Banana Bread, the quintessential comfort food.
Whether you’re baking a loaf to enjoy with your morning cup of coffee or serving it up as dessert at your next backyard BBQ, there’s something undeniably cozy and inviting about this old-fashioned staple.
Making a good loaf is truly an art form — too much banana and it’ll be dense and heavy but not sweet enough, no one will to eat it.
Can you say overripe bananas?
Let’s just stick with making sure we have the perfect ratio of buttery goodness for balanced sweetness (but not too sweet).
After all, that’s what makes Banana Bread so beloved.
14. Zucchini Bread
Zucchini bread for breakfast?
