Use up those overripe bananas to make the Best Banana Bread ever! The addition of low-fat yogurt makes for an extra moist banana bread without adding too many calories. Try this easy loaf cake recipe and be prepared to fall in love!
I'm sorry I wasn't able to post new recipes over the past few days. Those have been quite eventful. My boyfriend had some health issues and we had to take him to the hospital. Fortunately, he is fine now. And as if it wasn't enough, my DSLR's battery charger broke down so that I wasn't able to take any pics.
So I decided to share with you this awesome banana bread recipe I found on CookingLight.com. Luckily I already had some pictures I took a few weeks ago. This easy banana bread is perfectly moist on the inside and has a little crunchy on the outside. Absolutely the best banana bread I have ever had.
I bake a loaf of this perfect banana bread at least twice a month, it's that good. Plus, it comes together in no time at all.
Beware, this moist and fluffy banana bread is really addictive. I could personally eat the entire banana bread loaf in one day. To avoid this unfortunate situation, I usually slice the entire loaf of banana bread and freeze it right away. Here is how I do it:
In a freezer bag, put two slices, then a wax paper square, another two slices and continue until bag is full.
This is the perfect way to control your banana bread intake and it also makes this delicious loaf cake lasts longer.
Whenever you're craving for banana bread, just take 2 slices out of your freezer and microwave them on low power for less than 1 minute. If you don't have a microwave, just let the cake slices come to room temperature for a few hours. This banana bread is as good defrosted as right out the oven.
To get the Best Banana Bread ever, make sure to use very ripe bananas. That's what gives great flavors to your loaf.
You should try this easy loaf cake recipe as soon as possible, you're house will smell amazing and you're going to love this banana bread!
