This banana bread is packed with banana flavor, and an excellent way to use up lots of overripe bananas.
It does dirty quite a few bowls and bakes a long time – but it’s worth it!
The loaf comes out very moist, but retains great structure.
If you’re also a tea lover – remove stickers, rinse before use, and save up your banana peels in the freezer for Banana Peel Tea
