Banana Bread is one of those versatile ‘cake’ recipes that can be served with a cuppa, eaten for breakfast or jazzed up with ice cream for dessert. It’s also great for some sneaky midnight snacking after you’re done watching ‘Mad Men’ at the 11 pm slot. Maybe Betty Draper kept some at hand in her kitchen too?
A recipe like this deserves to be easy, right? I hear you! My version of Banana Bread is so easy to whip up that all you need is a spatula. Yes, that’s right, no electric beaters, no fancy stand mixers required. There’s sweet golden honey that gets gently stirred with olive oil and then we just keep stirring and adding till we have a lovely, moist Banana Bread. Toasted walnuts add a wholesome crunch when they get folded right at the end. I might have toasted a little bit extra to chomp on while I was waiting for the oven buzzer to go off. Might have, maybe… Have I confessed too much today?
