No matter how many times I bake more and more banana bread and try a new recipe, every time my friend tests it, she always says that this was the best banana bread that I baked in my entire life so far, and no other recipe can surpass that. Please don't look at the picture, as I mentioned, this is one of the very first recipes - and pictures - of my life, if I remember correctly I have a childhood sweater tied around a column as a background. If you like the recipe, I promise I’ll make it again in the near future and try to shoot a more aesthetic picture of it.
