Banana Loaf Cake
Banana Loaf Cake topped with a sticky pecan topping. This banana loaf cake will be finished before you know it!
Good morning it´s Friday! Friday is my favourite day of the week because it´s the start of the weekend and although I have to do some orders this weekend, it means I get to spend some quality time with my precious family!
I baked this banana loaf cake a week ago but since I had my birthday in-between I wanted to post the photos of my birthday cake first.. you´ll absolutely love this banana loaf bread, it´s packed with flavour and to make it taste even better I added pecan nut, honey and cinnamon topping that adds just the right amount of crunch and makes it even more yummier 🙂 🙂
Banana bread reminds me of when I was a child, my mother used to bake it often because thats what we do in South Africa with left over ripe bananas.. we make banana bread with them 🙂
I can remember the times I opened my lunch tin at school and inside there were thick slices of banana bread.. I can remember the smell like it was yesterday.. 🙂 Isn´t it amazing how smells can take you back in time.. sometimes good memories, sometimes bad.. luckily this smell brings back good memories 🙂
This recipe is very easy to make, perfect for those ripe bananas lying around.. and perfect for these cloudy autumn days we have here in the village of San Mateo.. and perfect as a gift, simply wrap your loaf in wax paper and tie it with a string or bake small loaf cakes as in the photo below (I made the small round one for a friend and popped it in a pretty round box and she really loved it..).
Well then, my Friday is about to start in full swing and this afternoon I get to watch my 3 year old son play his 1st football/soccer game ever.. I´m super excited as any mother would be 🙂
Hope you all have a wonderful weekend!
