I don't think an wonderful Brunch party will be completed without an dense and moist banana-cinnamon bread......
This banana-cinnamon bread is one of my favorite baked goodies for many reasons, first it is very easy to pull out. Next they taste great with little effort and it is a satisfying breakfast in my house. This recipe can be customized to our wish. I some time do without cinnamon or it can be turned to be a spiced banana bread by adding cinnamon, cloves, nutmeg and allspice powder. In the same way the walnut can be substituted with toasted almonds or any other nuts out our choice.
So my Banana Cinnamon Bread goes for this month's Monthly Mingle - "Brunch" hosted by Meeta of What's For Lunch, Honey?….
