You may have noticed on my social media that we saw the new year in over in Kerala in India. There is going to be a some more ‘what I did on my holiday’ on here over the coming months, but I am here today to talk about banana bread!
It was a busy holiday – seven stops in 15 days. But absolutely everywhere we went, there was always a slice of banana bread to be had! Either on the breakfast buffet, with tea in the afternoon, or both! So to come home and be bereft of banana bread was a bit of a downer.

At 4PM a bell sounds….then everything stops for tea! A tea cart appears on the lawn serving tea, coffee and snacks. Today’s snacks are banana bread and a sweet rice pressed with jaggery, fruit & nuts. Can I please stay in Kerela forever? . . . #incredibleindia #india #kerala #keralatourism #holiday #travel #vacation #wanderlust #keralafood #tea #chai #food #foodie #foodies100 #whatiate #nomnom #foodpics
I’ve been making banana bread for years. The original recipe was given to me by my friend Nic and I twiddle with it! This time, I decided to add a touch of chocolate and cardamom – both of which were grown on an organic spice farm we visited in Thekkady. But I definitely don’t want it to be a chocolate cake so it is just a hint of cocoa.(more…)
