Banana Bread

Banana BreadMy mom used to get a loaf of banana bread from Giant, a local grocery store in KL whenever we do grocery shopping at Ampang Point. I have never thought of making my own banana bread, not realizing how feasible it is to make a loaf of banana bread 😉 I was first introduced to making banana bread from scratch when I was at my sis’s place. A homemade banana bread is much much tastier than store-bought. In addition, you can add additional ingredients to add additional flavor such as nuts, choc chips, coconut flakes or even instant coffee!

The one I made above is half plain and half sunflower seeds banana bread. I had tried few banana bread recipes and after customizing some recipes a little bit, here’s the recipe that I have been using. It produces a moist, dense texture with sweetness from the banana and the brown sugar(only 2 tbsp if you use them).
