This banana bread recipe is my all-time favorite. It is always the first recipe that I reach out to when I have a few ripe bananas.
It’s easy to make banana bread. This recipe has only a few simple steps, with basic ingredients that you can find in your pantry. I added some maple syrup to the mashed bananas before combining them in the batter. This simple step adds a wonderful richness to the already flavorful banana bread.
Banana bread freezes well and always comes in handy when, my daughter Miss C comes back from school hungry. One minute in the toaster and she has absolutely delicious afternoon tea on her plate.
I love adding chopped nuts (walnut or pecan are my favorites) or oatmeal to the batter to give it an extra layer of texture. A light sprinkle of ground nutmeg or cinnamon is also a great addition.
