Not too long ago a co worker brought in some banana bread that he made from a recipe that used brown butter rather than melted butter. Forgetting to ask him where he found the recipe I just took my banana bread recipe and browned half of the the butter ! It adds a complex rich and nutty flavor - why didn't I think of that ?!
