Our Banana Bread Recipe Secrets
By 'spare' bananas, I mean overripe ones that don't get eaten up in time. I simply peel them and throw them in a plastic bag or container and into the freezer.
That's Secret Number 1, by the way. Never use fresh bananas. Always use overripe ones that have been frozen. They won't be pretty but they will be full of flavour to help make your banana bread delicious.
Oh, and I see that I've already given you Secret Number 2, which is to freeze your bananas peeled. That makes using them so EASY. Just pull them out of the freezer and defrost and you are ready to go.
Secret Number 3 is the hardest secret. Never, ever eat your banana bread on the day you make it. Banana bread is one of those foods that is simply BETTER the next day. We are pretty good with this rule because we know what a difference it makes in flavour.
Perhaps my family's favorite secret is Secret Number 4 -- MAKE TWO. If you only make one, well it is gone in the blink of an eye. If you make two, there's more for later. I always try to freeze one for a rainy day...but it is not always that easy to get away with hiding one around my house.
