Port Wine Banana Bread
Can you tell I am on a roll making recipes with this delicious Ficklin Vineyards Tinta Port Wine? LOL! We thankfully brought home a few bottles after our last visit to Yosemite Madera County. This is a wine I try to keep in the house as often as possible.
Did you see the Carrot Cake with Pineapple, Coconut, and Port Wine I made earlier this week? Hello YUM!!!! Oh my goodness it was so good. After this recipe, I decided to dive into this port wine banana bread recipe.
I adapted the recipe from an email Ficklin Vineyards sent out to their subscribers. You guys they have the most amazing recipes! I look forward to their emails coming into my inbox! Which is saying something when I have been on an unfollow delete mission the past few weeks we have been stuck at home.
One bonus of being home for weeks on end has been playing with recipes. I have done more dishes than I thought was possible but it is so worth it with all of the homemade food we are preparing. I hope that you have been enjoying all of the new recipes we are sharing.
We have at least one more Tinta Port Wine Recipe coming up which is Crockpot Braised Beef Short Ribs. I cooked them low and slow in the crockpot and oh boy I think you are going to love them!
Can you tell how much we love Ficklin Vineyards? It is one of our favorite stops on the Madera Wine Trail. The wine trail guides you to a ton of great wineries that are located in Madera County, California. You can find great wineries in Madera, Oakhurst, and surrounding areas.
What we love about Ficklin Vineyards is it has been family owned for three generations. When you visit the tasting room everyone is so excited to share their wines with you. I went into our first tasting not really knowing anything about Port Wines and left a huge fan!
We have been working with Yosemite Madera County as ambassadors for the past year. While we can't travel there right now I am enjoying cooking and baking with some of the wine we brought home during our last few trips.
Banana Bread with Port Wine

This port wine banana bread took about 60 minutes to bake in our ovens which is what I normally find with our classic banana bread. You may want to check your bread after 45-55 minutes depending on how hot your oven runs.
We also made Tinta Port Braised Short Ribs which are epic and delicious!
