Banana Bread Recipe…

I am sure you have all been waiting for Dana`s recipe (from Danaeats) for this month and it couldn`t be better….banana bread, yum!

The Ultimate Banana Bread

In my home, I always have to have something sweet on my kitchen counter. There’s something about having a freshly baked pastry or cake in your kitchen that just makes a home feel more cozy. For me, that’s usually banana bread. There’s something about banana bread that I just can’t get enough of. It’s the ultimate comfort food. The moisture of the bread, the flavour from the banana and the butter (I apologise in advance if you’re on a diet),  and the smell that comes out of the oven while it’s baking. It’s all pure joy.

I love experimenting with different recipes of banana bread because there are hundreds of versions and I’ve been on a mission to find the perfect one. I think I can finally rest and declare that this is my favourite banana bread recipe. It has everything you need from banana bread.. the moistness on the inside, and the crunch on the outside. I’ve finally found the one and I’m so excited to share it with all of you. The best part of this recipe is that it barely needs any equipment, so even those with the barest of kitchens can make it. All you need is a fork, a bowl, and a whisk. Serve while still hot from the oven and I promise there won’t be any leftovers. Enjoy!
