I wonder who is the genius who invented banana bread? It’s like great excuse for us to have cake for breakfast!!!! While I am aware that banana bread is healthier- with no butter usually and made with milk and oil, it tastes awesome toasted as well. Genius I say!
I’m excited when I see bananas for sure at a slightly more decent price. Yup. Excited over simple bananas. Well, it was selling for AU$15 a kg and some places even at $18/kg at its peak. For the past few months, bananas are a TREAT.
Due to good weather, bananas are finally more affordable, going at around $6/kg for the past few weeks. It was nice, just being able to afford a bunch of bananas rather than just 1 or 2.
Now, you would think that we would be generous and share this bake with our friends-like we usually do. Hubby turned around and said, let’s savour this one for ourselves..it’s not a big loaf plus we haven’t had any for ages! Well said I think.. it fridged really well too- just require a handy toaster to heat it up again for an awesome treat.
