Banana is a very versatile ingredient. It can be made and added to any type of dish and dessert you want to make or even drinks. It can be used whether it is not yet ripe, ripe or over ripe. Nothing beats the use of this ingredient. This recipe calls for an over ripe banana, but if you do not have one, you don't need to wait for it to become over ripe. You can just use the banana as it is (ripe).

Tips

  • You can always add nuts of your choice and raisins (you can add both if you want).
  • Be careful in adding baking soda. If you add more than what is called for, it tends to have a soapy taste.
  • A simple glace icing can be made to top this recipe.
