Best banana bread…ever
Although we’d already reached our weekend baking quota, Keith rescued some sorry-looking bananas from our housemate in order to bake some tasty banana bread.
Personally, I’ve never been a fan of the stuff. Keith convinced me to help him cook up a batch with the help of this thoroughly naughty banana bread recipe from Nigella Lawson. This version contained juicy sultanas soaked in bourbon (my boyfriend’s liquor of choice), pieces of chopped walnuts for a bit of a bite and a pack of chocolate chips for an extra bit of sweetness.
It was fairly easy to cook and produced a nice big loaf. It burned a little round the edges as our oven is highly unreliable, but we simply snipped those edges off. And here’s the end result:
I’m not sure it’s the tastiest looking cake in the world – but it filled the house with a wonderful smell and tasted absolutely delicious. As a non-banana lover, even I couldn’t get enough of it! My family seemed to enjoy it too, so this recipe will definitely be a permanent addition to my repertoire.
