Ah, the good old banana bread: rustic, classic, and reliable. A fantastic company for coffee over breakfast or snack time. I simply love it. Not to mention the aroma it creates in the apartment when I bake it.
When I started learning how to bake, I picked beginner-friendly recipes. One of them was this wonderful Dark Chocolate Banana Bread recipe by Baker Bettie. It became a favorite. This summer, I found another hit: Banana Blueberry Bread by Giada De Laurentiis. It has made a few appearances since then. I love how the spicy nutmeg and cinnamon reveal their wonderful presence in every bite.
I follow the recipe with a couple of minor adjustments:
- Place a sheet of parchment paper to line my oven loaf pan
- Bake the bread for 55 minutes instead of 60 minutes (my apartment’s oven tends to get really hot I think)

Thanks for reading and I wish you a wonderful weekend!
