THIS RICE COOKER BANANA BREAD QUALIFIES AS BAKING MAGIC
Banana bread is one of those perfect little pieces of baking alchemy that is as at-home as a midnight snack as it is on a dessert plate.
Well, what if we told you you didn’t have to even turn on your oven to make this moist, spongy bit of decadence?
Now, as with most banana bread recipes, we’d recommend using ripe bananas. In fact, this recipe is an excellent clearinghouse for the bananas that have seen better days – and might not be making it into your morning smoothie anymore.
And you can use walnuts or pecans if you like your banana bread to have a bit of crunch and texture. Or leave them out. Your choice. We usually make both versions when we head to the bake sale.
But no matter which version you make, we think you’ll be shocked at how easy it is to whip this up in an appliance you might not first think of when undertaking a baking project.
