Ginger Banana Bread


As I have told last week, that I wish bake daily a cake or cookie or bread, but unfortunately last week both of kids were down with viral fever and now it’s me with high fever. Unlucky me, but still I hope I could bake atleast once in two days. Stay TUNED.

When I was searching for a bread recipe, I found out this Ginger Banana Bread. But I thought of inducing spices to bread, so did it.

The bread was yummy, spongy with little spicy taste in it. The quantity of spice powder depends on your taste buds, but when you add more the quantity of spices in it, I hope it won’t be like a bread. Let us move on to the recipe…
