Have a look at these pictures. Chocolate that is so dark, it almost seems black. Bright berries in between.
Can you smell it? Chocolaty-banana-y (is that even a word?), malty – the smell of comfort and childhood.
Can you feel it on your tongue? Soft dough, still warm from the oven, juicy and slightly sweet. Paired with the freshness of ripe strawberries.
And the taste…What?!? You’re already in the kitchen, mashing bananas with a fork? Perfect! I’ll not continue with my story then. You’ll discover everything else about this phenomenal, healthy and delicious breakfast bread yourself.
Let me just say this: Whatever the day will bring – it cannot do you any harm if you’ve got a piece of this banana bread in your bag. So, bring some pieces with you in the muki while they are still warm and enjoy them, even with toppings, on the way.
