Banana Bread

Do you always (like me) let a couple of bananas go bad without noticing? Well this is a recipe for you, a no-fail banana bread recipe – promise! Its deliciously crusty on the outside & equally fluffy and moist on the inside. I can tell you that every time I have made this for my family or friends it has disappeared before the afternoon is over! It can also double as a (very) cheeky breakfast item with some nut or fruit butter! It’s the perfect homemade house warming gift also.

Enjoy & let me know what you think!
