Banana Bread

Latelly I have no time to cook! I’m not talking about the daily cook, I mean cooking a special recipe for the blog. I usually choose recipes taking into account seasonality, then herd the ingredients, cook and photographe it. This if the recipe comes out right at the first time, which doesn’t always happen. Lately the days have been so short that when I get home it’s so late that there’s no light to shoot.


Therefore, I’ve been choosing recipes that always work, and are easy and quick to prepare. It was precisely the case with this cake. Done with those basic ingredients, but guaranteed to obtain a moist cake and a delicious crust, which besides being good eaten when made, you can also freeze.
