Easy Banana Bread Recipe

Banana bread is the first thing I learnt how to bake all on my own as a pre-teen. This recipe is very straight forward and super easy to follow for children who are looking to be more independent in the kitchen or mums in need of a quick treat for tea or school snacks.

To jazz up the recipe, try toasting the slices of banana bread under the grill for 6 to 7 minutes, spread some maple butter on top and serve.
