Nutty banana bread

Spread on some butter an dig in.

This tasty banana bread has to be one of the easiest recipes out there. It’s simply a matter of throwing everything into a bowl and mixing it all together! You can add a splash of maple syrup if you want that extra rich sweetness in there, or, once cooked, cut yourself a slice while it’s still warm and drizzle and little maple syrup over the top. The syrup soaks into the cake, making it even more moist and delicious that before. Sure it’s a little indulgent, but definitely worth it! Keep the cake wrapped tightly in cling wrap and store in the fridge for up to a week.
