The Perfect Banana Bread

Now that the weather has taken a turn for the chilly and very windy I have put my baking hat on again. I love banana bread, but banana bread recipes are tricky. They are usually too dry or either way too sweet or not quite sweet enough. The day after I tried a new recipe (which ended up being disappointing) I saw Steph’s post. I bookmarked it and made a point of making sure I had all of the ingredients. This is the last recipe I will ever try, it is absolutely perfect. Just the right hint of sweet, and spice and if you can manage to wait (which is next to impossible) until the next day they are even more moist and perfect. I admit I am not patient, so instead of making a loaf, I made muffins. They took me 17 minutes to bake, but do check them sooner as I know for a fact my oven is awful and never is quite accurate. This recipe made 20 muffins which truth be told didn’t last long at all. Oh, and I didn’t have any hazlenuts, so I swapped out pecans and they were great. The kids love having their own little banana bread cakes and seriously they are the most amazing banana bread muffins. Here is the recipe, go on, try them. You won’t regret it.

    Hi Jennifer! Thank you for that! I’m always glad of an excuse to try a new banana loaf. Hope all’s well with you my dear. I keep meaning to send you a proper long email. This week is a big one so I’ll write after that with an update. Loads of love, Amanda xxx

    Brilliant! I have plans to make zucchini bread tomorrow and, thanks to you, I’m going to bake them in a muffin pan. The girls are gonna love it.

  3. When we lived in Indonesia, our maid made wonderful banana bread. I like the idea of doing it as muffins, so you have a set portion, rather than ‘accidentally’ cutting a very large slice!!
