Banana bread is one of those timeless recipes that are famous everywhere in the world, and will never go out of fashion. I've been eating banana bread since I was a kid, and still seem to find it wherever I go. Always simple, always delicately sweet and spongy… it's hard to get it wrong with this cake.
For this reason, when I started a baking business some years ago, the first recipe I tried to perfect was this one. I knew I would have instant sales if I made banana bread, and I was right. Everyone loves it!
For those of you who don't have a loaf pan to make a traditional banana bread, those who want to prepare it in smaller portions for entertaining, or those who simply want an easier way to carry their banana bread around, here's an easy way to turn this classic into cute little muffins.
