ABOUT Simple Banana Bread RECIPE

Simple banana bread with a hint of cinnamon is your answer to the lying over-ripe bananas in your pantry. This perfectly sweetened banana bread with a mild aroma of cinnamon is perfect to woo your husband. I tried a lot of different recipes from different blogs on Pinterest. Finally, I formulated this fool-proof recipe for Banana bread. I have tried this recipe about 3 times now, and every time it comes out super yummy, super moist and spongy.
