led to an explosion in banana bread’s popularity. The cookbooks of the 1960s added to its popularity because they commonly listed multiple variations of bread that added fruits and nuts.

Banana bread is very popular at bake sales and has become one of the most common items for sale for breakfast in cafés in Australia but the loaf is often less dense than in North America.

January 12 – National Glazed Donut Day

 

Today is National Glazed Donut Day!

While no one really knows when donuts were invented or who invented them. Doughnuts were originally made as a long twist of dough, not in the ring form that is most common these days. It was also common in England for donuts to be made in a ball shape and injected with Jam after they were cooked, this is still very common in England. The ring donut common to America just seemed to appear, but an American, Hansen Gregory, claimed to have invented it in 1847 when he was traveling on a steam boat. He was not satisfied with the texture of the center of the donut so he pressed a hole in the center with the ship’s pepper box.

• Doughnut vs. Donut? There has been much debate among experts as to whether “doughnut” or “donut” is the proper spelling. “Doughnut” is actually proper, but “donut” is acceptable. If you look in older dictionaries, you’ll only find “doughnut.” However, the Merriam-Webster dictionary now lists “donut” as a variant of “doughnut.” Either way you spell it, they’re still delicious!

• The first Friday in June is designated as National Doughnut Day.

• In the U.S. alone, more than 10 billion donuts are made every year.

• Per capita, Canada has more donut shops than any other country.

• Adolph Levitt invented the first donut machine in 1920.

• The US donut industry is worth 3.6 billion dollars.

October 29 – National Oatmeal Day

 

It’s National Oatmeal Day!

I don’t remember eating a lot of oatmeal as a kid. I don’t even eat a lot of oatmeal now. I know it’s healthy and I should. It’s filling and low in calories and makes the perfect breakfast or snack food, it’s also delicious baked in cookies.

The mascot for the Quaker Oats Company is The Quaker Man. He is the oldest advertising mascot in America. He was registered as the first trademark for a breakfast cereal in 1877. The character purposely embodies the values of the Quaker faith—honesty, integrity, and purity. Enjoy National Oatmeal Day and celebrate its history and tastiness!
