… Banana Bread – easy and peasy …

Banana bread is like a must have item in Australian cafes. The most evil way to enjoy your banana bread is to ask the staff at the cafe to “toast” your banana bread which he or she would butter up the slice and toast it with a sandwich press. In that way your slice would be hot, buttery and crispy on both sides, which has just brought banana bread to another level (lol)

Banana bread is in fact not hard to be made at home; the key is to have 2-3 very ripe bananas at home. The quickest way is to blend the bananas into puree and mix everything together before throwing it into the oven. Even if you don’t have a blender, you can do it with a potato masher. Easy peasy 🙂
