I would bake loaves of banana bread just for the delicious smell that wafts through the apartment when one is rising in the oven. But on top of that, nothing beats a slice of banana bread, toasted and buttered, in the earlyearly morning with a cup of good ol’ coffee (except for a bowl of cereal with raisins maybe.. but only maybe). You know, when you’ve just woken up and you’re not quite hungry for a hearty breakfast but you’re still craving a tiny little something? Well, in those times, banana bread is fan-freaking-tastic. Yes! And the bonus is that it’s so easy to make – you just mash up some ripe bananas, throw all the ingredients in a bowl and mix!
