There’s nothing I love more than making banana bread when I have a few ripe bananas in the kitchen. It’s a quick and easy solution and always delicious and satisfying next to my cup of coffee in the morning.

I made this following banana bread with a tropical twist and added some rum and coconut. It’s one of the most fragrant banana breads I ever made, super soft and tender, moist and simply divine. You will only need one bowl and a whisk in order to make it and everyone will love it!
