Moist Banana Bread Recipe with photos.
If you happen to have overly ripened banana, this bread is a great way to use them. Moist Banana Bread belongs to American cuisine and came in vogue after easy availability of baking soda and baking powder.
Originally, banana bread was once more of a bread depending on yeast for rising. But later recipes calls for baking powder and baking soda and this bread has more of a cake like texture.
Honestly, I don’t like bananas. But, I love nibbling soft and mildly banana flavoured bread. It’s an amazing snack after early dinner or around tea-time. Of course, it is healthy for kids. Sometimes, I fix my over ripened and sweet banana in banana shake too, sometimes I prefer banana bread.
