The recipe for Banana Bread was first found in American cookbooks and led to an explosion in banana bread's popularity because of it's simplicity. Especially when ingredients such as baking powder and bicarbonate of soda started playing a more prominent role in home baking the banana bread became the perfect answer to what to do with your leftover bananas. Sliced up, the banana bread is an excellent snack and like muffins, pancakes, scones and other quick breads it's an indispensable part of a typical American breakfast/brunch on a lazy Sunday morning. The most popular varieties of the traditional banana bread are the Chocolate Chip Banana Bread and the Banana Nut Bread which adds chopped walnuts or pecans to the recipe.
Whisk manually to avoid the butter from splitting or mix at a low speed for just a few seconds.
Add some chocolate chips to the mixture or maybe some chopped hazelnuts or walnuts.
Slice up the banana bread and store for a few days in a sealed box. If you want to freeze some of the banana bread make sure to let it cool and then carefully wrap single portions in plastic foil to place them in freezer bags.
