Banana bread is one of the first things I taught myself to bake. My fondness for bananas often leaves we with a couple of stranglers who are no longer suitable for direct consumption. This became an easy way to use up not so pleasant to look at bananas and have a tasty treat to go with my morning coffee.
Walnuts are a traditional addition to banana bread. I’m not a fan of nuts in baked goods so I rarely add them. I have been known to add a cup of chocolate chips though or even dried cranberries.
