Recipe Notes

  1. Only use over ripe black bananas to get the meat out of it. Else this is not going to taste or look good.
  2. BAKING WITH OTHER SIZE TINS - you can bake with other size tins, this batter is enough for one 8 x2  inch round or square pan. 
  3. You can triple quadruple this recipe. but make sure you mix and bake together. you are not letting mixed batter to sit on the counter.
  4. Cool completely before cutting into slices 
  5. This banana bread will not rise much. it will be a lightly flatter bread.
