What do you do when you have a tonne of spotty ripe bananas at home? Make warm, fluffy, moist and golden banana bread, of course.
The best thing about baking banana bread (aside from inhaling it) is the aroma that fills your house. The cinnamon, the caramelised bananas, the sweet scent of butter and sugar together at last... seriously, they need to candle that scent.
Chances are you feel like eating a thick slice right now, slathered in butter and a drizzle of honey. Well, you can. Here are some banana bread recipes for you to try.
