If the hair and fashion from the 80’s wasn’t bad enough, I’m starting to introduce the kids to classics from then. And with that, realizing that the 80’s were seriously messed up. But I’m sure every decade and generation has their own issues. 80’s movies were bad. Name one that was good… besides Goonies because you can’t possibly argue that it was bad. Okay, it kind of was but I still love it.

This weekend I watched ET with the kids. I figured it’d been 20 some odd years or so since I’d last seen it and it’s a classic, so why not? I remembered the general idea around it, but nothing specific. It was pretty dark for being a PG movie.

While it will and always be a classic that I think everyone should probably see. I’m going to throw it into the category with Bambi, Old Yeller, etc… Generally not a fan and not entirely kid friendly… for being ‘kid’ movies.

So this bread… If you’ve never made English muffin bread, you really need to. If I’m given the choice between toast or an English muffin, I’ll always choose an English muffin. I love the flavor and how butter creates little puddles in the nooks and crannies. So good!

That is of course unless there is English muffin bread because it’s the perfect blend of both!

I’ve made two versions before and decided it was time to make a fruity version. This English muffin bread is packed with banana flavor and bursting with fresh blueberries! The perfect addition to breakfast, brunch or snack time. Toast a slice and slather it with butter or your favorite jam!

You need this banana blueberry English muffin bread in your life! Be sure to add it to your must make list!
