Banana Bread Recipe Cost

Banana bread loaf is a cheap recipe, it doesn’t use too many ingredients at all. It is one of those recipes where you can use up the banana’s that are just starting to turn.

Personally, I only eat banana’s when they have just turned yellow.

Once they start getting any black bits, I use to throw them away, not anymore. I now make this amazing banana bread recipe.

Banana bread has been around for years and years, it is thought to have started in the 1930’s when housewives didn’t want to waste anything, they came up with a way to use overripe bananas.

They created a cake recipe made with these overripe bananas and that is where banana bread comes from.

I have to say, I do love making the banana bread and it is a favourite in my family.
