Banana Bread
Serves 12
Banana bread is a quick and easy bread made from ripe bananas. The ripe bananas make the bread sweet so we could reduce the sugar by half. In this recipe, the brown sugar gives a caramelized flavor. Use a mixture of ripe bananas and fresh bananas to get chunks of banana baked into your loaf.
