We all have that one recipe that you know you cannot mess up, it always comes out perfect, and we never want to try another recipe. Well this banana loaf recipe is that type of recipe. I absolutely adore this recipe and it is so easy and quick to make. It's great for afternoon tea, when you have guests over, or a new neighbor. So enjoy the smell of warm banana loaf coming from your kitchen.
