to new adventures, on a rainy day.

we’ve made it to the middle of the week. little victories.

and I have a happy story. my favorite sweet treat at starbucks is the banana chocolate chip coffee cake. it’s decadent and amazing. well, a couple weeks ago I decided to splurge and order a slice. the barista [via the drive thru] informed me they didn’t carry it any longer. I don’t know if that’s true for all stores, but I was crushed. with coffee cake still on the brain.

preface: I don’t bake! I loved to help my grandma as a little girl. but as an adult, I’m just afraid. well starbucks gave me no choice. so yesterday, I took to the kitchen ..with fear & a lot of hope.

why I’ll never be a “baker”: my kitchen never has butter. never. as I was beginning my coffee cake, I was on the phone with my mom ..and when I told her I was missing a key ingredient [butter]. she laughed. and announced it wasn’t possible without.

well folks, I made a scrumptious coffee cake with NO butter. and I called my mom after my first bite to announce my victory!

I am so happy with my delicious, decadent, butter-less coffee cake. so much so ..I’ll be sharing the recipe [and step-by-step pictures] on the blog next tuesday!

peanut butter banana coffee cake.


it pays to step outside of your comfort zone!

happy wednesday!
