DIVINE BANANA BREAD

My friends and family say that this is the best that they have ever had!, it is bursting with the flavor and goodness of bananas, even if you have never baked before ,I promise you it is so great you would want to make it again and again...

The key is to use over-ripe bananas or bananas that are past-it, you can use the batter for muffins too.This bread is very soft & moist and will remain so even after several days, though it doesn't last more than half an hour in my home!

The best part is that during baking my entire house fills up with a to-die-for heavenly aroma!

Ingredients-

(makes 1 medium-sized loaf), (serves-6 :only in theory)

  • Refined flour(maida)- 1 cup

Hi Bindiya
When i tried this for the first time, my home filled with its to-die-for aroma... and when i tasted it I kept congratulating myself and smsd the whole world. Ofcourse I thanked you also. Now this has become a regular item on any get-together. And this with ice-cream is mind blowing. All your recipes are very easy to follow ones. Keep up the good work.
