Well, that was the snack of the day! These banana loaves are one of my favorites and are frequent in our home. The moment it changes its color from smooth yellow to black, most of the folks think about blending in a smoothie. In my case, I love to bake something in my cute mini loaves pan. So I separate them from the bunch and pop them in the oven to turn them into something yummy and delicious looking mini banana loaves. For a change and out of curiosity I used a pinch of turmeric powder for the slightly yellow texture. Trust me, the normal turmeric aroma disappears as it blends well in the batter and in the end you get a great treat. That’s what I was looking for and I’m glad that it worked well.
Everyone has their own signature version since it’s one of the ubiquitous and delightful snacks across the world. To me, it’s a perfect fit to glow the weekends… As I said, it was picture perfect and glad that these minis didn’t disappoint me. Oh, it was divinely moist as well. Anyway I’m glad to share these small treats here. What do you think?
