This Banana Bread Loaf is delicious and moist with lots of flavour. Perfect sliced with tea or coffee. Banana bread is wonderful toasted too. Best with overripe bananas.
It was my birthday on Friday. I turned 21 again, but with 11 years experience! Yes, that's right, I turned 32. *barf*
I've always enjoyed birthdays, that is until I turned 29. I was terrified of the BIG 3-0! But 30 wasn't a big deal after all.
Saying that, I still get asked for I.D when I attempt to buy alcohol in supermarkets! :lol: It always makes me laugh. Most of the cashiers asking me are always older than I am, but one time a young cashier (who barely looked old enough to be working, let alone be demanding my I.D) asked me just before Christmas when I picked up a bottle of barely alcoholic cider for the giant man baby, but thanks for the huge compliment anyway. ;)
I think 30 was my cut off point where I didn't want to tell anyone my age after I reached it and beyond. There's nothing like birthdays to remind you that you're getting old after your cut off point, and people seem to know that and buy you the funny 'you're an old hag' cards too. Pffft, nice!
I had to comfort myself in some way or another and since there were some overripe bananas looking at me with big puppy eyes, I chose to make a Banana Bread Loaf.
I've never tried banana bread until now, but I'm so glad I did. The orange juice in this banana bread makes it so incredibly moist but without a strong orange flavour. Of course the bananas make it moist too, and add that incredible delicious flavour.
If you haven't tried banana bread yet, you've been missing out! Go make some, stat! :)
