Banana bread...is it even a bread? I love it, with or without the butter. This one is a roasted banana bread recipe and it has been around for ages, since 2010 in fact. This is a re-write.
I didn't have black skinned bananas, they were getting there, but to help them, I roasted the bananas for around 30 minutes until they had split slightly and were oozing their caramelised juices out and about all over the place. Yum! In an effort to keep these little treats 'healthy' I added the spelt, which I have to say was perfectly suited. These were fantastic served warm with whipped cream, but would be equally suited to a breakfast with additional sliced fresh bananas and yoghurt. One step closer to that cafe I plan in my dreams!
