Banana Bread

We’ve always been big fans of dipping in the family. My brother would dip his brioche in his hot chocolate every morning. When I make cake or bread in the morning I aways take out my favorite bowl from the Brittany, a region in Western France. All the bowls from the Faiencerie de Pornic have names written out in script and each member of my family has one.
This banana bread is the best thing to dip into my bowl of milk. It has the perfect amount of banana, the bread isn’t too sweet and it absorbs the milk perfectly.
