Intro: Mini Banana Bread
Not only is this recipe delicious, but it won the Portability Award in the Arbitrary Category of the first ever Instructables Banana Bread Bake Off. In its small paper shell, you can easily shove it into your pocket and take it most anywhere. Don't even consider trying to do that with a normal loaf of banana bread. You can't! That is what make this recipe so portable.
Did I mention it tastes pretty good too? Honestly, the taste is my favorite part of this recipe. It is not overwhelmingly sweet as banana bread can tend to be and it has a nice smooth subtle flavor.
A double whammy! Taste and portability. Make this recipe now!
