When I had just started to be interested in Instagram and I was taking my first steps in the world of foodbloggers, I remember that I kept seeing photos of banana bread all over the Internet. One day I decided to make it and realized that the famous banana bread is nothing but a delicious banana cake (the reason why it’s called “bananabread” is beyond me xD).
If you haven’t tried it yet, you should definitely do it because it’s absolutely delicious. Believe me when I tell you that there’s nothing better than starting the day with a slice of banana bread covered with peanut butter –> #foodporn.
With my recipe you will get a very soft cake that tastes like banana and caramel (my mouth is literally watering while I wright this!). So now go and get the ingredients! The recipe is waiting for you!
- 1 1/2 cup bananas the riper the better
- 1/2 cup maple syrup
