Dry Ingredients:

  3. Add all your dry ingredients to a medium sized bowl & whisk to combine.
  4. Add all your wet ingredients a large bowl & mix until combined.
  5. Pour your dry ingredients into your wet & mix until just combined.
  6. Pour your batter into your pan & smooth with a spoon so that it is evenly distributed. Top with additional lemon zest.
  7. Bake for 35 minutes or until a toothpick comes out clean & your edges are golden brown. Enjoy!

  1. Hi Kelly, I love your recipes and enjoy the pictures of your puppy. I cannot eat bananas, I’m wondering, since you use them frequently, if there’s an alternative to use in place of the bananas. Thank you and keep up the good work.
