Banana Bread is one of my favourite desserts. My Aunt Carmel Hands down makes the most delicious banana bread. I am not a baker I just love the idea of baking. For my kids I will still try to bake even if my cookies comes out too hard. My kids and hubby are always supportive and boost me up even when I know none of them will be eating the goods.
While searching endlessly on Pinterest for quick and simple recipe I found and adapted this one just a bit from Simply Recipes
