I’m not convinced there is anything more comforting than a piece of banana bread with a generous dollop of nut butter or mascarpone and some fresh fruit or compote on the side. It’s one of my go-to recipes when I’ve got some time on my hands and want something that reminds me of home. It’s brilliant if you have a bunch of over-ripe bananas or frozen ones that need eating and it can be rustled up in just over sixty minutes. I love to toast my banana bread too (inspired by my trips to Leo’s Beanery (Edinburgh), which in my opinion does the very best breakfast banana bread around) and switch in and out ingredients, depending on what I have in the store cupboard (or what’s currently available in the shops).
