Banana & Maple Syrup Bread

by Katrina - The Organised Housewife

A Banana and Maple Syrup Loaf recipe that’s quick to prep, is perfect for freezing, and makes a fabulous afternoon snack or school lunchbox treat.

This Banana and Maple Syrup Bread recipe only takes 10 minutes to prep, and is a great way to use up those overripe bananas in the bottom of the fruit bowl.

I like to make two of these banana loaves at the same time. My family eat one hot from the oven (it’s lovely with a nice cuppa!), and the other is sliced up and popped into the freezer for easy-to-grab school snacks on a busy morning.

Would you put butter or margarine on two slices before freezing and joining together?

Absolutely! I do and the defrost perfectly fine.

Hi Katrina
Silly question but can you advise what size loaf tin?
I have 3 sizes and if I put in a too small pan it overflows and if pan is too large it finishes up looking like a pancake ( I’ve done both !)
