The funny thing about this post is whenever I feel like making/baking something with banana, I would be out of banana at home. Then I have to buy most ripen banana from the store which I regularly not even touch..:)..For the reason that this will not even last two or three days .

To be honest banana bread is the most easy and delicious thing to bake at home.After getting the main ingredient I decided to make this for our weekend breakfast and the best part is it does not require a mixer.

I would say this is the best banana bread recipe I have ever tried. The result is an super moist and perfect bread to serve for breakfast or anytime in between.

I gave a slice of banana bread to my son and  asked him “How is it baby?” and his verdict was YUMMY MOMMY…:)

  • 1 egg, lightly beaten
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 2 tablespoon milk
