For me, this banana bread has everything I want; moist (yes I said moist) dense yet light as air, rich flavor without an overpowering spice profile, no nuts, no bullshit.
I served it for brunch with a greek yogurt that I mixed with coffee & tahini.... I ate it for dessert with a schmear of nutella and maldon salt... I finished it off for a snack two days later where I cut it in half and grilled it in a cast iron then drizzled black tahini and topped with crispy bacon and arugula.
That last one might sound crazy, but I guarantee you it was delicious. When it comes to the scent of nostalgia you can rewrite the story, but there is always a hint of simple truth deep down inside.
