Banana Loaf – The Baking Duck

Banana Loaf

One thing I have seen a lot of while being in quarantine is Banana Bread and do not get me wrong, Banana bread is great.

However, I decided I wanted to do something different with my bananas. Something different but still full of that banana taste.

I do not like bananas (shock I know) but again my boyfriend’s parents like them and this idea came from his mum.

Our bananas were turning a bit, but you can use fresh bananas in this recipe. The bananas need to be mashed so there are no lumps left.

I really like doing loaf cakes lately because they can be so versatile and can take any flavours. You can do a drizzle top on this loaf cake.

I cut up another banana and added it to the top of cake batter before I baked it but you can just add some banana chips to the top if you prefer.
