Spiced banana bread

This banana bread lends a wonderful spicy note to the menu for a satisfying meal. I love making this original take on the traditional version. The palate swings between sweet cinnamon and spicy ginger with each slice. Ideal for brunch, it’s a snap to make and leaves me time to take care of the rest of the items on the menu.
