Banana bread was the¬†first Artem ľs baking experience, and¬†it ľs a¬†great choice for¬†an¬†aspiring baker: easy to¬†bake, doesn ľt require many ingredients besides overripe bananas and¬†whatever nuts and¬†dried fruits you have at¬†home. It ľs a¬†great addition to¬†any outdoor activity‚ÄĮ‚ÄĒ‚ÄĮwhether it ľs a¬†picnic with your family, a¬†hike with friends, or¬†a¬†solo photography outing (don ľt forget a¬†thermos with coffee!). Of¬†course, it¬†tastes great at¬†home¬†too!

Notes & tips

For nuts, I like to use pecans, almonds, dried apricots, dried cranberries, and dried rhubarb. Experiment and find what you like.
Use a wooden toothpick to check the cake for readiness: insert it into the cake in several places, if the toothpick is dry, the cake is ready. If the top of the cake is getting to brown, cover it with tinfoil.

This recipe is inspired by the Banana banana bread recipe.
