If I was to ask you what your favourite smell to come home to was, I bet at least half of you would say banana bread baking in the oven. Am I right? What if you could have the smell of raspberry & chocolate chip banana bread baking instead? I hope I have your attention now!
The humble banana bread was originally created as a way to use up over-ripe bananas at the end the 1930s, where households were unwilling to throw anything away. Even now, if we have brown, speckled bananas at home, then 80% of the time it will be used to create a yummy banana bread (the other 20% is of course freezing them to make delicious smoothies).
Banana bread is one of the most underrated baked goods. It’s the perfect breakfast, dessert or snack, can be eaten straight away or toasted, and uses up all your brown, speckled bananas!
