Homemade banana bread is great for two things – eating and filling your home with a delicious baked aroma.
Simple to make, this banana bread recipe tastes great and can be served on its own, warm with butter or in true dessert fashion with a sumptuous cream cheese frosting. Its basic nature also lends itself to add-ins, with walnuts, raisin, apple and other fruits able to combine seamlessly and deliciously with that rich banana flavouring!
