Classic Banana Bread, the perfect snack or dessert bread. A delicious sweet loaf.
Classic Banana Bread, one of the Italian’s favourites, just how he likes it, no crumb topping, no frosting, nothing fancy!
Lately I have been making desserts more to my liking, Cinnamon Apple Cheesecake, then to his. So he asked me the other day if I remembered that delicious banana bread I used to make? “Remember, just bananas, look we even have some in the fruit bowl”?
I have a husband who in the morning has a big mug of caffè latte and he dunks anything and pretty well everything in it. Believe me it took me ages to get used to that.
Whenever I make Sweet Loaf Breads or Muffins and I hear splash, my next question is “Did you actually taste that”? And believe it or not he does, he even knows if it was too dry or too moist. Sure he does!
Classic Banana bread is a fast and easy sweet bread for anyone and everyone who wants and needs a classic sometime or anytime, great with a cup of coffee or tea.
Or if you are like me, a little butter doesn’t hurt. I have actually heard whispered behind my back “would you like some banana bread with that butter”? Enjoy!
