best banana bread
Let’s not kid ourselves, it’s really banana cake, isn’t it?
The humble banana bread – a staple in every Australian cafe. It’s a great way to use up blackened bananas, it’s very easy to make and it’s incredibly yummy when toasted (for extra decadence add ricotta and honey). I’ve been making it for years but I like to experiment with different recipes every now and then. This yummy one came via a friend who gifted us a freshly baked loaf a few days after Percy was born. Give a new mum banana bread and she’ll be your friend for life – promise.
I often make this for a lunchbox treat, usually on a Sunday afternoon or evening (if dinner is cooking I’ll whip it up in between chopping vegies). We enjoyed it this afternoon with tea. I predict I’ll be making another loaf by Wednesday.
