Super Simple Soaked Banana Bread
Everybody Loves Banana Bread!
There are few recipes I can think of that are as crowd pleasing as banana bread. My family loves bananas, and I always save the over ripe ones in my freezer. As soon as my freezer is overflowing with bananas, I do one thing.. make banana bread!
I always make two loaves. Usually one with nuts and one without, because my family's loves for nuts in banana bread is split 50/50.
If you think that soaked banana bread is harder to make than regular banana bread… it's not! It's quite easy and a great recipe for the amateur and experienced bakers alike.
My favorite way to serve banana bread is slightly warm and slathered in real butter, but it's perfectly acceptable served at room temperature. And my favorite thing about this recipe is that it's just as good for dessert as it is for breakfast.
