Banana Bread comes in many different packages, shapes, and flavors. It originates from many different cultures and baking viewpoints. For instance in the old country it might be made using goats milk and or stone ground flour. Different styles of baking are common and expected. Do you roll yours out like bread dough? Or do you throw all the ingredients into a bread maker and say Voila! while you are hitting the start switch? hmm.. Interesting!
