I am sick to death of throwing out food especially brown banana’s. Do you ever find you either have not enough bananas or too many? What is the right number of bananas to buy for a week???? HELPPPPP!!!
Anyway, in my new quest to avoid throwing out brown Banana’s, I have decided that every Friday before our weekly Aldi food shop (if we have bananas left) – George and I will bake a Banana and Raisin bread for the weekend.
The beauty of this recipe is it is so easy and it only takes about 15 minutes to prepare!!!!
