Fabulous Banana Bread


I know I have more than my fair share of banana bread recipes on this blog yet I get excited by a different one. Also, according to me, banana bread is a good indicator of people’s baking skills and recipe expertise. If even their banana bread recipe doesn’t work, it is safe to assume nothing else will.

Why I like this dish?

This is one of the softest and most moist banana bread I have ever come across. It manages to hold its shape yet melt in your mouth. It has a beautiful blend of the sweetness from the sugar and bananas and the smooth flavour from the butter. Just try it and you will know what I mean. Don’t go by the pictures. They surely need an update but the bread is simply fabulous.
