The best banana bread recipe is here! You just need 10 minutes to make it and after 20 minutes in the oven you will have the best banana bread that you have ever seen in your life. Enjoy it!

Comfort cakes are my favorite, no doubt about that! Those that remind us about our granny’s have a very special place in my heart.

This recipe for banana bread, I learned many years ago from a mother of a friend. My friend Camille and I used to be inseparable and on weekends, after a night out, I used to sleep at her house. I confess that my favorite part was always the breakfast we had the next morning.

Her mommy, Mrs Sonia, used be a very good cook and she is the one who is mainly responsible for many of my favorites recipes that I have kept today. But I have to say that her banana cake ( banana bread if you prefer ), is on top of my list of recipes she shared with me.

I’ll share my favorite recipe for banana cake, please try it out TODAY! This cake is called “Banana Bread” outside of Brazil… Confusing for me, but I have now eventually adopted this terminology.

So I now present you with my banana bread.
