banana bread recipe feature - banana bread with walnuts surrounded by figs

Banana bread is one of the easiest things to bake. It’s great for slicing up in a lunchbox or with a cuppa for afternoon tea. Although banana bread is a great way to use up overripe bananas, you don’t have to wait until they go brown to get your bake on. If you’ve got firmer bananas, simply pop them in a low oven (no need to peel) until the skins are brown all over. Leave to cool a little, then peel and mash away!
