my favorite banana bread

I’ve always been a little afraid of banana bread – too banana-y, too sickly sweet. But I’ve made some killer loaves, ones with chocolate chips and cinnamon topping, one flavoured with rum, a vegan version with cocoa and coconut, another with espresso, and one with candied ginger. But I’ve never made just plain ol’ banana bread. Something to let the warmth of banana shine. So when it rained all day yesterday and the sky was grey and dark, it seemed like a good time to experiment.

My husband, who loves all things banana, loved this loaf. A lot. And so did I. A banana hater yes, but a banana bread lover most definitely! This is exactly what you want on a rainy night and it plays so nicely with a cup of coffee on a cool September morning. Yes, this is my new favourite banana bread and I hope it becomes yours too.

    I love trying new banana bread recipes, can’t wait to try this one! I have a freezer full of bananas. I remember making your banana bread with rum ages ago, right after I had discovered the world of food blogs! What a flashback!

    Can’t wait to try this recipe, during the winter I make a loaf about once a week. Sounds delicious!

    Amanda, I always love trying out new recipes too! There’s so many variations for bb & this one is definitely a good start. That rum one though, it’s a favourite too!

    RMW, it’s been a while for me too. Hope you love this.

    Thanks Cheri!

    Thanks Keto!

    Pamela, I hope you love this one.

    Sorry Bill for the late response, but you can use soured milk (milk with a teaspoon of vinegar) or sour cream.
