You don’t need any other banana bread recipe than this one. It is simple and extremely adaptable to many different creative ideas. There are two variations that you can consider. First, is what razzle dazzle do you want to add to the batter. You can check your pantry and see what sort of goodies you might have to make it special. Reese’s Pieces, raisins, different types of nuts, chopped up candy bars, chocolate chips, all work very well with this recipe.
The next variable you can explore is adding a topping. With about 10 minutes or so in the baking, you can take the banana bread out of oven (do this quickly) and add some chopped nuts, a drizzle of maple sugar or honey, perhaps- whatever seems interesting.
